WhatsApp Still Offers Support For Nokia Asha Phones

While there are a plethora of communications options to choose from, most people tend to go with SMS and WhatsApp. Of course, WhatsApp is still one of the more preferable options because of its cost-effectiveness.

If you have an Internet connection, you can talk with loved ones even if they’re thousands of miles away. 

What Nokia Asha Devices Can Support WhatsApp

Nokia produces the Asha lines of phones as a budget phone. However, Microsoft bought the mobile device side of Nokia and, shortly after that, ended the Asha line to put attention more on developing Lumia Windows Phones and the other Nokia phone-related products.  And, great news, WhatsApp still offers support for its messaging application on the phone. 

Initially, WhatsApp supported the Nokia S40 and would continue doing so until June 2017.  This is good news, but it stands to reason that support could eventually be terminated. WhatsApp still offers support for various Nokia devices like the Asha line including but not limited to:

  • 201
  • 230 Single and Dual SIM
  • 300
  • 302
  • 303
  • 305
  • 306
  • 500
  • 501
