Whatsapp to stop operating from January in Old OS Smartphones



Whatsapp to stop operating on Blackberry, Nokia, older Android versions and more by end of 2016

The widely adopted Facebook-owned messaging app platform encompassing almost 95% smartphone users in India is to no longer support Nokia S40, Symbian, Android 2.1 and 2.2 and Windows 7.1 and more.

Whatsapp Blog post declares that Whatsapp will be pulled out from Symbian and Blackberry BBOS also after December, 2016.

Upgrade your device to keep using whatsapp

Using the messenger on older smartphones would pose a security threat as there would be no longer updates and security patches supplied by Whatsapp.

Third party developers will opt to tweak in to make them function; however working on a third party or tweaked application is never favored.

The blog post adds on that it’s a tough decision for them but it will provide better ways to be in touch with friends, family and loved ones.

So it’s a golden time to upgrade your device.
