However, in this end support doesn’t mean that it will not get future security update. In this end support WhatsApp will not work on any Windows phone platform at the end of 2019.

On Tuesday WABetaInfo tweeted that now WhatsApp is giving its precious time to develop a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app. With the help of this app you can easily use whatsapp on new versions of Windows Phone and Windows Desktop platforms.
I’ve talked about WhatsApp Business for iOS, WhatsApp Business for Android, WhatsApp for KaiOS and recently about WhatsApp Messenger and Business for iPad, before any public announcement from WhatsApp.
Today I can OFFICIALLY confirm that WhatsApp is working on UWP! It’s real😍👍🏼 https://t.co/D5xMTNUvjs
