WhatsApp: These phones will no longer be compatible with the app!

In France, more than 30 million people use Whatsapp. This messaging app has been very useful for talking with people abroad, and has been very successful for years. But some loyal users will soon be deprived of their favorite app. The reason is simple: the phones they are using are outdated and don’t allow the app to run once updates are made.

No more Whatsapp for Apple?

Don’t panic, if you have a recent iPhone, you will have no problem using Whatsapp. This is for older Apple-branded phones. In fact, as we learned from Buzz Ezine, future updates made to Whatsapp will make it impossible for devices running iOS 10 and 11 to use the app.. This is for the lower-generation iPhone 5s or SE. For all the people who have these phones, Whatsapp is over.

However, if you have a newer iPhone, you may face some difficulty in using Whatsapp. What do you do in this case? You need to check that the iPhone updates are effective. We recommend that you have, at least, iOS 12 to ensure the smooth running of the app. Otherwise, check that the app itself is not out of date. To do this, go to the App Store to update it.

No ads are declared on the side of the Android phone. A priori, all phones can use Whatsapp in the future. Good news for Android phone fans facing Apple fans who swear by the iPhone.

Big news is planned on Whatsapp

Today’s Internet users are interfering in protecting their privacy. Whatsapp is going in this direction with the news. If you want to log in, but not appear online, this is possible. You can even mean that you are busy, without actually being busy. This is a great step forward for all those who use WhatsApp regularly, but don’t necessarily want to talk to them. This can be the case of people who use the app for work and then are online but not available. We then feel less social pressure and waste less time responding to people out of simple politeness or fear of being offended (because they see us online).

But the new option that has to come, according to The Verge, that is likely to please is next. The developers are currently developing an option that will allow you to leave a secret combination. Today, when you leave a group, a message appears to let others know that you have decided to leave. In the future, no messages will be sent. For all those people who are tired of family and workgroups, but don’t want to offend other members, this is clearly a great step forward.

More screenshots on the app?

As you know, it is possible to send images on WhatsApp that can only be seen for a few seconds. However, for greater confidentiality and security, the developers are currently considering the idea of ​​not allowing people who receive these images to take screenshots. After all, if the user decided not to send the photo in the classic way, then this is for a reason. This option is already present in other applications. On Grindr, a dating app for men, it is possible to send “ephemeral photos” that the recipient cannot take. In order to protect everyone’s privacy.

If these novelties see the light of day, WhatsApp will most likely gain new users. You may not know it, but it is also possible to put stories on the app. It is not enough to convert WhatsApp to the new Instagram, far from it. The main task of the application is to allow us to communicate easily and quickly. With people in France or abroad.
