In 2021 WhatsApp Application Will Not Work on These Smartphones

In 2021 WhatsApp Application Will Not Work on These Smartphones - Some Android and iOS cellphones may not be able to use the WhatsApp message program next year. The reason is that the company will withdraw support for the non-updated version of the OS starting in 2021.

Citing LiveMint, WhatsApp will only work on cellphones running the Android operating system 4.0.3 or later. For iPhone, it will work on iOS 9 and later.

Until Android phones such as the HTC Desire, LG Optimus Black, Motorola Droid Razr and Samsung Galaxy S2 are unlikely to be able to return to using this program.

Temporarily for iPhone, iPhone 4 and its initial mode does not work for this program. 4S, 5, 5S, 5C, 6, and 6S modes require updating the operating mechanism to iOS 9 or later to use WhastApp.

However, Facebook's instant messaging platform continues to run programs for specific phones with OS KaiOS 2.5.1 or later, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2.

“There is no option to transfer the story of the conversation. But WhatsApp will provide the option to export conversation stories in addition to e-mails," the medium noted again, quoting a Facebook subsidiary.

Here are the steps to identify the operating mechanism on an Android phone:

Settings > on the About menu > if the version used is 4.0.3 or later, then WhatsApp will continue to be used next year.

Current iPhone user:

Settings > General > About > if it shows iOS 9 or later then WhatsApp can be used next year. S

Initially in 2020, WhatsApp could no longer be used on Android 2.3.7 phones and below. For iPhone, the program cannot be used on i0S 8 and below.
