Whatsapp has noted in its FAQ section and through a new app update available on BlackBerry 10, quietly letting users know the support will be extended until June 30, 2017.
The statement reads, ” As announced in our blog, we will soon be ending support for certain devices. On June 30, 2017, we will no longer support the following platforms:
BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60.
“The following platforms will no longer be supported at the beginning of 2017:
Android 2.1 and Android 2.2, Windows Phone 7 and iPhone 3GS/iOS 6.
“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 Android running OS 2.3+, a Windows Phone 8+, or an iPhone running iOS 7+ before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.”
The new update for the BlackBerry 10 version is available through BlackBerry World right now, it’s a re-setting of the time-bomb built into the app, which will now no longer go off at the end of 2016.
