WhatsApp will soon throw other old versions of Android overboard and no longer support them. Another change is planned for February 1, 2020, it can be read in the Messenger FAQ. From this day, the previous versions of the Android operating system 2.3.7 and iOS 8 will be removed, so you will need at least Android 4.0.3 Ice Cream Sandwich on your smartphone to use WhatsApp.

Android 4.0.3 was released in late 2011 and is therefore eight years old now. Certainly, several Android smartphones are still in circulation and are being actively used. The following is a current excerpt from the area where WhatsApp provides information on supported operating systems.

We provide support and recommend the use of the following devices:

  • Android with OS 4.0.3+
  • iPhone with iOS 9+
  • Some phones running KaiOS 2.5.1+, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2

For the following operating systems, you can no longer create new accounts or reverify existing accounts. However, you can still use WhatsApp at:

  • Android versions 2.3.7 and earlier until February 1, 2020
  • iOS 8 and later versions until February 1, 2020
