BlackBerry users seem to be happy as WhatsApp resolved to retract their earlier decision on disconnecting Blackberry and other devices from its service by 31st December, 2016.
Recall that we posted on this blog sometime ago that WhatsApp will disconnect Blackberry and some Nokia devices from their service. Read Here
The affected devices are
Blackberry OS devices
Nokia Symbiam S60
Android devices running 2.2 and below
Windows Phone 7
iPhone 3GS/IOS 6 amongst others.
For what could be termed as season of laughter, WhatsApp has finally extended the deadline for disconnecting these devices from their service.
However, WhatsApp recently disclosed in their support that the new deadline has been shifted to 30th June, 2017. This would relief the panic of some affected persons and still grant others enough time and opportunity to get a new device that support WhatsApp.
