After Whatsapp stopped working on Android 2.2 Froyo, iOS 6, and Windows Phone 7 December last year. Whatsapp have officially announced the Shutting down of Whatsapp from BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, and Nokia S60 platforms on June 30.
Although last year 2016 it was announced that BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, and Nokia S60 platforms will not Run Whatsapp From 6th January but The deadline was canceled after BlackBerry expressed its disappointment with WhatsApp’s decision to abandon the platform.
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.
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+, iPhone running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8+ so that you can continue using WhatsApp.”
The Facebook-owned company has advised that anyone with the above-mentioned older platforms who want to keep chatting with friends via WhatsApp will need to upgrade to a newer operating system or a new device.
