WhatsApp is the best suggestion when it comes to messaging applications, as it’s used by a large number of people (1 billion) from all over the world and they’re convincing their friends to join and chat with them. WhatsApp was released for six major operating systems, but since 2015, the developers started to focus more on Android and iOS, bringing new features for them, and, after their successful implementation, versions of other operating systems followed. This year, WhatsApp has announced that the Symbian version will no longer be supported by the end of 2016, and this will also happen with BlackBerry and older versions of Android and iOS. But until then, Nokia Asha users will be able to install new updates.

So, the latest update for Nokia Asha and Symbian Phones (S40/S60) is 2.16.38 and the SIS files can be downloaded from the internet. Therefore, the must be careful from which website they downloading them in case they don’t go to and download the update from there. It’s important to update this application from time to time, because its performance is improved, although no new features are added.

Unfortunately, users of the aforementioned operating systems will never be able to make voice calls, and the latest features that are available for Android and iOS will never come to Symbian 40 and 60, so if you’re not willing to ditch your device soon, you will be stuck with an application that will no longer get updates and it’s a shame. However, by installing WhatsApp 2.16.38, you will “feel” the small changes in terms of performance and you will see that the application runs better.

In order to install WhatsApp 2.16.38 on your device, you must have own one of these models: Asha 200, 201, 202, 203, 205, 210, 230, 300, 303, 305, 306, 308, 309, 310, 311, 500, 501, 502, 503, Nokia 206, Nokia 207, Nokia 208 or Nokia 301.
