Recall that Legit.ng earlier reported that WhatsApp announced that it would stop working on all Windows smartphones as from December 2019. According to Statista, Windows Phone's market share (in the UK) has dropped to just above 0.5%, but, to be fair, it was never that high to begin with.

Following the development, Whatsapp says that the last update for the platform will be issued in June.

"Because we will no longer actively develop for these platforms, some features may stop functioning at any time".

The support for these devices will end after December 31, 2019 and will be closely followed by Android versions 2.3.7 or iPhone's running anything older than iOS 7 - with that block coming into force from February 1, 2020.

WhatsApp users may be forced to get a new phone to get their messages as the company has put in place more blocks.

For reference, the latest OS for these phones is Android 9 and iOS 12. Whatsapp is encouraging users to shift to a newer technological by purchasing phones which can be up to date with futuristic technical updates. It is one of the most anticipated features of all time that could also benefit users in many ways, including reducing strain on eyes while using the app in the dark and extending battery life.
