Whatsapp made it known to us that it is soon going to block certain users. This is not about the unofficial WhatsApp versions ban we already know like GB WhatsApp, Yo WhatsApp ban, but this is a new WhatsApp block that is about to happen.
WhatsApp has been warning users for some time that they are going to make the app unavailable to older model devices and so users should upgrade their operating systems, and it is almost time for WhatsApp to kick this action.
This is going to be a big blow to some WhatsApp users as they are going to face major problems these following months when WhatsApp finally takes this action. This WhatsApp ban is going to affect those who are using older mobile phones and haven’t upgraded their phone because they are going to be blocked by WhatsApp.
Whatsapp has made it known to us that windows phones are no longer going to have access to WhatsApp and the last date for this is 31st December 2019 if they do not upgrade their versions.
Any iPhone that runs on an IOS version older than 7 should soon expect a block
Also, Android versions currently running on version 2.3.7. should also soon expect a block from February 1, 2020
If you find yourself to be a victim on this WhatsApp block and you use WhatsApp on daily basis like me, then you need to update your operating system to a little more current version to be able to continue using this app.
Here Are The Full List Of Dates And Phones WhatsApp Stopped Working On:
• Nokia Symbian S60 after June 30, 2017
• BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 after December 31, 2017
• Also Nokia S40 after December 31, 2018
Here Are The Recent Dates And Phones WhatsApp Is SOON Going To Stop Working On:
• All Windows Phone operating systems after December 31, 2019 (that is when you don’t upgrade to the latest version)
• WhatsApp will stop working on Android versions 2.3.7 and older after February 1, 2020
• iPhone iOS 7 and older also after February 1, 2020
Why Is WhatsApp Blocking All These Phones From Accessing WhatsApp?
Whatsapp made a blog post saying:
“As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use.”
To be on the safer side, we recommend you upgrade your mobile version that is if you are using Windows phones, android and iPhone to avoid this WhatsApp block.
