WhatsApp is ending support for Windows phones, effective December 31, 2019.

WhatsApp updated its mobile device support blog post to announce the end of support for the Windows Phone platform on December 31, 2019. In this case, the end of support is not limited to lack of future updates but it means that users on this platform will not be able to use WhatsApp anymore.

This applies to all the mobile phones running any version of the Windows operating system. WhatsApp stopped working for Windows Phone 7 back in 2016, and now the Facebook-owned messaging service has announced to end the support for all the Windows phones on December 31.

–Nokia S40 after December 31, 2018
