These cell phones will be left without WhatsApp starting October 24


WhatsApp is the leading instant messaging application and is installed on the phones of millions of users worldwide. However, the application owned by Meta is constantly updated to provide better features, security and good service to its users; causing older devices to be incompatible with newer versions.

It should be remembered that the famous “list of phones to leave without WhatsApp” that has gone viral for years is characterized by the abandonment of many devices based on their operating system and not on specific models or brands.

Often, developers choose cell phone models that work with software that is too old to stop supporting it. In this case, those running Android 4.1 or iOS 12 will be left without WhatsApp starting October 24, as reported by the developers of the application in their official blog.

So the smartphones that will be left without this service are:

– Samsung Galaxy Core

Devices and software are constantly changing, so supported operating systems are regularly reviewed and updated accordingly.
