WhatsApp Will Stop Working On Older Phones

WhatsApp will stop working on older phones starting from October 24th. This means that if you have a phone that is not running on Android OS 5.0 or above, WhatsApp will no longer be supported on your device. The company is ending support for some of the oldest and least used phones.

If you have one of these phones, it is recommended to update your device.

Here are the eligibility criteria for WhatsApp support:

  • Android phones with OS 4.1 and above
  • iPhones with iOS 12 and later
  • Phones with KaiOS 2.5.0 and above, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2

To check the Android OS version of your phone, go to Phone Settings > About phone > Software information. If your phone is running on Android 4.0 or below, WhatsApp will no longer be supported on your device after October.

To check the iOS version of your phone, go to the general settings and select the About option. There, you can see the current iOS version running on your phone.

Before ending support, WhatsApp will notify you in advance that your device’s operating system will no longer be supported. They will also send you a reminder to upgrade your device.

Some of the devices that will lose WhatsApp support include HTC One M8, Sony Xperia Z, LG Optimus G Pro, Samsung Galaxy S2, Samsung Galaxy Nexus, HTC Sensation, Motorola Droid Razr, Sony Xperia S2, and more.
