WhatsApp announced on Tuesday that it was ending support for the Windows Phone platform on December 31, 2019.

This applies to all versions of the Windows Phone operating system, according to the instant messaging app.

Separately however, WhatsApp beta watcher WABetaInfo has tipped a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app is in development, said to be available for both Windows Desktop and Windows Phone platforms, NDTV reported.

WhatsApp has updated its mobile support blog post, and notes that support for all versions of the Windows Phone platform will end after December 31, 2019.

This means that in 2020, Windows Phone users will not be able to use WhatsApp on their devices.

In a statement emailed to Gadgets 360, a WhatsApp spokesperson added that the last update for the platform will be issued in June.
