WhatsApp To Stop Working these phone Till June 30


The most widely used instant messaging app had last year announced that it will drop support for a few platforms. The company later extended the support until JUNE 2017 after BlackBerry expressed its disappointment with  WhatsApp  gave the reasoning that the dated platforms don’t offer the kind of capabilities  it needs to expand the app’s features in the future.
If you are among those still using a dated software platform, then it’s time you start looking for alternative of WhatsApp. As promised, WhatsApp will be ending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, and Nokia S60 platforms on JUNE 30.
This Step comes after the Facebook-Owned brand decided in NOVEMBER to delay ending support for the ageing
BlackBerry and Nokia software from DECEMBER 2016 to JUNE 2017.


Support for Android 2.2 Froyo, iOS 6, and Windows Phone 7 was ended by WhatsApp in December last year

In its Support page, WhatsApp explains, “These platforms don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer OS version , or to a newer.

Android running OS 2.3.3 plus , iPhone running iOs 7 plus , or Windows Phone 8 plus  so that you can continue using WhatApps .”

WhatsApp had previously emphasized how much market changed in the years since WhatsApp was launched in 2009.

Recapping the market, the messaging services said that in 2009 Android and iOS platforms were running on less than 25 percent of the devices , while BlackBerry and Nokia’s operating system dominated the market with roughly a 70 percent share. 

WhatsApps decision to pull the plug on Symbian and BlackBerry. However, recaps how the platforms have lost popularity.
