Whatsapp says its time to upgrade your device, this might be a sad news for some users of WhatsApp. This was decided since November to stop the support to the outdated OS but for some reason, it was delayed.

Meanwhile, Blackberry expressed their disappointment about this. The reasons that Whatsapp put forward about the case is that outdated OS wouldn’t be able to carry the latest features that are provided by Whatsapp. They are requesting its user to upgrade their OS and enjoy the latest features provided by the company. These outdated OS wouldn’t be able to cope with the features that are going to provided by the company.

After this Whatsapp can only be used in the OS’s like Android 2.3.3 and above and in the case of iPhone it can be used in iOS 7 and above OS’s and Windows users can use Whatsapp on Windows 8 and above. This means that those of you who would like to keep older device can use it make the call and other purposes and if you want to continue your WhatsApp usage you must get a new OS.
