New Delhi, June 18: Whatsap services were stalled for mobiles with older operating software versions.
Whatsapp is no longer supported for earlier versions of Android 2.3.3, older versions of Windows 8.0, IOS 6, Symbian S60, BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 OS.
Likewise, Whatsapp claims that Whatsapp will no longer be allowed to use some of the other operating software.
However, those who have already been using Whatsapp on those versions make it clear that they can get the service for a longer period of time. Those who have Nokia S40 will be able to receive Watsap services from February 1, 2020 with Android 2.3.3 and 2.3.7
Whatsapp has advised users to upgrade to the next version.
"If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer OS version, or to a newer Android running OS 4.0+, iPhone running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8.1+ so that you can continue using WhatsApp," it says.
