End of the line: WhatsApp ends support for older Android phones

0

WhatsApp While seeking to improve memory management on more basic phones and studying greater integration between the versions for Android and iOS, WhatsApp will finally fulfill its main promise of 2019: the app should lose support for older smartphones.

According to the folks at WABetaInfo, even though WhatsApp has already announced that it will stop working on Android phones below 4.1, the messenger had paralyzed its schedule due to the pandemic of the new coronavirus.

Now, with the release of beta version 2.20.198.12, WhatsApp has officially cut support for the few devices that still run Android 4.0.3. This indicates that soon the stable app will also no longer work on these phones.

With the implementation of the change, WhatsApp now no longer works on the following operating systems :

  • Android 4.0.3 or earlier
  • iPhone with iOS 8 or earlier
  • Nokia Symbian 40 series and 60 series
  • Windows Phone Smartphones
  • Smartphones with BlackBerry or BlackBerry 10 software

If the user still accesses the messenger on any device with the operating system listed above, the only way out is to buy a new smartphone.
