Whatsapp To Stop Working On Some Phones From January 1st

SHARE
You may have to buy another smartphone if your phone falls into Whatsapp’s affected phone type.

On New Year’s day, Whatsapp will cease to provide support for some smartphones. What this means is that phone users won’t be able to update to newer versions or enjoy new features of the software.

The affected smartphones include Blackberry 10, Windows Phone 8.0 or any smartphone running Blackberry OS.

In a blog post, WhatsApp wrote: “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.”
