WhatsApp will not work on these 35 phones, check if your model is there

WhatsApp has again updated their 'Minimum System Requirements' rule. For this the older generation mobile phone users are going to be greatly affected. According to reports, WhatsApp will not be releasing any new updates or security patches in the foreseeable future for a total of 35 handsets from popular brands like Samsung, Motorola, Huawei, Sony, LG and Apple. It is said that this step has been taken mainly to improve the overall performance and security of this messaging platform. However, this will require some WhatsApp users to shell out money and upgrade their devices.

What are the listed phone owners to do?

If your mobile phone is included in this list, we suggest you to buy a new smartphone as soon as possible. Because you will not be able to access new features if you use WhatsApp on un-supported devices that have stopped releasing updates and security patches. Above all, there will also be security risks, due to which personal data may be stolen. So by upgrading to a new mobile, you can keep your messages, calls and media data safe on the WhatsApp platform.

Many people may be inconvenienced by this decision of the Meta-owned messaging platform. However, this update of WhatsApp will ensure the best user experience and multiple security features for the rest.
