WhatsApp To Discontinue Support For Blackberry and Others 2


WhatsApp yesterday announced in a blog post that they are ending support for the following mobile platforms by the end of 2016;

  • Blackberry, including blackberry 10 
  • Nokia s40
  • Nokia Symbian s60
  • Android 2.1 and 2.2
  • Windows 7.1

According to the post

While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future.
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.

 Especially my people Fae and ati. Lol please upgrade.
