KaiOS Technologies, maker of KaiOS, and Facebook, have announced that WhatsApp is now available for download in the KaiStore, on both 512MB and 256MB RAM devices.
In addition, from Q3 2019, most smart feature phones powered by KaiOS will have WhatsApp preinstalled from the factory. Facebook is already available on KaiOS phones in India, Africa, Europe, and APAC.
This July announcement of the platform-wide availability of these apps comes months after Reliance JioPhone and Nokia 8110 4G have had access to them.

A welcome development. Greater connectivity for all. Hurrah!
