Though some ought to remain primitive, technology changes at a higher pace. Once again some phones are going to lose access to WhatsApp due to technological changes.
The leading market chat app announced that all Android devices running version 4.0.4 or older won’t be able to run the Facebook-owned WhatsApp.
This change will come into effect on November 1, 2021.
The WhatsApp Android FAQ page revealed support for version 4.O.4 is being dropped.
“WhatsApp will no longer support Android phones running 0S 4.0.4 and older as from November 1, 2021. Please switch to supported devices,” read Statement by WhatsApp.
If your Android phone is running version 4.0.4 which was released in 2012, then you need to upgrade to a later build of the Google-made OS.
In the same vein, if your device isn’t entitled to a later upgrade then you will have no choice to buy a newer Android phone if you want to continue using WhatsApp.
Earlier this year WhatsApp ended support for i0S9, which points out that Apple fans needed to have at least an iPhone 5 to use the chat app.
