Like Symbian WhatsApp Pulls The Plug On Old Blackberry and Windows Devices

Like Symbian WhatsApp Pulls The Plug On Old Blackberry and Windows Devices”

Come 2018, older BlackBerry and Windows phones will not be able to use WhatsApp as the company has chose to cease support for some older mobile operating systems.

"The platform [we no longer support] does not have the capability that we need to expand WhatsApp features in the future", it said.

It is also planning to cut support for Nokia S40 devices on 31 December 2018 and phones running Android versions 2.3.7 and older on 1 February 2020. Blackberry 10 was its ambitious replacement which failed to give iOS and Android a run for its money and was eventually forgotten by Blackberry themselves. "If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer OS version, or to a newer Android running OS 4.0+, iPhone running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8.1+ so that you can continue using WhatsApp".

"For the following platforms, you can no longer create new accounts, nor re-verify existing accounts".

WhatsApp's advice to those who have one of the affected smartphones but want to continue using the service is simply to buy an upgraded device. WhatsApp will not be working on your older windows phones but the devices running Windows 10 are pretty safe for now.

This Facebook-owned messaging app is now testing services and businesses on the app. Players like BookMyShow, MakeMyTrip, etc. are already sending updates, alerts to their customers on WhatsApp now, rather than relying on traditional SMS.
