Note! List of cellphones that can't use WhatsApp anymore this year


Every year WhatsApp always stops its support for some Android phones and iPhones running older operating systems. As a result, many phones can no longer use WhatsApp after its support has been removed.

In its latest regulations, WhatsApp only supports phones running Android 4.1 or later, iOS 12 or later, and KaiOS 2.5.0 or later.

WhatsApp says it regularly reviews what operating systems can be supported and gets updates because phones and software change frequently.

"To choose what to discontinue support, every year we, like other technology companies, look at what devices and software are the oldest and have the least number of users," WhatsApp said in its FAQ page, as quoted by us, Wednesday (15/6). /2022).

"These devices may also not have the latest security updates, or may not have the functionality required to run WhatsApp."

WhatsApp says it will always notify users directly via the app if their phone will no longer be supported, complete with a reminder to update the phone's operating system.

If the Android phone and iPhone that you are using are not getting the latest operating system updates, then the solution is to buy a new phone with an operating system that is still supported.
