Why will millions of users be deprived of WhatsApp from May 31?

Deemed obsolete, around fifty smartphone models will soon no longer have access to the messaging application, reveals “Le Parisien”. I subscribe for 1€ the 1st month

To use one of the most popular instant messengers in the world, it will be better to have the right phone model from now on. Application launched in 2013, WhatsApp will offer a new update internationally. The latter will no longer be compatible with older versions of Android and iOS, as Le Parisien spotted on Friday May 27. As a result, a plethora of smartphones considered obsolete will be deliberately discarded by this communication system, pushing users to update their operating system or acquire more recent mobiles.

The fifty references concerned were listed by the company WhatsApp: Apple iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, Lеnоvо А820, ZТЕ V956, Ѕаmѕung Gаlахy Тrеnd Lіtе, Galaxy Trend II, Galaxy S3 mini, Galaxy Xcover 2, Gаlахy Асе 2, Gаlахy Соrе, Нuаwеі Аѕсеnd D2, Аѕсеnd G740, Ascend Mate, Fаеа F1, Аrсhоѕ 53 Рlаtіnum, НТС Dеѕіrе 500, Саtеrріllаr, Саt В15, Ѕоny Хреrіа М, Wіkо, Сіnk Fіvе, Darknight, ТНL W8, ZТЕ Grаnd Х, Quаd v987, Grand Memo, Grand S Flex, LG Luсіd 2, Optimus F7, Optimus L3 II Dual, Optimus F5, Optimus L5 II Dual, Optimus L3 II, Optimus L7 II Dual, Optimus L7II, Optimus F6, Optimus L4 II Dual, Optimus F3, Optimus L4 II, Optimus L2 II, Optimus F3Q.

Restrictions launched in the fall

WhatsApp, which boasts 2 billion active users and has no less than 7 billion voice messages sent daily, started this exclusion policy as early as fall 2021. As of November 1, owners of devices over 5 years old, equipped with versions prior to Android 4.1 and iOS 10, had seen access to the application restricted to them. Updates were no longer offered to them and messaging accumulated various malfunctions, but access to conversations was still authorized. Until that fateful day of May 31.
