Whatsapp Postpones Usage Deadline For Symbian And Blackberry Users(See New Date)

It is good news that BlackBerry and Nokia symbian users in Nigeria
and across the world can still be able to use
WhatsApp on their devices
up until June 30, 2017
instead of the earlier set date of December 31, 2016.
WhatsApp stated this on
Wednesday when it
updated its support page,
adding that it would now
end its support on the
BlackBerry software platform mid next year.

It stated that Blackberry
users had "a bit more than
seven more months to enjoy
the social media app."

"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 WhatsApp statement on
its updated page read.
The company confirmed
that the service would be
halted on Android 2.1 and
Android 2.2 as well as
Windows Phone 7 at the
beginning of 2017.

According to it, the
messaging app will no
longer be supported on old
operating systems,
including devices running
iOS 6 and the iPhone 3GS phone. The statement said, "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." It noted that there was
currently no option to
transfer chat history
between platforms.
Although, upon request, the
company said it could provide chat history
attached to an email.
