With the arrival of new versions comes the Android, as of iOS, it is natural that some older versions will lose support for many applications, and this is no different with WhatsApp. Now, the team of developers behind what is the most popular messaging app on the planet, announces that some versions of Android will no longer support the app.
So, as of November 1, 2021, WhatsApp will no longer provide support for devices that do not have Android 4.1 or higher.
What does this mean for WhatsApp users?
From that date, if your device does not have Android 4.1 or higher, it will not be able to update the application to receive new features. Furthermore, you will not be able to register your number on a device with that system. In other words, even if you have the application installed on your device, but you don’t have any registered number, you won’t be able to register.
What if I have the application installed and registered? You will be able to continue using the application normally, and you will just not be able to update it, and thus have access to new features. And if for some reason you have to uninstall the application from your device, you will no longer be able to install it again. If you install via APK, you will not be able to register your number in the application, that is, you will not be able to use it.
The solution? It’s about being able to update your smartphone’s firmware to a newer version.
