Xiaomi acknowledges 'WhatsApp Obsolete' issue, here is a fix to resolve it

Posted January 19, 2018

WhatsApp now lets iOS users watch YouTube videos directly inside the chat interface with version 2.18.11. The problem is that a beta version of WhatsApp was recently placed on the Mi App Store, which got updated automatically on the smartphones. Please go to the Google Play Store to download the latest version.

A few days ago, several Xiaomi users across the country were reporting a bug related to WhatsApp that rendered the popular messaging app useless on their devices. Now, Xiaomi has acknowledged the WhatsApp Obsolete error.

WhatsApp became obsolete on January 13, 2018.

The new update, which will be rolling out in the Apple phones on Thursday, will now allow the user to listen and watch videos from YouTube without switching apps.

For the last few days, numerous Xiaomi smartphone users were complaining about an unexpected error in their devices.

Xiaomi in a statement has said that this issue was caused due to a beta version of WhatsApp that was pushed on their Mi App Store which is what some users updated to.

Xiaomi provided the following statement to Gadgets 360, "A few Xiaomi users reported an issue with WhatsApp on their smartphones". The company has asked users to update the app to fix the obsolete issue. "We apologise for any inconvenience faced by our Mi Fans, and promise to be more vigilant going forward", it added. The company owned up to the mistake saying the issue occurred after the company rolled out a beta version on Mi App Store. "It was a problem with how our app is distributed, which is not under our control", said a company spokesperson.

This is probably the first time a feature has been released only for iOS users.
