The developers of the app say that they will no longer release new versions for the mentioned platforms. Therefore, it is important to know, especially for the customers going to download Whatsapp for Blackberry that some features and functions of WhatsApp may stop working on the devices running Windows and BlackBerry operating systems.
Meanwhile, WhatsApp also provides certain tips and advice in order to save as many customers as possible. According to the developers’ recommendations, the owner of Windows phone, as well as BlackBerry one can follow next pieces of advice:
- In case the customer uses BlackBerry device and has the desire to continue utilizing WhatsApp it is highly recommended to change the platform and start using Android device.
- When it comes to Nokia, WhatsApp will be providing technical support to these devices all the way until the very end of 2018.
- Try to create a new profile on the brand new device. However, according to WhatsApp rules, the application can be only installed and activated with only one number on one device.
