And is that almost a year ago we announced that WhatsApp removed its support for Android 2.1, 2.2 and 2.3 (the first version with support is 2.3.7), and now that is about to end support for all versions 2.3 , It seems that WhatsApp has backtracked and will continue to operate on these devices, specifically until 1 February 2020.

And is that WhatsApp has changed, from his blog, the dates on which will end support some operating systems, and to start we must say that finally Nokia S40 will have support until December 31, 2018, as we said, and Not as BlackBerry until December 31, 2017, as other media reported incorrectly.
