Now our days, despite the fact that there are many ways you can use when trying to be in contact with a friend or family member, WhatsApp and SMS are the most prominent. Since it is more cost effective, WhatsApp is obviously the more preferable amongst the two.
The user can be in communication with loved ones at home or abroad as long as they’re connected to the internet.
As a budget offering, Nokia produced the Asha phones series. Nokia’s phone business was purchased by Microsoft who later announced they’ll focus more on producing Lumia Windows and other Nokia phone products by ending the Asha line.
Regardless, the support of the famous Whatsapp messaging application hasn’t been withdrawn from Asha phone.

Originally, Whatsapp was supported on Nokia S40 but the company announced that until June 30, 2017, they’ll keep on supporting the device. Although this is great news, the inevitable fact still remains; support will certainly be ended soon.
