Will this WhatsApp shutdown affect Indian phones?

However, if your Android phone has a 4.1 operating system or lower-level software, then it will not support WhatsApp. Similarly, this application will not run on iPhones with iOS 9 or lower. In that case, you either need to update the phone or buy a new phone. Note that last November, WhatsApp was blocked for a select few phones.
