Instant messaging platform WhatsApp is about to end its support on some devices. Know in which phone the app will not run..
Facebook’s messaging platform WhatsApp is going to stop support for some phones. According to the report of WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo, the 2.21.50 version of WhatsApp beta will not support devices supporting iOS 9 and earlier. Although WhatsApp has not updated its FAQ page at the moment, it is expected that it will be updated once this version becomes public. This means that the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s phones will not support WhatsApp.
At present, the iPhone 5 is the last iPhone on which WhatsApp is working, as the iPhone 5 has received the update up to 10.3. WhatsApp for Android users supports smartphones running Android version 4.0.3 and above.
Lastly, apart from iOS and Android, WhatsApp also works on KaiOS, which works on feature phones like Jio Phone and Jio Phone 2.
Apart from this, if we talk about the upcoming features of WhatsApp, then a better version of archive chats is going to come in it very soon. According to WABetaInfo, this feature is currently in the development stage, and it has been said that WhatsApp is also working on some UI (user interface), which users will be able to see in the archived chat.
All incoming notifications of archived chats will remain muted. This means that users will not be able to know about the incoming messages in Archav chats. WABetaInfo says that this feature will be an option.
