Meanwhile, the owners of terminals BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 will be able to use WhatsApp until June 30.

WhatsApp is one of the apps most popular mobile around the world. His base of followers has continued to grow after the purchase by Facebook a few years ago.

But not everyone can benefit from its functions of communication. And is that, to the extent that this invention has evolved, the makers of WhatsApp have been forced to to abandon support for older versions of the operating systems used by its members.

a little less than a year, after serving seven life, WhatsApp announced by the end of 2016 would no longer be compatible with BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Windows Phone 7, Android 2.1 and Android 2.2. Also took the opportunity to say good-bye to the couple of iPhone 3GS/iOS 6.

The intention was to focus only on those operating systems that you rely on the most users, that have ever-increasing with newer mobile phones in their possession. Not in vain, the mobile landscape is not what it was. The supremacy of Nokia and BlackBerry has moved on to other preferences. “These platforms have been of great importance in our history,”, recognized WhatsApp, “but they already do not have the capabilities necessary to expand the functions of our application in the future”.

With the premiere of 2017, WhatsApp has fulfilled its promise. Has ceased to support the older versions. Although it has not been as blunt with all of it.

While it has said goodbye to the old phones Android, iPhone and Windows Phone, has decided to extend a few more months the effect on BlackBerry, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60. What does exactly to 30 June of 2017. From there, those who have a phone with these operating systems and wish to continue using WhatsApp will have to change terminal.
