WhatsApp update – Latest news will bring joy to millions of phone users
WHATSAPP has continued to be one of the most popular apps on the planet but this latest update could boost things even further.
The Latest reports suggest that WhatsApp is now used by over 1.5 billion people across the planet earth.
However, a big new update looks set to boost its popularity even further with this app now available on more devices which hitherto, was not applicable.
According to reports, KaiOS powers millions of feature phones across the world including some of the latest Nokia call makers. Until now, it wasn’t possible to access WhatsApp from these phones but that’s just changed.
The most important news is that WhatsApp for iPhone could overtake Android with this new feature.
Beginning from today, more KaiOS owners will be able to download this app with the team behind the service saying that WhatsApp will now reach millions of new users across Africa, Europe, North America, Southeast Asia, Latin America and all parts of the globe.
They said: “We’re thrilled to bring WhatsApp to the KaiOS platform and extend such an important means of communication to a brand new demographic,” said Sebastien Codeville, the CEO of KaiOS Technologies.
“We are striving to make the internet and digital services accessible for everyone and offering WhatsApp on affordable smart feature phones is a giant leap towards this goal. We can’t wait to see the next billion users connect in meaningful ways with their loved ones, communities, and others across the world.”
WhatsApp was first launched on the KaiOS-powered JioPhone in India in September of 2018 but it will slowly start rolling out to more phones including the hugely popular Nokia 8110 of the series NNokia.
Even though the system is not as popular as Apple iOS or Google Android, KaiOS still powers more than 100 million devices shipped worldwide, in over 100 countries of the world.
The KaiOS platform enables a new category of devices that require limited memory, while still offering a rich user experience to the many people around the world that is using it.
