WhatsApp will Stop Working on these Phones in 2023


Due to the fact that older device frequencies are no longer supported by WhatsApp, the software will stop functioning properly on some of the devices beginning on January 1, 2023. The announcement may come as a surprise to consumers. The announcement came from the firm that on December 31, WhatsApp will no longer function on 49 different devices, which is a significant number. It means that the owners of the gadget will either have to upgrade to a new handset or give up the messaging app permanently, neither of which are good options. The situation is unfortunate.

This is to be expected given that WhatsApp, like many other apps, often issues updates, and newer handsets are unable to keep up with the newer versions. On October 24, WhatsApp functionality was removed from iPhones running iOS 10 and iOS 11 software versions. This time, access to the messaging app will be removed from iPhones as well as a large number of Android phones.


The list of cell phones that are affected by this issue may be found below. There are a total of 49 devices in this assortment.
