Here we offer Samsung users something that is hard to believe. Do you have experience with Samsung smartphones older than eight years? However, there is a possibility that only a few people in the world still use such an outdated technology.
But for those who are still using such old devices, there is bad news if you use WhatsApp. In the next few days, WhatsApp will no longer support older Samsung phones.
WhatsApp is a widely used free messaging app that allows people to communicate without spending a dime.
WhatsApp is a free cross-platform messaging app that allows you to make free voice and video calls.
According to the analysis, more than 2 billion people in more than 180 countries use WhatsApp to connect with their loved ones.
WhatsApp was launched in 2009 and allowed users of iPhone and Android smartphones and Mac and Windows PCs to call and exchange text messages, calls, videos and images with other people around the world for free.
In addition, WhatsApp is cost-effective and has become very popular among users who travel abroad and do not have data plans.
According to the company, it will soon stop supporting Android smartphones that do not have the latest version of Android 5.0 (Lollipop). Therefore, some Samsung models still do not support the latest versions.
These devices include seven Samsung smartphones released in 2011, 2012 and 2013. Devices include the Galaxy S2, Galaxy S3 Mini, Galaxy Core and Galaxy Ace 2.
Here we list the full list of devices that will soon experience the problem:
Samsung Galaxy Ace 2
Samsung Galaxy Core
Samsung Galaxy S2
Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini
Samsung Galaxy Trend II
Samsung Galaxy Trend Lite
Samsung Galaxy 2 case
All the devices mentioned above have been updated to Android 4. x, the latest major update to the Android OS.
Therefore, WhatsApp will not support these devices and will stop working on these phones after December 21, 2022.
So, if you are using any of the devices mentioned above, you need to get a newer phone that supports Android 5.
Here we suggest you already buy a phone running Android 12 or Android 13.
Not only that, but the list of smartphones that will no longer support WhatsApp includes 42 other smartphones.
Samsung and other companies like Apple, Sony, Archos, Grand, HTC, Lenovo, Huwaei, LG and Wiko will no longer support WhatsApp.
