Millions of people depend on WhatsApp to communicate with their friends, loved ones and colleagues for work.

And in the next two weeks, those with older smartphones will not be able to use the app.

Affected users will need to either update their software or buy a new phone.

More than 40 different smartphone models are expected to be affected.

According to The Sun, for Android users, you’ll need to be running Android 4,1 or older and for iPhone users, you’ll need to be on iOS 10 or older.

A lot of popular Android phones will lose access, including the Samsung Galaxy S3 and the Huawei Ascend Mate.

For Apple, it’s an iPhone 4 or older.

And if you’ve never updated your iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus or iPhone SE (2016), you’ll lose access until you update.

The deadline for the update is 1 November, after which point WhatsApp will stop working.
