Now, as 2020 approaches, WhatsApp has released a list of more phones that will drop support for WhatsApp once the calendar turns around.
The recent update to the WhatsApp support page has listed a few platforms that will stop getting updates and won’t run WhatsApp. The prime platforms among these are Android and iOS, and its bad news for those using older handsets. From February 1, 2020, all Android phones running on Android 2.3.7 won’t be able to run WhatsApp. That means no more updates and no more sending or receiving messages through the app.
And iOS devices are also not left behind. WhatsApp says that all iPhones on iOS 8 and older will stop supporting its service from February 1, 2020. Users of these iPhone models have already lost the ability to make new accounts on these devices from a long time and now, they won’t be able to use the app anymore.
