WhatsApp reveals it’s extending support for Android Gingerbread until 2020

June 14, 2018

As of last month, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which made its debut way back in 2010, was still running on 0.3% of all Android devices, with a bunch of them apparently being keen WhatsApp users. After all, the popular messaging app’s latest statement confirms support for the OS will be extended through 2020.

The exact date is February 1, 2020, and it actually coincides with the retirement of support for Apple’s iOS 7, although this platform isn’t quite as old – it was first released back in 2013 alongside the iPhone 5S. Upon the specified date, WhatsApp users will no longer be able to access the service, although the Facebook-owned company has confirmed that features for these platforms are no longer being introduced and does warn that certain ones could stop working at any time due to the lack of compatibility with newer versions of its app.
