0

Popular social media messaging app, Whatsapp will no longer work on some phones as from November 1, 2021, due to compatibility issues.

The phones that will be affected include 52 android and iPhone devices owned by millions of users worldwide.

Naija News 247 understands the inability of the application to function on these devices is because owners of the platform will cease to provide support for the operating system running on such old model devices.

To be able to continue enjoying Whatsapp services, owners of affected devices have two options – upgrade their device software (if possible) or get a brand new phone.
