In related news, Facebook recently announced that WhatsApp for Windows phones is set to go dark as well after Instagram and Messenger.

WhatsApp has confirmed that its Windows Phones app will be discontinued on December 31.

Like Microsoft, WhatsApp also recommends users to switch to a supported operating system for continued support.

Microsoft is getting ready to pull support for Windows 10 Mobile version 1703 in June 2019 and support for the last version of the operating system will end in December 2019.

    “WhatsApp has confirmed that all Windows Phones apps will be discontinued
    on December 31 and some features could stop working even earlier as
    WhatsApp would no longer be developed on Microsoft’s mobile platform.”

    Ok. Clearly…What’s going to happen? Will the support of WhatsApp end? Or WhatsApp will stop working? Could you be more specific please?

    • WhatsApp didn’t specify which version of Windows Phone, which make things much more confusing.

    • WhatsApp will continue to work but will have Some trouble while receiving Non-Text based Messages and Calls when new features will be added to iOS and Android in simple words Windows Phone WhatsApp kinda feels like buggy Because Whatsapp on iOS and Android will have More feature different type of Encryption(in Future) etc ,in Future windows phone Whatspp will be useless when Encryption services on other platform fails to Decrypt Messages from Windows Phone and Windows Phone will not be able to Decrypt messages form other platform simple

      • Plus Microsoft will stop support for Silver light apps and Whatsapp is a
        Silverlight app

          Thank you Aash, I appreciate your explanation. More clear than water. I hope that WoA (Windows on Arm) would be ready for then.

          I do not want use neither android nor iOS. W10M is outstanding OS.

    I trust that the end of support for the current operating system means that their new pocketable telephonary devices will be announced soon.

    • Jose D Sambolin

      I am with you Joa Kim.

    • I have reservations on that, since Microsoft is currently actively developing Windows Core OS.
