Wee Announcement Accordingly, support for smartphones running Android 2.3..7 and older, as well as iOS 7 and older, will be discontinued from February 1. A few weeks ago WhatsApp users were promised to run all these versions of the device to create new accounts and re-verify the accounts. However, users could use the account already running until today, i.e. February 1, 2020.
Let us know that there are currently millions of devices that are running Android version 2.3..7 or older. Apart from this, the number of iPhone users of iOS 8 and earlier is also very high.
WhatsApp is still working on Geo Phone and Geo Phone 2 running on QOS 2.5.1+ version. For Android and iPhone users, WhatsApp works on Android OS 126.96.36.199 and below and iOS 9 and above.
