Cell phones are constantly changing and the same happens with the applications available to be used on this type of mobile device, including WhatsApp.
Regularly, your cell phone asks you to update its operating system and therefore also your apps; however, there are models that reach an update limit and therefore become practically useless.
On the subject, according to information released by the Wabetainfo technology website, recently WhatsApp announced on which cell phones it will stop working as of November 1.
“WhatsApp will end support for phones with Android 4.0.4 or earlier as of November 1, 2021. We recommend changing to a compatible device or saving your chat history before that date ”, can be read in a statement released by the company.
In addition, WhatsApp explained that its oldest version that will continue to have support will be those cell phones that operate with Android 4.1, as long as they can receive SMS or calls during the number verification process. In addition, the company also indicated that they will be able to offer support for Android tablets that have an active SIM card and will not support devices that only work with Wi-Fi.
It should be noted that a couple of days ago, WhatsApp stopped working on smartphones whose operating system was lower than iOS 10.
