Breaking News - WhatsApp Announces Extension For Support Of Blackberry 10 Phones And Other Devices

whatsapp blackbery

Seems popular chat platform, WhatsApp, may have succumbed to pressure from some "quarters" as it just made it known via its blog that it's planned support for BB10 phones and other named phones/OS would no longer end by 31st Dec 2016.

Well, it seems as though they've had a little bit of a change of heart. As noted in their FAQ section and through a new app update available on BlackBerry 10, WhatsApp has quietly let users know the support will be extended until June 30, 2017.

Read Statement Below:-
WhatsApp support for mobile devices 
As announced in our blog, we will soon be ending support for certain devices. On June 30, 2017, we will no longer support the following platforms: 
• BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
• Nokia S40
• Nokia Symbian S60 
The following platforms will no longer be supported at the beginning of 2017: 
• Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
• Windows Phone 7
• iPhone 3GS/iOS 6 
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 Android running OS 2.3+, a Windows Phone 8+, or an iPhone running iOS 7+ before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.

It should go without saying, this will certainly make some folks happy. The new update for the BlackBerry 10 version is available through BlackBerry World right now but keep in mind, it's a re-setting of the time-bomb built into the app, which will now no longer go off at the end of 2016.

Congratulation to all BlackBerry Users!
