Facebook owned leading instant messaging app WhatsApp has recently announced that some android and iOS users will no longer be able to access WhatsApp on their smartphones. In the recent notification, WhatsApp has stated that the company will stop providing the support for some outdated android and iOS versions of smartphones. 

Now just few days are left and WhatsApp will stop working on the following platforms: 

  • Android versions 2.3.7 and older.
  • iOS 8 and older.

The smartphones with above operating systems will not support the app from February 1, 2020. Also, the company said that the users having these older android and iOS operating systems “can no longer create new accounts, nor reverify existing accounts.” 

Moreover, WhatsApp is withdrawing the support for all Windows Phone operating systems from December 31, 2019. WhatsApp frequently rolls out updates on its platform to take care of the users’ convenience and provide a smooth and uninterrupted experience to its millions of users. 

But if your smartphone supports below operating systems and advanced than these operating systems, you don’t need to worry as WhatsApp will continue to provide support for these platforms.

  • Android running OS 4.0.3+
  • iPhone running iOS 9+

In today’s world, the importance of WhatsApp can’t be ignored as they provide effective messaging and calling services to large customer base across the globe. So older Android and iPhones users from all over the world will have to switch to a newer smartphone if they want to use WhatsApp in year 2020.
