Facebook’s messaging platform WhatsApp is going to stop support for some phones. According to a report by WhatsApp tracker WABetaInfo, 2.21.50 version of WhatsApp beta will not support devices supporting iOS 9 and earlier. Although WhatsApp has not updated its FAQ page at the moment, it is expected that it will be updated once this version is made public. This means that WhatsApp will not support iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s phones.
Currently, the iPhone 5 is the last iPhone on which WhatsApp is working, as the iPhone 5 has received an update of 10.3. For Android users, WhatsApp supports smartphones running Android 4.0.3 and above.
Apart from this, talk about the upcoming features of WhatsApp, so a better version of the archive chats is coming very soon. According to WABetaInfo, it is currently at the feature development stage, and it has been said that WhatsApp is also working on some UI (user interfaces) that users will be able to see in the archive chat.
All incoming notifications of archived chats will remain muted. This means that users will not know the messages coming in archive chats. WABetaInfo says that this will be a feature option.
