The popular instant messaging platform, WhatsApp announced it was ending support for a number of operating systems a few years back.

 

These included – Nokia Symbian S60, Windows Phone 8.0, Nokia S40, Android versions 2.3.7 and older and iPhone iOS 7 and older. While support for Nokia Symbian S60, BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS and Windows Phone 8.0 OS have already ended, WhatsApp has announced that it will pull support for Nokia S40 after December 31st, 2018.

 

Other models include –

  • Nokia 206
  • Nokia 208
  • Nokia 301
  • Nokia 515
  • Nokia C3-00
  • Nokia C3-01
  • Nokia X2-00
  • Nokia X2-01
  • Nokia X3-02
  • Nokia X3-02.5

 

the support for WhatsApp on Nokia S40 devices was supposed to end in June 2018. However, the support was extended till December. For the uninitiated, the Nokia S40 was the brand’s choice of software for smart feature phones, which was killed by Microsoft after it acquired Nokia.

This should not come as a shock as the number of people using S40 devices is expected to be negligible as the last phone running on it was the Nokia 515, launched in 2013. WhatsApp support for Android 2.3.7 and older (Gingerbread) and iPhone 3GS/ iOS 6 is expected to end on February 1st, 2020.
