WhatsApp will stop working on this platform by December

WhatsApp has been practically pushing back the end of support on old mobile operating systems. It has, in the past, removed support on its marquee app from platforms including Nokia S40, BlackBerry OS, and more. The Facebook-owned company is
now pulling the plug on its apps on Windows Phone OS, as mentioned in the updated mobile device support page. The end of support on Windows Phone encompasses all the versions including the Windows 10 Mobile and comes into effect on December 31, 2019.

While WhatsApp app on the forlorn Windows Phone platforms will cease to get the official support, the company could be working on a Universal Windows Platform, also called the UWP. According to WABetaInfo, UWP is in development but there are no concrete details such as what exactly will this platform do or if it will be manifested into an app that will be universally adopted by forthcoming Windows mobile platforms, in addition to Windows for PC.

The last rumours on Windows Phone tipped a Surface Phone but it has been more than a year since the breakout. Microsoft has been mum on what it is planning to do with Windows 10 Mobile that is still running on a negligibly small chunk of phones. But for now, WhatsApp seems to be done with Microsoft’s mobile OS.
