WhatsApp is currently the number one mobile messaging platform with more than 1 billion users worldwide.
The Facebook-owned company keeps growing and evolving, and at the same time, it receives new features that wouldn’t be possible without the technologies that are bundled into modern operating systems.
More recently, WhatsApp announced that support for some older operating systems would be dropped, meaning that some of those people using 10-year-old smartphones would no longer be able to chat with their contacts.
More specifically, WhatsApp would no longer work on the following platforms starting with February 1, 2020:
• Android versions 2.3.7 and older
• iOS 8 and older
Because some have turned to social media to express their anger towards WhatsApp’s decision to leave behind these platforms, let’s have a look at more data regarding these operating systems.
