As 2022 is coming to an end WhatsApp will stop working for some Android phones as well as some iPhone models. This might sound worrying for many of the users. But the users need not worry since the messaging platform is ending its support only for the phones that are running on old and outdated operating system. According to the reports, WhatsApp will stop working for nearly 49 smart phones after the stated date, ie, December 31.
The users of those phones will no longer be able to get updates which includes the new features and security updates from WhatsApp. Hence, the WhatsApp services in these phone will stop working for them eventually. It should be noted that, most of the phones in this list are years old that the chances they are used by people is very less.
