Whatsapp will be unsuppoting some OS by the end of 2019, for the following operating systems, you can no longer create new accounts, nor reverify existing accounts. However, you’ll be able to continue using WhatsApp on:
- Android versions 2.3.7 and older until February 1, 2020

You’ll no longer be able to use all Windows Phone operating systems after December 31, 2019, and WhatsApp might not be available in the Microsoft Store after July 1, 2019.
Because whatsapp no longer actively develop for these operating systems, some features might stop functioning at any time
They provide support for and recommend using the following devices:
- Android running OS 4.0.3+

- Select phones running KaiOS 2.5.1+, including JioPhone and JioPhone 2
Once you have one of these devices, simply install WhatsApp and verify your phone number. Keep in mind that WhatsApp can only be activated with one phone number on one device at a time. Furthermore, there’s no option to transfer your chat history between platforms. However, we provide the option to export your chat history as an email attachment.
