Whatsapp For Windows Phone Will No Longer Be Officially Supported After Today by VARDIEN(m): 10:32am On Dec 31, 2019
WhatsApp is saying goodbye to the Windows Phone world by officially ending support for the mobile platform managed by Microsoft. The Facebook-owned company has decided to withdraw support from all Windows Phone versions from today. This means no matter which Windows Phone iteration your device has, it won't get official support for WhatsApp starting tomorrow. The instant messaging app that has over 1.5 billion users across the globe and more than 400 million users in India alone is also set to leave its support for the devices running Android version 2.3.7 and older alongside the iPhone models running iOS 8 and older from February 1, 2020.

Despite ending support, WhatsApp will continue to work on your Windows Phone device. It is, however, important to note that you won't receive any future updates or security fixes.

"Because we no longer actively develop for these operating systems, some features might stop functioning at any time," WhatsApp wrote on its FAQ section defining end of support for Windows Phone versions.

Since July this year, WhatsApp has been unavailable for download through Microsoft Store. Windows 10 Mobile, which is the successor to the earlier Windows Phone versions, is also set to reach end of service from January 14, 2020. The means that the platform itself won't receive any security updates starting early next month.
