WhatsApp Will Stop Working On Several Smartphones: Everything You Need To Know About This Big Move
Messaging app WhatsApp will no longer run on several mobile devices from now on since the popular service stated that its main intention is to work on the smartphones that the majority of people use. Although this is a clever move from the company, there are many users that have strongly criticized this action, since eliminating the service for old phones would affect millions of people.
A Huge Setback For Many Users Around The World
According to the Daily Star, Windows Phone 7, iPhone 3GS/iOS 6, Android 2.1 and Android 2.2 are some of the mobile devices that will no longer have the opportunity of having the messaging app. Some analysts have said that even when this is a move that WhatsApp needed to do sooner or later, it represent a huge setback for many customers around the world that doesn't have the enough money to own some of the newest phones in the market.
In fact, in many Latin American countries as Venezuela, Guatemala or Bolivia, WhatsApp will practically become a service the only the wealthiest people could use, given the fact that popular phones as any Samsung Galaxy or iPhone are quite expensive in these nations, and several users use the cheapest mobile devices, which are the majority of the brands that the messaging app will no longer let it use its service.
WhatsApp Extended Its Support For Some Mobile Devices
Nevertheless, in a recent update, WhatsApp said that it would extend its support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017, which were some of the phones that the company said it would eliminate its service. As reported by The Sun, any iPhone 5, 4 or 4S that hasn't been updated to the iOS 10 will no longer be available to run WhatsApp.
This also includes iPads, which also represent bad news for those who use the messaging app on these devices. In short, if you use some of these phones, you´re forced to upgrade to the newest one in order to keep using Whatsapp.
