Today, there are people who can go without food, go without water but cant stay without WhatsApp!

The little chat app has become an integral part of social life and there is no dentying that people far and wide bank a lot on it!

But with the pros come the cons and the latest hit to its popularity was recent and pretty significant when it stopped working in older iPhones and Android handsets.

From Monday, right at the onset of a new year anyone using Android 2.1 or 2.2, an iPhone 3GS or iOS 6 will find the app has stopped working. The same will happen to anyone on Windows Phone 7 and older Nokia phones, as per The Independent.

The step has been taken to ensure that the app could continue to introduce new features and stay secure, which relies on the app being used on newer operating systems. WhatsApp wants to more deeply integrate encryption and other privacy services and old technology stops its agenda.

It also plans to introduce new features, including a feature that would allow people to edit or entirely delete messages after they have been sent.

So in case you have an old phone and want to continue chatting, it's high time you get a new one!
