WHATSAPP IS STOPPED WORKING ON BLACKBERRY,  WINDOWS PHONE 8 AND OLDER ANDROID VERSIONS

                                                                               

WhatsApp's farewell note for 2017 is not good news for some smartphone users. WhatsApp stops working on BlackBerry, Windows Phone 8 and older mobiles. WhatsApp will now be not working on Windows Phone 8, BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS as well as old Android phones. Facebook-owned mobile messaging app WhatsApp has stopped working on smartphones that support BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone 8.0 and older platforms in the New Year.


These platforms don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future a spokesperson wrote in a support note on the company's website. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer OS version, or to a newer Android running OS 4.0+, iPhone running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8.1+ so that you can continue using WhatsApp it said. Users would be able to use WhatsApp but would not be able to create new accounts or re-verify existing accounts.
                                                                              


Because we will no longer actively develop for these platforms, some features may stop functioning at any time WhatsApp said. WhatsApp would also end support for Nokia S40 after December 31, 2018 and Android versions 2.3.7 and older after February 1, 2020.
Ending support for Blackberry and Windows Phone has seen no further extensions and will come into place on the mentioned date. If your phone has any of the two specified operating systems, you should consider upgrading to a newer phone in order to access WhatsApp properly. WhatsApp updates for other OS versions like Windows Phone 7, Android 2.1, Android 2.2, and iOS 6 were stopped in 2016.
WhatsApp, earlier this month, officially took covers off its new standalone app for businesses, which features both verified and non-verified profiles. This gives businesses a formal route to conduct business on the messaging app.
