Truth be told, Nokia Asha phones are not being made anymore. However, there are still some people that prefer them. What these people need to do is get the latest WhatsApp update as soon as possible, mostly because of all the fixes and the security updates.
What Nokia Asha devices are supported by WhatsApp?
Microsoft bought Nokia in 2013. Many people didn’t think high of Nokia Asha, and because of some difficulties, they stopped upgrading them. They moved next to the Lumia series and some other phones that had the Nokia signature. Even in 2018 we got a new phone, Nokia 1.
So Nokia Asha devices still support this app. Don’t you worry, there are many devices that still enjoy this app, from 230 single SIM, to 230 Dual Sim.
However, you should keep In mind that, by the end of the year, Nokia S40 will no longer support WhatsApp, so make sure you get it as soon as possible.
Don’t forget to update it as soon as possible
The app keeps evolving, and soon it will not be compatible with older phones, which means that soon it will no longer be available for Nokia S40 – starting with the 31st of December and other phones – starting 2020. Form February 1st, 2020, those phones that run on Android versions that are older than 2.3.7 will no longer be able to support WhatsApp. We’re also talking about iPhones that run on iOS 7 and older.
It’s true, it might not be a bad idea to change your phone, but up until then, don’t forget to update the new version of WhatsApp. You don’t want to have a phone that apps don’t want to support anymore.
It might not be a bad idea to change your phone soon.
