WABetaInfo, which provides information about WhatsApp, announced that WhatsApp will cut its support for Windows Phone and iOS 8 next year. According to the statements, WhatsApp will support Windows Phones until January 1, and iOS 8 will support iPhone until February 1.
WhatsApp, the most popular instant messaging application in the world, is generally the subject of news with innovations. This time, however, we will talk about a decision that WhatsApp has taken that will affect some of the users, not a new feature.
According to the statements made by “WABetaInfo”, a platform that reveals WhatsApp-related information, WhatsApp will cut support for iOS 8 and Windows Phone systems in the future. This statement means that WhatsApp cannot be downloaded again for the iOS 8 and Windows Phone operating system in the future.
As a matter of fact, the nightmare of the discontinuation of application support for Windows Phone users had begun much earlier. Now WhatsApp has been added among the developers of this app. Therefore, iOS 8 users will be most affected by this decision.
According to WABetaInfo, the WhatsApp application will not work on Windows Phone devices on January 1, 2020. When calendars show February 1, 2020, iOS 8 users will be able to continue using WhatsApp, but when they want to re-verify their accounts, they will not be able to verify again and will not be able to access WhatsApp accounts via iOS 8.
