Back in August I already wrote on how WhatsApp has announced on their blog to discontinue support for some smartphones till the end of the year. Anyone wanting to use WhatsApp as well in the future will so have to switch to a more actual device.
At that time the following devices were put out of support:
- BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
- Nokia S40
- Nokia Symbian S60
- Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
- Windows Phone 7.1
- iPhone 3GS/iOS 6
With an update now on this WhatsApp is extending its support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017.
So if you are on one of these devices you got a bit longer to think about what phone comes next.
