WhatsApp users from India have not been able to use the application mostly on Xiaomi phones.
According to Techook's report, Xiaomi has issued an official statement taking the responsibility of the "WhatsApp Obsolete" issue and explaining why it happened. You will not face the problem again because Xiaomi has updated the app in the store to the latest version approved by WhatsApp.
Users who are still facing the issue are advised to update WhatsApp on their smartphones. Instead, they were told "This version of WhatsApp became obsolete on January 13 2018". Users were greeted with a message that said "This version of WhatsApp has become obsolete".

"We apologize for any inconvenience faced by our Mi Fans, and promise to be more vigilant going forward", Xiaomi spokesperson told Techook. WABetaInfo first the new feature on the WhatsApp app.
