Yesterday, we reported that popular instant messaging application, WhatsApp has sacked their support for older OS versions of all the three platforms - Android, iOS, and Windows Phone 7. Following the footsteps of WhatsApp, another popular messaging app, Telegram, today in a press note, said that they are going to end the support for older versions of Android.
Telegram now requires Android version of Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0) and above. Users below Android 3.0 are not eligible to use the services of Telegram anymore. A good number of 19.6 million users of Android are still using Android 3.0 and below, but the company wants to provide new features for everyone.
Developers don't want to affect the features of the application as some of these versions of Android require latest API's to get the features working. And, as a result, they are ending the support.
