WhatsApp is finalizing a great update that is called to revolutionize its messaging service as we know it. However, the innovations will have a price: WhatApp will stop working on millions of mobile phones .
This is a change that the application has described as "necessary" to ensure the safety of users , who also recommends updating mobile phones to the latest available version of the operating system.
"Some of the benefits will stop working at any time after January 31," WhatsApp warns, seeking to support operating systems that it will consider obsolete.
Operating systems in which "new accounts can no longer be created or existing accounts verified", something that is done by sending calls or SMS, and that de facto implies the death of WhatsApp for millions of mobiles throughout the world
Below we show you a complete list of mobile phones in which WhatsApp will stop working.
IPhone models on which WhatsApp will not work
All iPhone models that use an iOS 8 or earlier operating system will run out of WhatsApp in a few days.
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus : You can continue using WhatsApp as long as you upgrade to the iOS 9 version.
iPhone 5, iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c : You can continue using WhatsApp as long as you upgrade to the iOS 9 version.
iPhone4S : Only those capable of updating to iOS 9 can continue using WhatsApp.
iPhone 4 and earlier models : The inability to update the operating system will leave these terminals obsolete to use WhatsApp.
Android models where WhatsApp will not work
As with the terminals manufactured by Apple, WhatsApp will stop working on numerous Android terminals .
Specifically, all those terminals that have an Android operating system prior to version 4.0.3 - known as Ice Cram Sandwich - can no longer use WhatsApp.
That is, all Android phones that have an Android 2.3.7 operating system - known as Gingerbread - or earlier will be affected.
" These phones have been an important part of our history but they no longer offer the necessary capabilities to incorporate the new features of our app," they say.
Also, the developers of the application, which is owned by Facebook , argue that "it is a difficult decision to make but the right one in order to provide people with the best way to stay in touch with their friends, family and loved ones".
What changes in WhatsApp justify the obsolescence of these terminals?
Although it is possible that WhatsApp developers keep a surprise or an ace in their sleeve , the application has announced a battery of benefits .
In total it is a list of seven new features that includes: an Internet browser within WhatsApp , an advanced search system in conversations, the possibility of listening to voice notes without entering the message, identifying profiles with a QR code, a new dark mode for battery saving, the function of self-destructing messages and a collection of photographic filters - similar to those that exist on Instagram - integrated into WhatsApp .
