WhatsApp will stop working on millions of phones from today (November 1).
The Facebook-owned messaging service is set to stop working on older versions of both iOS and Android systems.
If you have an older system, you may need to update it to continue using WhatsApp - and some people may need to update their entire phones to continue with the app.
If you're using an iPhone 6, for example, you should be able to update, but iPhone 4 users will need to get a new phone.
As reported by Metro, see below a full list of smartphones that WhatsApp will stop supporting from today:
The iPhone SE (2016), 6S and 6S Plus. Those using these phones will need to to iOS 15 to continue to support WhatsApp.
Older iPhones, including iPhone 4S, cannot be updated past iOS 10 and will lose access.
