WhatsApp had announced the discontinuation of its services for older smartphones by the end of 2016, earlier this year.

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

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.

iPhone users having phones running on iOS 6 or earlier versions will not be able to use the services of the app anymore.
