WhatsApp Won’t Work On These Phones From November 1: Check The Full List

WhatsApp has declared that some smartphones running on older OS will become irrelevant, beginning from November 1. WhatsApp will require devices to run on Android OS 4.1 and above, iOS 10 and above or phones running on KaiOS 2.5.1 or above, including the JioPhone and JioPhone 2. This new change results from the three social media outages that occurred a few weeks ago.

Before you check the list of phones that won’t accept Whatsapp, make sure your phone is updated to the latest version of the OS.

You can do it by heading over to the “Settings” menu and looking for any available updates. Apart from the software, some devices will not be compatible with WhatsApp from November 1 onwards.

If you have any of these devices, the solution is to back up your messages and then purchase a new smartphone and restore your chat history.
