WhatsApp will stop working on all smartphones with Windows Phone from December 31, 2019. The instant messaging application will even disappear from the Microsoft store on that date. To continue using WhatsApp, the last users of Windows 10 Mobile will have to migrate to Android or iOS.
WhatsApp Windows phone will work more December 2019
As announced, Windows Phone is slowly coming to an end. In 2018, Microsoft also removed the latest compatible smartphones from the sale. In December 2019, the application store will even close its doors permanently. ” Windows10 Mobile users will no longer receive new free security updates, non-security fixes, free support, or content updates from Microsoft,” warns Microsoft.
After a final update, which will be deployed on December 10, WhatsApp will no longer work on Windows Phone. A few weeks later, the messaging application will disappear from the Store. ” You will no longer be able to use any Windows Phone operating system after December 31, 2019,” said WhatsApp in a statement on its website. The few users of Microsoft’s mobile OS will, therefore, have to do without WhatsApp. As a reminder, the final death of Windows Phone is indeed planned for 2020, after years of slow agony.
To continue using WhatsApp, Windows Phone users have no other solution: they absolutely must swap their current phone for an Android smartphone or an iPhone. On its website, Microsoft does not hesitate to push the last users of its operating system towards competition. “Following the end of support for Windows 10 Mobile, we, therefore, recommend that our customers switch to an Android or iOS device” concludes the American firm. Are you still using a Windows Phone smartphone? Are you going to switch to Android or iOS? We await your testimony in the comments.
