The creators of WhatsApp stated that the app will stop working on phones which have BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone 8.0 operating systems and on what’s older than, too, because they don’t offer what they’re supposed to offer in order for the app to expand nicely, because these platforms are just old and probably not built not support Whatsapp’s new features.
What happened, actually?
They stated they have made plans for 7 years ahead and all their attention must go to the platforms that the majority of users have. And if we really think about it, it is kind of fair. People want new stuff all the time, so they upgrade their devices and apps constantly.
What does that mean?
However, you will still be able to use WhatsApp but it won’t have the same features and you won’t be able to create new accounts, for example. They just decided they’re not going to create anything new for this platforms, so you should hurry and upgrade your OS very soon.
When will all of this start?
Also, bad news for those who use Nokia S40 and Android versions of 2.3.7 or older, because starting from December 2018, respectively February 1, 2020, you should consider changing the situation, too.
What is there to do?
If you are among those who use one of these operating systems, you should upgrade them to new versions, if you want to continue to enjoy WhatsApp.
So since they’re not working on updating the app for these operating systems, you’ll be wasting your time waiting for the app to upgrade. That means there will be no new features, no fixed bugs, and no fixed glitches. Now, you don’t wanna miss all the fun, right?
