WhatsApp Will Stop Working On These Phones In 2024

Spread the love

Regarded as one of the top messenger apps in the world, WhatsApp has become a necessary household app whenever you get a smartphone. Meta has been working around the clock making new updates to WhatsApp to try and catch up with more advanced messengers like Telegram – constantly improving it and adding new features to it to extend its capabilities.

WhatsApp is supported on several phones and devices running Android, iOS, and even some feature phones running alternative OS. Although Meta has tried to maintain a long support life for several devices, there comes a time when they have to pull the plug and invest their resources elsewhere and this time it’s happening again.

Over 35 phones are losing support for WhatsApp this year and it’s high time to check out if your device makes the cut or not before you start looking for options soon. According to a report from CanalTech, WhatsApp stopped receiving updates on a total of 35 mobile phones that have older versions of Google’s Android and Apple iOS operating systems.

The mobile devices that are losing or have already lost support for WhatsApp include models from Samsung, Motorola, Huawei, Sony, LG, and also Apple too. To keep yourself safe from malicious attacks and continue receiving the newest updates, it’s best to check this list and find out whether it’s time to upgrade your phone.

Here’s the interesting part, some of the devices on the list are over 7 years old with outdated hardware but have been supporting WhatsApp for a long time but sadly, it’s time to cut ties. Currently, Meta, recommends using the app on devices with at least Android 5.0 or later while Apple recommends it on iPhones with iOS 12 (or later).
