As every month the list of cell phones comes out in which it will no longer be compatible WhatsAppso it is a way to draw users’ attention to save their information and look for alternatives to continue communicating with their friends and family.
This mobile phone filter occurs because the application constantly updates, so some cell phones are left out due to their technical characteristics.
The references of mobile devices that have the operating system less than Android 4.0.3., and iPhones that have a version iOS 12 or earlier, are the ones that will be left out of the Meta platform, so the recommendation is to make a backup.

How to make a backup
In case the cell phone is on the previous list, it is best to make a backup to back up the information and not lose the chats or contacts that have not been saved. To do this, this is the process:
1. Open WhatsApp
2. Go to Settings
4. Open the ‘Chats’ option
4. Then select the Backup option
5. Click on back up now
6. Wait for the process to complete, which can take 30 minutes or so
7. The backup will start uploading to the Drive account associated with Google
With that, the data will be saved in the cloud and when you open a session on the new phone, all the information will be recovered, since accessing the account will automatically download the chats from the last backup made.
WhatsApp tests avatars
Just as they came to Facebook and Instagramthe avatars of Goal are already making their way into WhatsAppat least in its beta versions, while its performance is tested and bugs are eliminated.
These digital ‘I’s have two functions, at least for the messaging app. First of all, they can be used as profile photos for each user and also as a sticker to respond in chats.
On the latter, a special section will be enabled for them, where the characters adapt to different gestures and emotions, such as crying faces, love, surprise, happiness and others.
Although it has not been confirmed if finally these avatars will also have a utility within video calls, which is something that was leaked, but that is not available in the trial version for now.
Additionally, within WhatsApp’se will be able to create the character and also edit. It’s not clear whether those changes will affect the other apps in Goal or if it will be time to create one for each one.
