Whatsapp gives a push to the Android versions

Each application evolves so you need a lot of improvements, enhancements found in each new version of Android and be able to squeeze their profits.

One of these applications is Whatsapp, one of the messaging clients most popular though not the only one, for this has released a press release stating the following:

Important: Because we are no longer developing features for these platforms, some functions could stop working at any time.

The reason, the platforms do not have the capacity required to expand the list of functions of our app in the future, so that will no longer work on 01 January 2018, is to say very little time.

The following platforms are not compatible with WhatsApp:

  • Operating system versions of Android prior to 2.3.3
  • Windows Phone 7
  • iOS-3GS/iOS 6
  • Nokia Symbian S60

The following platforms will work a while, but you will not be able to create a new account nor verify an existing account, however, you can continue using WhatsAp until a time:

  • BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10, until 31 December 2017.
  • Nokia S40, until 31 December 2018.
  • Windows Phone 8.0 and earlier, until December 31, 2017.
  • Version of the operating system Android 2.3.7 and earlier, until 1 February 2020.

If you are planning to renovate the terminal, you have to take into account that there is no way to migrate the chat history between devices with different operating systems, if still equal, in the case of Android you can use the backup in your Google Drive.

But there is a possibility if they are different operating systems, that allows us to send it by e-mail:

  • Operating system versions of Android prior to 2.3.3
  • Windows Phone 7
  • iOS-3GS/iOS 6
  • Nokia Symbian S60

If, prior to our conclusions in the article above we said that the version 2.3.3 would last 5 months it is possible that less than two months since this news it is possible to reduce and in favor of new versions, and hopefully the last.
