After WhatsApp has end its supports for older smartphones, Telegram Messenger which is one of the most used App after whatsapp has also dropped it's supports for any Android smartphone running on older operating system (OS). I think this messaging applications are trying their best efforts to force us in purchasing or buying a modern smartphone.
The company said that any telegram users using Android v2.2 (Froyo), Android v2.3 (Gingerbread), Android v3.0 (Honeycomb), and Android v4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) need to buy modern Smartphone running on higher Operating system but any Smartphone can still access telegram through the web which is for those who can't afford modern Smartphone anytime soon.
The company also said that they want to add new features to their telegram messaging App and these features won't work on older operating system so that's why they end the support of older operating system versions. The latest application programming interface (API) is required to run the modern operating system of telegram which older operating system does not support.
Well, Skype also does not work on older operating system as well. So before you can access WhatsApp, telegram and Skype you need a modern Smartphone running on higher Operating system from today onward.
Is it helpful? What do you have to say about telegram end of support for older operating system? Do you think this action made by telegram is right?
