From January 15, 2020, those who use a device with Windows Phone 8.1, Windows 10 Mobile or older, will no longer be able to use the WhatsApp application.
If you have a Windows Phone and you start your WhatsApp, you will see the support end warning and you will not be able to view your existing conversations.
Specifically you will see the message: “You can no longer use WhatsApp on this phone because WhatsApp no longer supports it. Press to learn how to switch to a supported phone ".
Also, it is no longer possible to create a new WhatsApp account for Windows Phone. Additionally, users cannot verify their existing account unless the connected phone number is also listed on a supported phone.
Facebook launched the WhatsApp Windows Phone app from the Microsoft Store last week. According to Facebook, the remaining Windows Phone users will not have WhatsApp after these changes and may have trouble switching to Android or iOS.
Since you can't install Android or iOS on your Windows Phone, it may be time to buy a new phone.
Windows Phone after a long time on the market reached the end of their life on January 14th. Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and many other popular apps have stopped working on Windows Phone.
The Microsoft Store, Microsoft and third-party applications are still running, but Microsoft has recently made changes to the store and is now preventing developers from posting updates for Windows Phones.
