WhatsApp Will No Longer Work On These Phones!
It might be bad news for few WhatsApp users! As we have already seen, WhatsApp at the end of every year ends support for few number of devices. The previous year we have seen WhatsApp ending support for some outdated devices that are no longer used.
Now, it looks like the company is ending support for more devices. WhatsApp has again planned to end support for devices that are no longer important according to them. WhatsApp is now owned by Facebook and the instant messaging app is used by a majority of users worldwide.
Recently, the company announced in one of its blog post that it will end support for Blackberry, Microsoft Windows, and Nokia. So, if you are running Blackberry OS, Blackberry 10 and Windows Phone 8.0 or Older then you will no more use the app after December 31, 2017.
WhatsApp on its blog stated that “This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp”
To recall, the company had already extended the support for both platforms in June this year. The company had also announced a list of platforms that it ceased support for in February. These included Android 2.1 and 2.1, Windows Phone 7 and also few version of iOS.
