WhatsApp will drop Windows Phone and BlackBerry OS support on December 31
WhatsApp says “goodbye” to dead operating systems such as BlackBerry OS (including BlackBerry 10) and Windows Phone 8.0 as of December 31st. Although the app will continue to run on these platforms, however users will not be able to create new accounts or re-confirm existing ones.
From WhatsApp explains the app may stop working at any time, so maybe it’s time to think about switching to other platforms.
Over the past few months, WhatsApp has released some useful features (such as quickly deleting sent text, real-time location sharing, and new universal emoticons), but older platforms seem to be unable to support these “capabilities,” and the company decided to end their maintenance.
WhatsApp offers the following advice for owners of these older devices:
“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 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.
Once you have one of these devices, simply install WhatsApp and verify your phone number on the new device. Keep in mind that WhatsApp can only be activated with one phone number on one device at a time.
There is currently no option to transfer your chat history between platforms. However, we provide the option to send your chat history attached to an email.” Post from: GizBrainhttp://szlifestyle.com/sz/2017/12/28/whatsapp-will-drop-windows-phone-blackberry-os-support-december-31/https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/whatsapp.jpg?fit=805%2C456https://i0.wp.com/szlifestyle.com/sz/wp-content/uploads/2017/12/whatsapp.jpg?resize=180%2C150TECH NEWSapp,application,BlackBerry,BlackBerry OS,social network,WhatsApp,Windows PhoneWhatsApp says 'goodbye' to dead operating systems such as BlackBerry OS (including BlackBerry 10) and Windows Phone 8.0 as of December 31st.
