WhatsApp will stop working after December 31, 2017. However, the change is applicable only if you work with devices running BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8.0 operating platforms. The Facebook-owned messaging company had earlier announced that they will stop providing support for a wide range of smartphone platforms by the end of 2017.
If you are currently working with any of the devices running BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10 or Windows Phone 8, you should enjoy messaging to the maximum since you will not be able to work with it from January 1, 2018. With only five days remaining, you can also send a farewell message from within WhatsApp to enable you to remember for a long time.
The main reason for pulling the plug is attributed to the fact that older smartphones won’t provide features, capabilities and required processing power to work with all the features included with the latest versions. The company added that it’s really a tough decision but will provide better opportunities for users to stay in touch with their friends and relatives on the go. Interestingly, the company revealed the decision to stop support for several operating platforms on February 26, 2016, itself to enable users to migrate slowly.
If you are currently working with BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10 and Windows Phone 8.0, you should quickly migrate to the latest smartphones loaded with either Android Marshmallow, Android Nougat or Android Oreo. You have to complete the migration before December 31.
Additionally, if you are working with devices running Nokia Symbian S60, you need to migrate WhatsApp to the latest smartphone before June 30, 2017. The service will not work after July 1. Moreover, you will not be able to work with WhatsApp on Nokia S40 after December 31, 2018, and Android versions 2.3.7 and older after February 1, 2020.
As you can see, the company had announced a detailed roadmap for various operating platforms well ahead of the scheduled date to enable users to migrate slowly. WhatsApp is a popular mobile messaging software available for Android and iOS, which enables you to communicate with text, images, and videos quickly on the go.
