WhatsApp already warned: “as of November 1, 2021, WhatsApp will no longer be compatible with phones with the Android 4.0.4 operating system and earlier versions “, reads its official Help Center. IPhone devices that have versions of their operating system prior to iOS 10 will also not be able to access the network Social.
(Also: Telegram and Signal, other messaging apps that you can use)
This means that several cell phones that cannot access the latest updates to their operating systems, both Android and iOS, will be left without WhatsApp.
