Top 5 WhatsApp Drawbacks

While WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging apps, it does have its downsides.

which the developers have not fixed for several years. "Life" told about some of them.

On October 27, information appeared thatWhatsApp will be disabled on many smartphones. This is true, but only partially: the list of devices will include 43 models with Android OS version earlier than 4.1 or iOS version earlier than 10th. It will be possible to continue using the messenger even on “outdated” versions of the operating system, but this can lead to numerous problems. The list of devices includes: IPhone SE (2016), 6S, 6S Plus; Samsung Galaxy Trend Lite, Galaxy Trend II, Galaxy SII, Galaxy S3 mini, Galaxy Xcover 2, Galaxy Core and Galaxy Ace 2; ZTE Grand S Flex, ZTE V956, Grand X Quad V987, Grand Memo, etc. Requirements for devices can be viewed on the official website of the application.

The first problem that can be facedusers - the ability to block an account. This means that an unofficial application or an old version of the official one is installed on the smartphone. Moreover, your account may even be blocked forever if you do not switch to the official messenger.

Further - the accumulation of errors.This is due to the fact that the messenger works constantly, and the smartphone does not reboot. This can cause the application to crash and crash. If you notice errors with codes 413, 481, 491, 492, 505, 907, 910, 921, 927, 941, DF-DLA-15, then the only solution is to delete your Google account, restart your phone and create a new account.

It happens that WhatsApp does not work whenusing the mobile network. Here, the reason may lie both in the application itself and in the device (for example, a faulty SIM card, a module, incorrect operation of the firmware). Another option is a crash inside the messenger. To exclude the last option, you need to go to "Settings", and then to "Applications", click on the Google Play Market (or AppStore), and then on "Data transfer". After that you need to enable "Background Mode" and restart WhatsApp. Also, if the messenger does not allow sending a message, then the matter may be in the low speed of the Internet.

There are two problems with updating the app:lack of free space and error while loading. The first error numbers are 101, 498 and 919, and to solve it, just go to the "Storage" and select "Clear cache" there. Then you need to reboot your smartphone and check the amount of built-in memory. As for the second problem, errors with codes 403, 495, 504, 911, 920, 923, RPC errors, invalid package file, errors of unsuccessful download or installation have been encountered for more than a year. If the application is not automatically updated, you can download the APK file yourself from here. After downloading it, you just need to allow installation from the selected source in the "Settings".
