WhatsApp will not work for these smartphones users after December 31, 2018

The few people still using Nokia Symbian S60 will have their support terminated on June 30, 2017. Earlier, WhatsApp had already stopped its function on Nokia phones running Symbian S60 in June 2017. So coming December 31, 2017, the popular messaging service will be off-bounds for devices running BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Windows Phone 8.0 and older. This means these platforms have already recieved extensions twice. The above development is however significant in that this brings the curtains down for WhatsApp on the legendary BlackBerry line-up of devices once and for all.

While Windows 8 will get axed once 2018 starts, WhatsApp will continue support for Windows 8.1 version and higher devices, even though Microsoft itself has admitted that Windows Mobile is dead. The best is yet to come as WhatsApp is working to introduce a mobile payments system soon. WhatsApp says users can continue using the app on their phone, but should not expect any future security updates or new features.
