December 31 is the last day: WhatsApp, for some users, will stop working in the New Year

WhatsApp has been gradually phasing out support for various mobile platforms.

For iOS users, there is still some time left, but not more than a couple of months left. The Facebook-owned instant messaging service provider will ditch support for handsets running older operating systems by 2020.

Apple releases first iOS 13.3 developer beta

From February 1, 2020, any Phone running iOS 8 or older will no longer be supported. ‘On iOS 8, you can no longer create new accounts or re-verify existing accounts,’ the company said in a blog post.


From February 1, 2020, WhatsApp will not work on any Android device running version 2.3.7 or older .

However, all people using smartphones running a Windows operating system have just one more day of WhatsApp use left – December 31, 2019. The website state: “WhatsApp will no longer support Windows Phone operating systems after December 31, 2019, and the app might not be available on the Microsoft Store after July 1, 2019.”


In a previous post, WhatsApp had said: ‘This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp.’
