WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps and people from all around the world use it. The application can be downloaded on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices and it is available for free. However, not all phones will be able to use WhatsApp in the future.
For example, Nokia Asha users won’t receive WhatsApp support after December 31, 2018. In fact, all Nokia S40 phones won’t support WhatsApp after that date, which marks the end of the year. The Nokia Series 40 Compatible Devices are Nokia Asha 201, 205, 210, 230, 300, 302, 303, 305, 306, 308, 309, 310, 500 to 503, Nokia 301 Single and Dual SIM Chat Edition, Nokia 206 Single and Dual SIM devices and Nokia 208 and 515 which come with preinstalled WhatsApp.
How to install WhatsApp on a Nokia Asha phone
If you own a Nokia Asha device, it might be time to download WhatsApp before it is too late. First of all you should make sure that your device is supported. Then, open the Internet Browser on your phone and access this link https://www.whatsapp.com/s40/. Choose Download Now and follow all the instructions that appear on screen. When you are done you will have WhatsApp installed on your phone.
Since WhatsApp still supports your device, this means that its developers will continue to update it so there shouldn’t be any security issues. Make sure that you install the most version of the application on your mobile phone.
Things will become difficult at the end of the year, when developers will stop supporting WhatsApp for Nokia Asha phones. This app remains one of the most effective ways to communicate and users should find an alternative for it. Luckily for you, there are many other apps available.
