It is not the first time that WhatsApp has announced that its application will no longer be compatible with certain mobile phones. The reason why the app stops working is because the platform, as it adds new updates, becomes increasingly complex. demand more resources from cell phones.

The brands that will be affected by this new measure are: Samsung, Apple, LG, Sony, Motorola, iPhone and Huawei. Starting next month, WhatsApp will work only on devices with the Android 4.1 operating system and iOS 10, or higher versions. Cell phones that do not have these versions in their system will be able to continue using the messaging app for a while, but eventually it will begin to present failures until it stops working.
