Home » News » WhatsApp OS: it will still support Windows 10 mobile!

Older mobile platforms’ enthusiasts are in for a change in 2018. These changes include ending support for one of everyone’s favorite instant messaging services. From January 1, WhatsApp has planned to pull support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, and Windows Phone 8.0 and older versions.

The company announced that the users of these OSs wouldn’t be allowed to create new accounts and they won’t be able to re-verify their existing ones anymore. WhatsApp will still run normally if you already have it installed and activated on any of the platforms that we have mentioned above, but some of its features may stop anytime.

WhatsApp’s reason for cutting support for outdated platforms

WhatsApp stated that it decided to give up supporting older platforms because there will be some new features added to the latest versions of the app. These new functionalities will, of course, need modern technology and the older platforms don’t have it.

The company stated that older platforms lack the kind of features that the app requires in order to be able to expand its functionalities in the future.

Upgrade to a newer version of the OS of the outdated devices

If you’re using one of the devices that we mentioned, you are advised to upgrade to a more modern OS or a newer Android running OS 4.0, or iPhone running iOS 7+ or to Windows Phone 8.1+. This will be the only way to continue using WhatsApp.

WhatsApp will still support Windows 10 mobile

Regarding the Windows phone, the application will continue to support Windows 10 Mobile, even if the platform declined lately. On the other hand, unfortunately, there are a lot of users and developers who are dropping support for Windows mobile devices, and more and more important applications are leaving the platform. This is why we won’t be surprised if WhatsApp will decide to do the same thing shortly.
