WhatsApp update support for OS versions like Windows Phone 7, Android 2.1, Android 2.2 and iOS 6 was closed in 2016.

WhatsApp is about to stop working on a range of old smartphones, meaning owners will have to buy newer gadgets if they want to continue using the chat app to the best of its capabilities. So if you're using the popular messaging app for you older iPhone or Android smartphone, you may have to find an alternative messaging service.

About 70% of smartphones sold at the time had operating systems offered by BlackBerry and Nokia, the company explained.

WhatsApp listed the devices that no longer support the device. While the relief is that most users in India use smartphones with Android operating systems, but the number of people using Windows and BlackBerry operating systems is also good. The mobile messaging app that launched a series of new features in the year 2017, is expected to keep-up the momentum by adding a range of mind-blowing features to the app. It will do the same for Nokia S40 handsets on December 31 2018 and then devices running Android 2.3.7 and older after 1 February, 2020. Microsoft officially ended support for Windows Phone 8.0, while Blackberry has moved from the Blackberry OS to Android after handing over the reigns to TCL Communications.
