WhatsApp to halt services on these Smartphones from Dec 31; Check Full List

In a latest move, messaging giant WhatsApp has announced halting its support services for as many as 49 smartphone models starting December 31. You will have to replace your mobile device with a newer model if it’s on this list in order to keep utilizing the instant messaging platform.

WhatsApp will stop functioning, on a range of devices, also including those made by Apple and Samsung. This suggests that owners of such phones would eventually lose access to WhatsApp beyond the set date because they will no longer be able to receive updates from WhatsApp, including new features and security patches.

The majority of the listed gadgets are outdated and possibly only utilized by a very tiny number of people. In light of this, the vast majority of smartphone owners globally shouldn’t be concerned about the support termination.
