Whatsapp services will be stopped for Nokia Symbian OS and Blackberry OS users from June 30th
The popular social media messenger Whatsapp decided to end their messenger service to outdated Nokia Symbian OS and Blackberry OS users. So if you’re one of Symbian and Blackberry users Whatsapp messenger services are no longer available to you from this June 30th, 2017. Here’s the list of Nokia Symbian OS operated phones which will be terminated from Whatsapp services such as Nokia S40, Nokia S60, and the Blackberry 10 mobile phones.
The sudden step is taken by Facebook-owned Whatsapp social messenger service in last November, in which all aged operating systems such as Nokia’s Symbian and Blackberry OS will be terminated from using Whatsapp messaging services. In last December Whatsapp also ends support for old Android 2.2 froyo, Windows phone 7 and iOS6 operating systems.
Whatsapp services will be stopped?
Facebook-owned Whatsapp Company had announced last year that the company would stop support for few platforms, but it extended the termination program to June 2017 because of the Blackberry disappointment about the Whatsapp program termination. Whatsapp group responded to blackberry’s disappointment statement, said that the outdated operation systems don’t have the capability to offer more expandable app features to users in the future.
On its support page, Whatsapp explained that “Aged/outdated platforms don’t offer Advanced Capabilities, so it will become difficult to expand our app’s features in the future. If anyone using one of these affected mobile devices, we are recommending you to upgrade to a newer OS version or a newer Android OS 2.3.3+, iPhone is running iOS 7+, or Windows Phone 8+ OS so that you can continue using Whatsapp messenger services.”
Whatsapp advised the above stated operating system users should upgrade to latest Android, iOS, and Windows OS versions before June 30th after that the Whatsapp messenger services will be completely stopped for both Symbian and Blackberry OS users.
The company also mentioned that old Symbian and Blackberry users don’t have chat backup option to restore their chat history, but by requesting to Whatsapp chat support user will get an email attachment through which you can restore your old chat history on new operating systems.
With the step taken by Facebook-owned Whatsapp group, all Symbian and Blackberry users don’t have access to use Whatsapp messenger service from June 30th, and this step affects the decrease of Nokia Symbian, and Blackberry OS operated mobile phones throughout the world. Both Nokia and Blackberry companies have some customers, but with the Whatsapp sudden step, these two mobile brands will lose their popularity.
