If you are an avid WhatsApp user and using one of the older versions of BlackBerry, Windows Phone or Symbian, you are out of luck.
If you are still using a BlackBerry smartphone or clinging to an old Symbian-based Nokia phone, it’s high time you may want to consider switching to Android or iOS. Well, your favorite instant messaging application, WhatsApp, is going to end support for BlackBerry, Symbian and even Windows Phone 7.1.
WhatsApp announced it will be ending support for BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Android 2.1 and Android 2.2, and Windows Phone 7.1 – by the end of 2016.
Why is WhatsApp doing this? The reason is very simple — most of the mobile users across the world have shifted to Android and iOS smartphones. WhatsApp elaborates the time it had launched the app in 2009, about 70 percent of smartphones then ran on BlackBerry and Nokia’s Symbian.
But as of now Google,Apple and Microsoft account for 99.5 percent of sales, which back then had then mere 25 percent of the share. WhatsApp is now looking at the future, and wants to channelize its focus on the current and possible future mobile operating systems, and their updates.
“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,” WhatsApp said on its website.
If you are using devices based on these operating systems, you can’t really do much than upgrade to the latest Android, iOS or the new Windows Mobile 10 operating systems.
While BlackBerry users can use the BBM, considering that it is a cross platform messaging platform right. But it is highly unlikely that all of your friends might be using the BlackBerry Messenger. Symbian users can either use apps such as Nimbuzz, which is available for almost all platforms. But these alternatives are unlikely to ensure WhatsApp-like instant messaging or have all contacts with same instant messaging application.
Back in March, WhatApp started rolling out voice calling functionality to Android users. The company updated their iOS application next to bring the much awaited feature to the vast number of users of Apple’s hardware. Today, the company is finally bringing voice calling to WhatsApp users on Microsoft’s Windows Phone platform.

Data charges may apply.You can now send audio files (available on Windows Phone 8.1+)Notifications for calls and chats are show separately on top left.
In typical fashion, users of Windows Phone devices are used to being left out of features so it is nice to see support for the platform. The delayed update also brings additional functionality in the form of the ability to send audio files. WhatsApp voice calling enables users to make free calls over WiFi or cellular data between WhatsApp users across platforms.
