WhatsApp is the most widely used messaging platform in India.
WhatsApp has been prey to these ‘crash codes’ that explore a bug in the code to crash the app, and the latest one has reportedly been quite widespread.
Users first have to update the latest WhatsApp Web version in order to create a room shortcut. However, the feature is not available on the mobile app yet.
The complaint comes at a critical time for WhatsApp, when it is aggressively working to fully launch its payments platform in India.
The statement was made during the hearing of a petition seeking a ban on payment through WhatsApp, as it does not conform to the data localization norms.
WhatsApp will stop working on Android devices running on versions older than 4.0.3, while iOS devices running versions older than iOS 9 will also stop working.
