WhatsApp, owned by Facebook, has announced on its support page that on 31 December 2019, it will cease supporting these devices. The company says that any phone running the Windows Mobile operating system will not be supported after this date.
Blocks for iOS and Android will not occur this month but will occur on February 1, 2020. WhatsApp says nobody can build new accounts or revisit existing accounts with these older phones. Because we don't actively design this form of operating systems anymore, certain features can cease to work at any time,' the company said in the blog announcement that cut-offs are being made on a regular basis.
