WhatsApp Will Stop Supporting The Phones Below This Week

WhatsApp is used by billions of people every single day, but the popular app is set to stop working on several popular smartphones this week.

The app will stop working on Windows smartphones on December 31.

WhatsApp said: “You’ll no longer be able to use all Windows Phone operating systems after December 31, 2019, and WhatsApp might not be available in the Microsoft Store after July 1, 2019.”

And the end of support doesn’t end there – WhatsApp will also stop working on several Android smartphones and iPhones in the coming months.

From February 1, people using Android versions 2.3.7 and older will no longer be able to create new accounts, or reverify existing accounts.

Meanwhile, iPhones running on iOS 8 and older will also stop being able to create new accounts or reverify existing accounts from February 1.

If you have a Windows smartphone, and don’t want to lose all your chats on December 31, thankfully there’s a fairly simple way to save your chat history.

 

Open the chat you wish to export, and tap on Group Info.

Scroll down and tap ‘Export Chat’. You’ll then be given the option to download the chat with or without media – note the attaching media will generate a larger chat archive.

Thank you.
