WhatsApp, the beloved and free messaging system that enables users to exchange text, video and audio messages is now available on Java-running mobiles. The messaging app was previously only available to PCs, Android-based devices and iOS-based devices, but it has recently been released for devices that simply run Java and do not run the Android, iOS or Windows operating systems.

The Java app is available for several types of platforms whether they are mobiles, tablets or PCs and many types of OSs. Yes, there are many other types of operating systems for a wide array of devices out there besides Android and iOS and one of those, that is obsolete, but still widely used around the world is the Symbian OS.

If you happen to own a device that runs the Symbian OS or a different operating system and you really want to use WhatsApp, all you have to do is to make sure that you’ve installed a java platform on it.

Moreover, it is absolutely essential that you first download the WhatsApp version for Java directly on you PC and only afterwards you can download it on a phone.

However, users of very old and obsolete devices should know that Java may not be able to develop platforms for those devices in the near feature and they should probably consider upgrading to a better phone that is running one of the major operating systems like Android, iOS or the Windows versions for mobiles.

The new WhatsApp version for Java is available for free and can be downloaded from the official WhatsApp site, and it would also be a good idea to check the site regularly and see if any other WhatsApp java updates are available.

If the app cannot be installed on your device because it is too old or simply not compatible, there are many other alternatives for you such as the Qute Messenger or the Kik Messenger.
