They plan to phase them out in favour of steering resources into the more popular Android and iOS versions of the app.

'If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone'. That means if you delete and reinstall it (or install it on a different phone), it will no longer allow you to verify your phone number and complete the setup process.

'This was a tough decision for us to make, but the right one in order to give people better ways to keep in touch with friends, family, and loved ones using WhatsApp.

WhatsApp was first launched in 2009 at a time when there was greater diversity in the operating systems used on smartphones. CrackBerry, an authority forum when it comes to reliable information that has to do with all BlackBerry devices also confirmed that the messaging app is still working on the device, but not for long.
