Whatsapp had announced sometime back that the company will stop supporting few smartphone models by the end of 2016. Now that 2016 is drawing to an end, here is the list of phone users that’ll need to upgrade to continue using the app.
– Android : Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
– Windows : Windows Phone 7
– iPhone: 3GS/ iOS 6
However, the company also said that the support for the following models will still be available until June 2017.
– Blackberry 10 running on BBOS
– Nokia S40 running on Symbian S40
Android smartphone users needn’t worry too much as most Android devices will be supported however, if you are an iPhone user on iOS 6 or earlier versions, you’ll have to upgrade.
According to reports, Whatsapp spokesperson said, “While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they do not offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future.”
