Be careful, if you have a smartphone that is more than five years old, you can no longer use Whatsapp. From November 1, the app will stop working on about 40 devices.
On its site, the social network explains that terminals with Android 4.1 and earlier versions of iOS 10 will see their messaging worse. The reason? These operating systems were released eight and five years ago, respectively, so it is considered too old to support future updates for the application.
As a result, users of these older phones will no longer be able to update, but will still be able to use the app after November 1st. However, some features will not be available gradually until the application stops working well.
