Update: WhatsApp is again going to stop working on some operation systems this November 2021, you might want to check out the latest article covering the phones that will not support WhatsApp after November 1, 2021.
Whatsapp made it known to us that it is soon going to block certain users. This ban is not about the unofficial WhatsApp version ban we already know, like GB WhatsApp, Yo WhatsApp ban, but this is a new WhatsApp block about to happen.
WhatsApp has been warning users for some time that they will 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 will be a big blow to some WhatsApp users as they will face significant problems these following months when WhatsApp finally takes this action. This WhatsApp ban will 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 December 31, 2019, if they do not upgrade their versions.
Any iPhone that runs on an IOS version older than seven should soon expect a block.
Also, Android versions are 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 of this WhatsApp block and use WhatsApp daily like me, you need to update your operating system to a little more current version to continue using this app.
