Whatsapp will not work from November; find out a list of Smartphones

Whatsapp will not work from November; find out a list of Smartphones

Users of 43 models of smartphones will soon be unable to use the popular instant messaging app WhatsApp.

On November 1, the Facebook-owned platform will stop working on phones that run on systems older than Android OS 4.1, Apple's iOS 10, and KaiOS 2.5.1, according to its FAQ section.

All of these phones will not receive support from WhatsApp and will be incompatible with the app.

If this includes your device, you'll need to upgrade to a newer model of phone that has an operating system the company supports – or use a different messaging service altogether.

However, the company has also introduced a new feature – "one of the most requested features," according to a blog post – to allow users to migrate their chats when switching from iOS to Samsung Android devices.

Before this, iOS chat histories would be stored in iCloud, while Android records went to Google Drives, making it nearly impossible to transfer chats between phones that use different operating systems. Users would be advised to instead email their chat histories to themselves.

The new feature encompasses voice messages, photos, and videos but does not call history or display names.

WhatsApp said

"To start, the feature is available on any Samsung smartphones running on Android 10 or higher version, and will be available on more Android devices soon,"

The migration will also need to be completed during the initial set-up of new phones, as the WhatsApp instructions read: "Your new Android device must be factory new or reset to factory settings." Users would alternatively need to do a factory reset of a device that is already using it.

How to do it here Please find out.

"This is just a start,"

WhatsApp in the blog post said

"We looking forward to making this option available for more people to switch between platforms of their choice and securely take their chats with them."
