Talking about the closure of WhatsApp Supports in old phones, it is said that the company does not develop new features for these platforms, due to which some of its features stop functioning automatically.

Mobile operating systems offered by Google and Apple - which account for over 90 percent of sales today - were on less than 25 percent of mobile devices sold at the time. The company, in its blog post, has updated that the company would provide support for security patches and bug fixes for Windows Phone OS till the mentioned date. Its latest decision can be seen aligned with Microsoft's decision to end support for their operating system.

WhatsApp has announced that it would no longer provide any assistance for Windows OS starting December 31, 2019.

The best messaging app for Windows phones is about to go dark as well, and this will clearly be one major hit for everyone planning to stick with Microsoft's mobile operating system for a little longer.

Whatsapp will also stop working on Android versions 2.3.7 and older after February 1, 2020 and iPhone iOS 7 and older after February 1, 2020.
