With a New Whatsapp Updates a Whatsapp Will Not Run Many Smartphones From 2017. WhatsApp extends support for BlackBerry, Nokia until July 2017 WhatsApp support for mobile devices Earlier this week WhatsApp turned seven years old. It has been an amazing journey and in the coming months we’re putting an even greater emphasis on security features and more ways to stay in touch with the people that you care about. Earlier this year, WhatsApp announced the discontinuation of its services for older smartphones by the end of 2016.
But if you have a Nokia S40, a Symbian S60 or a BlackBerry OS (including BB10) device, fret a little less — WhatsApp announced it will continue support for your device through June 30, 2017.
But anniversary dates are also an opportunity to look back. When we started WhatsApp in 2009, people’s use of mobile devices looked very different from today. The Apple App Store was only a few months old. About 70 percent of smartphones sold at the time had operating systems offered by BlackBerry and Nokia. Mobile operating systems offered by Google, Apple and Microsoft – which account for 99.5 percent of sales today – were on less than 25 percent of mobile devices sold at the time.
As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use. So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on the following mobile platforms:
- BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10
- Nokia S40
- Nokia Symbian S60
- Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
- Windows Phone 7
- iPhone 3GS/iOS 6
The mobile platforms and their versions which would not be supported by WhatsApp in 2017 are:
– Android : Android 2.1 and Android 2.2
– Windows : Windows Phone 7
– iPhone: 3GS/ iOS 6
App support will be extended for the following devices until June 2017:
– Blackberry 10 running on BBOS
– Nokia S40 running on Symbian S40

While these mobile devices have been an important part of our story, they don’t offer the kind of capabilities we need to expand our app’s features in the future.
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.
UPDATE: WhatsApp is extending support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40 and Nokia Symbian S60 until June 30, 2017.
