WhatsApp Stops Working on 49 smartphones from December 31

WhatsApp has decided to pull out its support from as many as 49 smartphone models starting from December 31. If your mobile device is on this list, you will need to upgrade to a newer model in order to continue using the instant messaging application.

WhatsApp will stop working on devices from a variety of manufacturers, including Apple and Samsung. This implies that beyond the specified date, owners of such phones will no longer be able to get updates from WhatsApp, including new features and security patches, and eventually the service will cease to function for them.

It is to be noted that most of the devices mentioned in the list are older and probably only used by a very small number of individuals. Thus, the majority of smartphone users worldwide shouldn’t be concerned about the support termination.
