Blackberry to Eliminate Support for Blackberry OS and Other Old mobile Platforms

No doubt, Blackberry Operating system is still hot favorite to a lot of people in mobile phone industry but the Canadian company has adopted Android OS for its survival in the arena. The adoptation of Google's mobile OS was a sign that the company had no more faith in its own Operating System. Now Whatsapp has also announced to drop support for BB OS by the end of 2016.

The famous Canadian Mobile Phone maker company Blackberry is in crisis for a couple of previous years and it is struggling hard to keep its business secure with different tactics. Last year the company has announced its first Device with Android Operating system, The Blackberry PRIV. It seems that company has no interest to flourish its home make operating system the BB OS.

So other companies are also thinking that Blackberry OS has no more charm for the users. Therefore WhatsApp will no longer work on most BlackBerry devices, even those loaded with the company's latest mobile platform Blackberry OS 10.3 by the end of 2016. In a blog post, the WhatsApp team reminisced about their launch back in 2009, when most smartphones were either BlackBerry or Nokia.

It was a different time, and the Facebook-owned app's developers have to cut them off, because the platforms "don't offer the kind of capabilities [they] need to expand [their] app's features in the future."

Besides dropping support for BB's OS, the app will also stop work on Nokia S40 and Symbian S60 devices, Android 2.1 and 2.2, as well as Windows Phone 7.1 devices by the end of the year. That said, you don't have to abandon BlackBerry completely if you're a loyal BB and WhatsApp user. Don't forget that the Canadian company released an Android phone called the Priv in 2015, and it plans to release at least one more device running Google's OS.
