Probably no one will deny that WhatsApp is the most popular instant messaging platform in the world. The app works on smartphones, tablets, and also supports end-to-end encryption.
Moreover, even if you do not like WhatsApp, you cannot deny that the application has entered our life so much that you can no longer imagine your smartphone without it. Some of your friends or acquaintances definitely use it.
Unfortunately, some devices will soon lose the ability to run the application. On Friday, January 1st, WhatsApp will stop working on some smartphones – this event will affect Android and iOS devices.
However, this limitation will affect older Android smartphones, with Android versions lower than 4.0.3 and iPhones with iOS versions lower than 9. Recall that the same thing happened last year when Facebook stopped supporting devices running iOS 8 and Android 2.3. 7.
To not lose access to WhatsApp, you will have to update your smartphone to a more recent version of Android or iOS or buy a newer device.
So if you were planning to upgrade your device, now is the time.
