WhatsApp Update Download Available on Nokia Phones


WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps in the world. The app grew the most in recent years, which means that it is now one of the most widely used IM services in the world. However, due to this growing popularity, WhatsApp has also taken the liberty recently to cut support for outdated platforms and such. Thus, there are a lot of devices that have been blacklisted by WhatsApp, and they will no longer be receiving support for the app. If you’ve been keeping up with tech news, then you already know that some of the devices that are being cut from support pertain to the Nokia and Blackberry family.

On top of that, if you run Android 2.2 or older (although, why would you?), support for WhatsApp will also be cut. There is no way to remedy this, seeing as developers generally never revert to support apps again after they have shot down the opportunity once and for all. So, as mentioned before, there are a lot of older Nokia phones that are getting cut off from WhatsApp support. So how can one install WhatsApp on a Nokia phone? Keep reading to find out.

Upgrade, Upgrade, Upgrade

If you want to run WhatsApp on your Nokia device yet again, you have only two options: either get the old-timey Nokia S40, or get a newer Nokia smartphone from one of their new lines. There are three options on the market already that pertain to this category: the Nokia 3, the Nokia 5 and the Nokia 6. Choose one of these, or wait for the Nokia 8 and 9 to launch officially. If you’re willing to spend a bit more on a smartphone that performs well, we actually recommend the latter two options.
