When it comes to messaging apps, WhatsApp is the most popular one. It has billions of people who use it every day from all over the world.
In most cases, the messaging app is compatible with most smartphones today.
However, the platform is sometimes unusable because the companies don’t want to use the old software versions that they used to.
Until March 31, any phone with any Android, iOS, or KaiOS version won’t be able to use the messaging app.
How do we know which versions of Android and iOS will no longer work with WhatsApp after this date? WhatsApp has answered this question on its FAQ page so that we can see it for ourselves.
Some phones won’t be able to use WhatsApp from March 31
Android Phones: If your phone doesn’t have Android 4.1 or higher, WhatsApp won’t work on your phone at all. You’ll need a phone number or an SMS number to ensure your account is real.
