The messaging company cited the inability of the Blackberry 10 OS to support the features of the messaging application as the reason for discontinuing the app on the platform. Blackberry’s Blackberry 10 OS wasn’t the only OS getting the chop, Nokia S40 and S60 OS were also going to be alienated as far as future WhatsApp versions were concerned. But all that changed, going by the recent announcement made by the messaging platform, WhatsApp will still be available to the Blackberry platform until December 2017. This is certainly good news for the Blackberry users whose devices still run Blackberry 10 OS. Needless to say they would not be forced to look for another device to access one of the worlds most used messaging application.

  1. i believe these extensions are for a good reason. it is quite sad that this is happening to Blackberry

    1. Can’t BlackBerry and whatsapp just come to term and collaborate to make things rosy for their customers? My heart goes with those who still use BB

  2. Stopping support for BB phones isn’t necessary to me. At least they’ve users on that platform as well

  3. Even the WhatsApp on blackberry looks outdated than the Android WhatsApp. Maybe WhatsApp want to be seen only on Android and IOS
