WhatsApp Messenger to stop working on some devices in 2016

WhatsApp Messenger to stop working on some devices in 2016

WhatsApp has announced that its popular messaging service will no longer be supported on a number of popular phones such as Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Android 2.1 and Android 2.2, Windows Phone 7.1 and BlackBerry devices, including BlackBerry 10 from the end of 2016.

A statement on the WhatsApp website reads: “As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use.

“So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on some mobile platforms.

"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 before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp."
