From time to time, the Facebook-owned app does update its software requirements for supported operating systems. Starting from November 1, WhatsApp will work only on smartphones running on Android OS 4.1 and above, iOS 10 and above, and phones running on KaiOS 2.5.1 and above. These include the JioPhone and JioPhone 2.

Just before we check out the list of affected smartphones, we do advice you to go to your phone's 'Settings', locate 'About Phone' and then update your phone to the latest operating system. 

However, for very old smartphones, you might check and won't find new updates available. For those kind of device, the only option is to check to see if your smartphone is running on OS below Android 4.1 or iOS 10. Or you can just scroll through the list to see if your device is affected. If you fall in this category, then you will have to upgrade to a new smartphone to be able to use WhastApp.
