Over the last few months, WhatsApp has been rolling out an array of new features, such as Joinable Calls, disappearing messages, and stickers.

On November 1, the social media app will no longer be available for many of the older models of smartphones, specifically those with an operating platform equal or below iOS 9 for iPhone, and equal or lesser than Android 4.0.3.

Since they don’t have the capability to support updates, these devices won’t be able to receive support from the app. Facebook said that the move was being made in order to provide best-in-class service to its users.

It was also recommended that users select Android phones running OS4.1 and higher — or iPhones running iOS 10, or both.

Here’s the complete list of devices affected by this change:
