Whatsapp 2017

If you can recall earlier this year, WhatsApp announced the discontinuation of its services for older smartphones by the end of 2016.
In a technology upgrade, WhatsApp planned to phase out compatibility
with older phones as they plan to focus on the mobile platforms that
vast majority of people use.

“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,” said a WhatsApp spokesperson.
The mobile platforms and their versions which would not be supported by WhatsApp in 2017 consist of the following:

  • Android : Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
    Windows : Windows Phone 7
    iPhone: 3GS/ iOS 6

Also Whatsapp App support will be extended for the following devices until June 2017:
– Blackberry 10 running on BBOS
– Nokia S40 running on Symbian S40

As per the list, the Android smartphone users need not worry as the app will be supported by most of the Android devices.
This means that iPhone users having phones running on iOS 6 or earlier versions will not be able to use the services of the app anymore. So you know what that means? endevour to get yourself a new smartphone device come 2017.
