As of November 1, Facebook’s proprietary platforms are Android OS 4.1, Apple iOS 10, and Kios 2.5.1. It will stop working on phones running on systems older than. All these phones will not be compatible with WhatsApp and will be incompatible with the application. If this includes your device, you will need to upgrade to a newer phone model that has the company’s operating system. However, the company has also introduced a new feature, “one of the most requested features,” according to the blog post, which is useful in allowing users to migrate their chats when switching from iOS to a Samsung device running Android.
“For starters, this feature is available on any Samsung device with Android 10 or higher and will soon be available on more Android devices,” WhatsApp said. The migration should also be completed during the initial setup of the new phone, as WhatsApp says: “Your new Android device must be factory new or reset to factory settings.” Users will need to perform a factory reset if they already have a device. “This is just the beginning,” WhatsApp said in a blog post. “We look forward to making this option available for more people to switch to the platform of their choice and allow them to chat safely.”
