Meanwhile, phones who can support this messaging service will continue to receive news and improvement with the passage of time.

Therefore, the resources required by WhatsApp will also increase accordingly. While specifications of the smartphone will remain the same, therefore, it will create a mismatch.

It’s obvious that the life span of a particular smartphone and other mobile devices ends at a certain point.

Therefore, from that point onward those phones stop receiving system updates. Or they just lose support for various applications and services.

From December 31, 2019, the smartphone featuring Windows Operating System will not be able to install WhatsApp. But, if the instant messaging app is already installed on them, then it probably, some functions will stop working, thus, makes the smartphone virtually obsolete.
