WhatsApp is likely to stop working on several smartphones in 9 days – November 1. The Facebook-owned messaging app had recently announced that it would not be operable on older versions of Android and iOS, reports said. 

If this is true and you are blocked out of WhatsApp, then you will not be able to send or view messages, photos, or videos on your old smartphones. 

It is important to note that if you have a smartphone that supports Android OS 4.1 and above and iOS 10 and above then you will be the only one who will be able to use the messaging app.
