WhatsApp becomes "obsolete" for many Indian users - Here're the solutions

WhatsApp becomes

Earlier only some users reported that their WhatsApp was facing some kind of issue around the first week of January, but the problem seems to have spread to more users from the midnight of 13 January. The Facebook-owned company which is introducing new features every day has now reportedly stopped working on a few phones with an error- "This version of WhatsApp became obsolete on 13 Jan 2018". Many users of the chat app have taken to social media platforms to express their frustration. However, when you head to the Play Store, you are not able to run any download because there are no updates available. However, the Play Store does not show any option to update but just displays uninstall and open options. "Please go to Google Play Store to download the latest version". While it is not clear if normal users were also affected, it seems that the issue primarily affected people who were WhatsApp's Beta Testing Program.

Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates! WhatsApp has acknowledged the error message, and stated that the problem is being fixed. "It was a problem with how our [WhatsApp] app is distributed, which is not under our control".

Meanwhile, some reports suggested that the issue primarily affected users who were using Xiaomi handsets. But mere uninstalling and installing of the application may cause the loss of your previous data if you haven't set the data synchronization to daily.
