Reliance JioPhone likely to get WhatsApp soon

Reliance JioPhone, which run on KaiOS, a Linux-based light mobile Operating System (OS), may soon get WhatsApp.

According to Wabetainfo.com, a fan site that tests new WhatsApp features early, as of February 2018 KaiOS Technologies have acquired many new partners, including Facebook that also owns the popular messaging platform. This could indicate that the smart feature phone from Reliance Jio is readying to provide the WhatsApp messaging app to its users. Reliance JioPhone users can currently download the Facebook app on the phone. "The highly-coveted social media app has made its way to KaiOS-powered feature phones. This partnership supports access to Facebook via a native KaiOS app, thus allowing more users to connect with their friends and families," KaiOS wrote in a blog post last month.
