A prevalent messaging app WhatsApp announced to withdraw support for all smartphones running on Windows operating systems soon and would stop working on Windows phone after December 2019.
The company has also warned the Windows phone users that some of the features of the messaging app may stop working anytime for them.
“Because we will no longer actively develop for these platforms, some features may stop functioning at any time,” the company issued the statement in a blog post,
“It’s been a long time since the WhatsApp app for Windows Phones received a significant update, and the app was actually still using the old Metro design language that made its debut on Windows Phone 7.”
Windows phones users are unable to use many popular apps for the last six months which includes Instagram, Facebook, and Facebook Messenger.
It isn’t just Windows phones that WhatsApp is cutting support for; the app will also not support Android versions 2.37, older iOS 7 after February 1, 2020.
