Earlier this year, WhatsApp announced that they would no longer be supporting BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 handsets by the end of 2016. Well it seems the pleas and tweets of various users who were unhappy with the news were considered.
As noted in their FAQ section and through a new app update available on BlackBerry 10, WhatsApp has quietly let users know the support will be extended until June 30, 2017. The new update for the BlackBerry 10 version is available through BlackBerry World right now. BlackBerry lovers may have to wait to see what happens or switch to other BlackBerry devices running on the Android OS.
