The update is for all KaiOS devices that come with up to 512GB of RAM and have updated to the latest WhatsApp version 2.2110.41. This includes the famous JioPhone 4G feature phone and Nokia 8110 in India, among many other options.

Matt Idema, COO of WhatsApp, in a statement said, “People are relying on WhatsApp now more than ever to communicate and stay in touch with their loved ones. We want to support communities that are on lighter operating systems in many places around the world. Bringing WhatsApp voice calls to KaiOS-enabled devices helps us connect the world privately through a service that is simple, reliable and accessible to everyone – no matter what kind of mobile device they’re using.”

To recall, WhatsApp was introduced on KaiOS devices back in 2019 to provide everyone with an opportunity to use the app. This is mainly applicable in emerging markets and lets even the underprivileged people access the arguably popular messaging app.

Since then, the app has provided people with a number of ways of conversing with others. This includes messaging, voice notes, and even expressing through media.

It is further revealed that WhatsApp has become a popular non-system app on KaiOS-based devices with the highest monthly active users (MAU) worldwide.
