Whatsapp stops working on dozens of mobile phones. Know which ones

On December 31, many mobile phones will no longer be compatible with Whatsapp. Find out if your smartphone is on this list.

WhatsApp, one of the most popular messaging apps in the world, recently announced that it will stop working on some smartphones starting December 31, 2022.

Therefore, users of these devices will not be able to use the application to send and receive messages, make voice or video calls or share files.

The decision was taken due to the fact that the operating systems of these devices have become obsolete, not being supported by WhatsApp.

As such, smartphones with older operating systems, such as Android 2.3.7 and older or iOS 8 and older, lose compatibility with the app.

While this change may be inconvenient for some users, it is important to remember that operating systems becoming obsolete is a natural phenomenon in the technology industry.

New operating systems are released regularly, and as technology advances, older devices may not be able to keep up with these changes.
