Facebook-owned messaging app WhatsApp has reportedly announced that in two months, the app will stop working on several smartphones.  If this happens, users will not be able to view their messages, photos, or videos from November 1 as WhatsApp will stop supporting the old smartphones. 

In its announcement, WhatsApp has said that the app will not be supporting older versions of both Android and iOS. Anyone who has a phone supporting Android OS 4.1 and above and iOS 10 and above will be the only ones who will be able to use WhatsApp. 

If you are utilising a smartphone older than 2011 then it is important for them to get an upgrade to keep using WhatsApp. The last date for doing the needful is set at November 1. 

All the Android and iOS users can also check the version of the software that they are using via accessing the mobile phone settings.
