From November 1, WhatsApp will stop working for some Android and iOS phones

WhatsApp will stop working for some Android, iOS phones from Nov 1

WhatsApp has a new list of devices that it has decided to stop supporting. As every year, the popular messaging platform has decided to discontinue support for many older Android, iOS and QOS devices and this decision will take effect from 1 November.

Devices powered by Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich, iOS 9, or QOS 2.5.0 will face this fate this year.

WhatsApp will stop working on these devices

A Frequently Asked Questions page suggests that WhatsApp will only support Android phones 4.1 and later versions, iOS 10 and then iPhone and Kios 2.5.1 and beyond. Kios devices in India include Geophone and Geophone 2 in India.

Therefore, if you have a device that is older than Android, iOS or QOS, then it’s time to upgrade. The good thing is that you’ve got about two months to change. You can either upgrade to a newer OS version and if not, a new phone is the only option.

That said, this new change is not expected to affect many people because it is actually an older OS version.

This comes after WhatsApp discontinued support for a bunch of older devices last December. These included devices running Android 4.0.2 and iOS 8.

In related news, WhatsApp is expected to launch several new features soon. This includes the ability to know the response to messages with emoji, such as Instagram, Facebook and even iMessages. We may get to see a new chat design in the form of chat bubbles.

The Facebook-owned platform could also launch a new capability that allows people to search for messages sent by date and more. All of these features are still in beta and are expected to launch in the coming months.

If this happens we will post it to you. So stay tuned.
