Whatsapp is the most popular digital communication app in the world right now. It is continuously getting updates and new features to facilitate its users to a larger extent. Whatsapp developers are keeping in mind that everyone today is rushing towards the latest platforms, thus they are adding new features that will not be compatible with older versions of smartphones. With the end of 2019, Whatsapp official page stated that they are dropping support for some older platforms and this means some of the smartphone users will not be able to use Whatsapp
According to Whatsapp officials, this app will no longer support the OS platform and older version of IOS and Android. According to recent news, Microsoft has dropped support for Windows phone and therefore Whatsapp has announced that they will no longer support Windows Phone devices form January 1, 2020. Thus, if you are a Windows phone user, then make sure to get the latest Android mobile if you are really a fan of Whatsapp and don’t want to miss it.
The same policy is applicable for some older version Android and IOS. Android devices running with the Android 2.3.7 platform will not support Whatsapp from Feb 1, 2020. Likewise, all IOS devices having version IOS 8 will no longer support Whatsapp. Therefore if you are using these versions of smartphones than its time to upgrade them if you want to enjoy Whatsapp features.
Phones with WhatsApp
Don’t get panic with the news. As per our knowledge window phones are so rare in public and they are already dead for technical support of many apps and features. The majority of developers are withdrawing support of their apps from Windows phones. The same effect goes for Android 2.3.7 and IOS 8.
With advancing technology every user upgrades their phone within a year or two so it is rarely possible that there will be a majority of people with these older versions of phones. If you have got your Android device two years ago it is possible that you have Android 8.0 Oreo, which is perfectly compatible with Whatsapp. Devices with IOS 8 include iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S and you can use Whatsapp on iPhone 4 series as they got the last update like iOS 9.
In conclusion, it is possible you have the most recent version of Android and ios even if you don’t update your software regularly you will be able to enjoy Whatsapp. If you have changed your phone in 2019 than just enjoy using without any worries for the next 5 years. Thus, if you are using a Windows phone, it’s the right time to switch to the new model of Android/ IOS. If you want to keep using Whatsapp and using Android 2.3.7 or iPhone with iOS 8 or older than you must upgrade before 2019 end.
