WhatsApp’s support for BlackBerry platform extended yet again

Back in February last year, WhatsApp announced that it will stop supporting versions of BlackBerry OS – including BlackBerry 10 – by the end of 2016. That, however didn’t happen, and the date was pushed back to June 30, 2017.

Now, the Facebook-owned service has confirmed that the support has been extended yet again – till 31 December 2017 this time.

In fact, WhatsApp’s Blackberry client has started receiving a new update, with change-log clearly saying: changed client end-of-life date to December 31, 2017.

Aside from BlackBerry, support for the Nokia S40 has also been extended to end of this year. The app, however, will stop working on Nokia S60 devices after June 30 2017.
