As every year, in 2020 WhatsApp will no longer support some older devices which, therefore, are not able to satisfy the new features offered by the messaging application. Here is the list of devices that will lose WhatsApp support from 2020.
There is no doubt that WhatsApp is the most widely used instant messaging application worldwide. The WhatsApp team continuously integrates new features that are often "stolen" from sister apps, especially Instagram, to optimize the user experience, whether you use it to communicate with friends and family or for work. that's why it's important to know that, starting in 2020, WhatsApp will no longer support certain devices.
The company announced on its blog that on the following platforms it will no longer be possible to create a new account or verify an existing account:
- Android 2.3.7 Gingerbread and earlier versions (as of February 1, 2020)
- iOS 8 and earlier (as of February 1, 2020).
This means that, theoretically, it will still be possible to continue using the application (if you already have an account), but in a limited way, as some features may stop working at any time. The subject much worse for those who use the operating system known as Windows Phone. As of January 1, 2020, Windows Phone will no longer receive any support from WhatsApp.
Do you need to worry or is your smartphone running on a higher version?
