WhatsApp will be discontinued on millions of phones from December 31st, due to upgrade requirements.

49 phone models, including Apple’s iPhone 5 and 5c along with various Android models from Samsung, Huawei and LG will no longer support the app.

Users of these older devices will receive an alert warning message before the app completely ceases functioning.

Upgrading your phone is currently the only way to continue using WhatsApp beyond this date.

A statement from WhatsApp explaining the move said: ‘Devices and software change often, so we regularly review what operating systems we support and make updates.

‘These devices also might not have the latest security updates, or might lack the functionality required to run WhatsApp.

‘To choose what to stop supporting, every year we, like other technology companies, look at which devices and software are the oldest and have the fewest number of people still using them.

‘To update your operating system on an iPhone go to the ‘general’ settings and select ‘software update’.
