WhatsApp to Turn off Support for Windows Phones: Report

However, you’ll be able to continue using WhatsApp on these platforms

WhatsApp would stop support for Windows Phone on December 31, 2019 which is aligned with Microsoft’s decision to end support for their operating system, the Facebook-owned platform said on Tuesday.

After Microsoft pulls support in December, device backups for settings and some apps will continue for three months until March 10, 2020.

“Following Microsoft’s recent decision to end support for Windows Mobile devices in December, WhatsApp will release its final update for Windows phones in June.
