At the beginning of February 2020, some devices will not be able to use the most loved and most used application of all times, WhatsApp, across the globe. Whatsapp Says No To These Smartphones From 2020.
This Facebook-owned messaging app, WhatsApp, had given a prior warning to the devices operating on an older version of Android and iOS since they don’t support WhatsApp. So, for those who failed to upgrade their phones, WhatsApp will become a distant non-usable entity.
WhatsApp is friendly with the iOS devices running OS 9+ and Android devices running OS 4.0.3+. Also, some rare phones running Kai OS 2.5.1+. The very latest report suggests that the devices not running these operating systems will not benefit from WhatsApp anymore.
WhatsApp is not going to be friendly with Android devices running OS 2.3.7 and older, iOS devices running OS 8 and older, also some rare phones featuring Windows OS.
Earlier, you could verify your smartphone with WhatsApp and start using the application instantly. But, this will not happen this time! You will not be able to create new accounts using older versions of operating systems, neither will you be able to verify your existing accounts after the given deadline!
Tiff With Microsoft:
From December 31, 2019, the Facebook-owned messaging application has withdrawn support for all Windows phones. Also, it ended support with its Windows 10 Mobile OS the very same day.
