If when you don't have WhatsApp you feel disconnected from the world, you better start checking your phone because as of February 1, 2020, the popular courier service cannot be used on certain devices.
WhatsApp will stop working on certain phones next year due to an update of the platform announced on its website. These smartphones are those that have the iOS 8 and Android 2.3.7 operating systems. In fact, with these versions, it is no longer possible to create new accounts or verify existing accounts, but from the first day of February 2020, WhatsApp will be permanently unusable in them.
A little before that date, as of December 31, 2019, the courier service will no longer be available for all Windows Phone operating systems.RELATED
And while the WhatsApp statement indicates specific dates, it also warns that in some phones "Certain features may stop working anytime".
So the most convenient thing is to update your phone now that you are still on time. The app recommends looking for smartphones that have the following operating systems: Android OS 4.0.3, iOS 9, KaiOS 2.5.1 or higher. And on warning, there is no deception.
