Starting October 24, 2023, some older smartphones will no longer be able to use WhatsApp. What should those affected do now?
Can you no longer use WhatsApp as of October?
The vast majority of users can continue to use WhatsApp as usual after October 2023. Only a very small number of mobile phone owners will need to take action soon. WhatsApp has announced that starting from October 24, 2023, support for smartphones running Android versions older than 5.0 will be discontinued. This means that anyone with a smartphone that does not have at least Android 5.0 will not be able to use WhatsApp from October 24. A message will then appear in the app stating that you need to update to continue using WhatsApp. But what if that is not possible?
