Few are the users of mobile phones that continue to use Nokia devices with Symbian S40 operating system (own software developed by the Finnish company and that could do nothing with the rise of Android and iOS) but as of today they have one more reason to change their smartphone.
“Mobiles with iOS7 or Android 2.3 will no longer be able to use WhatsApp at the end of the year.”
And is that from today, January 1, WhatsApp stops working on mobile phones with this operating system. The company had announced months ago the end of support for this version – that is, WhatsApp did not receive updates and did not incorporate the new features that were being released – but now it is not that it does not have support, but that it is completely unused.
Since WhatsApp is not operative for this system, users will have no choice but to uninstall the application -or leave it unusable on their mobile phone- which will cause many to finally decide to change their device, as they can not communicate with their friends and family. through the most used instant messaging app in the world.
This year, this is the only operating system that will see how WhatsApp will no longer be available, but at the end of 2019 other mobile phones will no longer be able to use the messaging system. Specifically, mobile phones that work with iOS 7 and Android 2.3 will no longer be able to use WhatsApp on January 31 of this year that has just begun.
So, those who have a phone that uses any of these operating systems have a year to change their mobile if they want to be able to continue using WhatsApp in 2020.
