If you are among those still using a dated software platform, then it’s time you start to seek for alternatives of Popular messaging app “WhatsApp.”
Because Facebook-owned company is reportedly ending support for some platforms on June 30, 2017.
In 2016, they had said that it will halt its support of “outdated devices.”
The company had said that the app will not run on many older smartphones including Nokia, Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, and BlackBerry.
This move comes after the brand decided in November to extend its support for the Nokia and BlackBerry software from December 2016 to June 2017.
It happened after BlackBerry expressed its huge disappointment with WhatsApp’s decision to stop their platform.
Even the support for Android 2.2 Froyo, Windows Phone 7, and iOS 6 was ended by the widely used instant messaging app in December last year.
WhatsApp gave the reason behind this…!!
The company said that the dated platforms are not capable of running the new features that are to be added in WhatsApp.

1. BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10
2. Nokia Symbian S60
3. Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
