WhatsApp will stop working on millions of old smartphones around the world. Because the company has decided to withdraw support from these smartphones. Not all Windows Phone users will be able to use WhatsApp after 31 December 2019. This information was given by Facebook, the owner of WhatsApp. From February 1, 2020, any iPhone running iOS 8 or older will not be supported by WhatsApp. Apart from this, the same will happen with Android smartphones running on 2.3.7 or earlier.

WhatsApp gave all this information in his blog. Apart from this, all this information is also available on the Frequent Asked Question (FAQ) page. WhatsApp company said, "Users of these operating systems are not able to create a new WhatsApp account before and are not even preparing the ability to verify the existing account."

WhatsApp will stop supporting Windows phones from December 31, 2019. This month, Microsoft will also stop supporting Windows 10 Mobile OS.

Remember that Facebook bought WhatsApp in 2014 for $ 19 billion. The company's objective was that this messaging platform could be integrated with its other services such as Messenger and Instagram.

Remember that Facebook's instant messaging app WhatsApp rolled out a new update for Android users this month. With the new update of WhatsApp, users have got the call waiting point. As the name shows, when the user is speaking on a call on WhatsApp, they will get an warning for the second call on WhatsApp. Instead of dividing the second incoming WhatsApp call now automatically, the user will also see two options, the first Decline and the second End & Accept, with the user receiving the alert.
