There are millions of people who make use of this brilliant app, to communicate with their friends and family. But unfortunately, some of them would soon have to say a goodbye to WhatsApp, or either they will need to stroke themselves towards a better and foremost updated Android, iOS or Windows based device. The announcement for the same was made officially by WhatsApp, at their blog. Looking forward, the team wants to make efforts towards the most used mobile platforms, including Android.

WhatsApp To End Support For Several Platforms

So here is the list of mobile platforms, which will have their support end-up soon:

  • BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10
  • Nokia S40
  • Nokia Symbian S60
  • Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
  • Windows Phone 7.1

WhatsApp has also made an official comment, about why it has sorted out with this decision. Though it was a hard one to make, but I believe, It is essential at the same time.

This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp. If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end of 2016 to continue using WhatsApp.

So let me ask: Is your tenderness enough to snap on to a better device, just for the sake of WhatsApp? Let us know via the comments.
