México CITY.- As technology advances, some devices are left behind. This is the case of thousands of cell phones around the world that will soon be left without access to WhatsApp the popular instant messaging application.

Starting next April 1, these devices will no longer be able to use the platform due to their outdated operating systems.

Among the operating systems that will no longer be compatible with WhatsApp There are Android 5 Lollipop or earlier versions, as well as iOS 12 or earlier versions. This means that users who have devices with these operating systems will not be able to receive calls or send messages through this app.

The reason for this measure is that these operating systems do not meet the minimum requirements to support key functions of WhatsApp, such as artificial intelligence or the tool to create stickers without the need for additional programs. This lack of compatibility makes the devices that use them obsolete and, as a result, users will be forced to change smartphones if they want to continue using this app.


Here is the list of cell phones without WhatsApp

Below is a list of some of the mobile phone models that will no longer have support for WhatsApp starting April 1:
