WhatsApp is about to pull the plug on smart devices running older versions of Android, iphone, and Windows Phone. Nonetheless, the end of support by WhatsApp is unlikely to impact many users considering that the adjustment is applicable just to smartphones running Android 2.2 Froyo, iOS 6, as well as Windows Phone 7 (and older variations of the three running systems). Nonetheless, in case you are undoubtedly making use of gadgets powered by these OSes, come 2017, you will be incapable to utilize WhatsApp on them.
Back in February, WhatsApp revealed it would end assistance for older smartphone os in order to make sure all platforms had feature parity. WhatsApp in a post had actually said older operating systems did not “provide the sort of abilities we need to expand our application’s attributes in the future.”

So unless you have an Android smart device that was released over 5 years earlier, you need to be risk-free. As for apple iphone customers, the only iPhone not to obtain iOS 7 is the apple iphone 3GS, which was released back in 2009.
In February, Facebook-owned WhatsApp had stated it was a difficult choice for it to take, nevertheless, felt that it was the “best one in order to give individuals much better means to communicate with good friends, family, and loved ones utilizing WhatsApp.” It together with had actually recommended WhatsApp individuals to change to a newer Android, apple iphone, or Windows Phone smart device if they plan to proceed using the instantaneous messaging solution in 2017.
The choice does indeed make sense, as WhatsApp like most instant messaging solutions is a cross-platform offering, permitting individuals on different os to chat with each other. More recent functions introduced in the recent previous include voice calling and also video calling, and such attributes could very well tire the capabilities of older devices and running systems.
Especially nonetheless, WhatsApp last month gave customers of BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10 OS, Nokia S40, and Nokia Symbian S60 gadgets a respite. The company stated it will continue to support these systems till June 2017.
Regrettably, this respite does not extend to gadgets running Android 2.2 Froyo and older versions, Windows Phone 7 and also older versions, as well as iphone 6 and older versions. Readers need to treat this post as a reminder that support for older devices will discontinue at the end of 2016.
