Facebook owned WhatsApp drops support for older devices. The company has said that the app will no longer support on devices running on  Android 2.2 or lower , Windows Phone 7 or lower and iOS 6.0 or lower. The company said that it would focus on those platforms that are used by majority of the users and the above platforms don’t offer those capabilities that are required to expand their features.

The company has also announced that it would stop supporting BlackBerry OS and Nokia’s Symbian after June 30, 2017. This move won’t have an adverse impact as the above devices contribute a very small share. If you want to enjoy WhatsApp, then you need to buy a new phone running on a compatible OS (upgraded OS).
