It’s currently available on select versions of the devices but will cease to be from December 31.

WhatsApp will stop working on Windows phones at the end of 2019,

WhatsApp said: “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.”

It’s not just Windows phone owners that are going to be disappointed though as WhatsApp will also stop working on several Android smartphones and iPhones next year.

As of February 1, 2020, people using Android versions 2.3.7 or older will not be able to create new accounts or re-verify existing accounts.

The same fate will apply to users of iPhones running on iOS 8 or older.

Then click on ‘Group Info’.

Next you’ll need to scroll down and click ‘Export Chat’.

This will give you the option to download the chat with or without media.

Microsoft has decided to end support for Windows phone software due to a lack of market penetration and disinterest from app developers.

The company advised people to invest in iOS and Android devices.

In other news, WhatsApp’s long-awaited ‘dark mode’ will switch on automatically to boost your phone’s battery life, according to reports.

It emerged last month that a recent WhatsApp update was dramatically draining people’s phone batteries.

And, make sure you don’t click this text offering you 1,000GB of free xmas internet.
