This version of WhatsApp become obsolete

Let us see how to solve this error:
Actually this is not an error. The message indicates the current version of WhatsApp is out of date and you should update with new one. You might get this message even on new version of WhatsApp.
These are 3 methods to overcome this error:

Method 1: Update WhatsApp with new version

           This is the legal way to solve this error. Normally WhatsApp updates once in 2 or 3 months. So you need their new version to get new features. Sometimes you should update to overcome some bugs on WhatsApp. So why WhatsApp says to update even you don’t want their new features. If you have a faster internet connection then just update WhatsApp using download button.
 NB: it is better to download WhatsApp from authorized website or authorized Google play store link

If you get this error message and if you have no enough mobile data or your internet speed is too slow, then you can use WhatsApp without downloading newer version. Try second method.

Method 2: Changing the phone date

            Sometime Google search result does not open due to incorrect device’s date. Like this, if your phone date is incorrect with any old date, and then just correct it. You may use auto updating of date time accurate date and time from network.
If you have no enough mobile data balance or no enough download speed and if you want to use WhatsApp with a older version, then update your phone date with an older date (just a month before obsolete date) can avoid updating your WhatsApp

Method 3: Clearing WhatsApp data:

            Try this method if and only if above two methods are not working. You might get error message even your WhatsApp is a version and your phone date and time is correct. Let us try ti resolve it.
Here we clear WhatsApp data.
For this, in setting, go to Application manager. Open WhatsApp. Clear data.
