But it is a good NEWS too. Because WhatsApp is thinking to roll out as much many features to compete its rivals. However, these devices does not have ability to handle the new features like video calling.
WhatsApp in the blog said that these devices has important part in its 7 years of journey. But to keep us updated with the latest features WhatsApp is taking this decisions.
This was a tough decision to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.

I thought this information will be valuable for you guys because one of you is one of those billion people who use WhatsApp and they do give great value to it. This is what WhatsApp is facing tough challenge from other competitors so, it wants to roll out more creative feature to make WhatsApp more user friendly for all you guys. In other words it may be bit tough for people but you’ll get used to it by time.
Other than video calling feature I do believe Whatsapp will come with many great features to maintain its image across the globe.
