WhatsApp Won’t Be Working On These Smartphones!
Recently WhatsApp has given a very sad, or I would say “Tragic” statement. In a recent announcement, Facebook owned Whatsapp has mentioned few iPhones and Android smartphones, on which WhatsApp won’t work.
1. Nokia Symbian S60
2. Windows Phone 8.0 and older
3. BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
4. Android versions older than 2.3.3
5. iPhone 3GS/iOS 6
Sadly the users having these operating systems won’t be able to make new accounts, also they are given a date till which they will be able to use WhatsApp without changing the system
1. Android versions 2.3.7 and older until February 1, 2020
2. Nokia S40 until December 31, 2018
3. iOS 7 and older until February 1, 2020
Thus it is highly recommended to check your operating systems and upgrade them. You need to upgrade on these systems
1. Android running OS 4.0+
2. Windows Phone 8.1 +
3. iPhone running iOS 8+
WhatsApp writes in a blog post
“Once you have one of these devices, simply install WhatsApp and verify your phone number on the new device. Keep in mind that WhatsApp can only be activated with one phone number on one device at a time,”
WhatsApp also gives you option to email your chat history to yourself.
Life Without WhatsApp??? So Scary!
