WhatsApp will stop working on millions of phones in 2017.



If users want to continue using the messaging app, they will need to

upgrade their phones.



Expected changes coming to WhatsApp, which has more than one billion

users, will not be compatible with older devices.



By December 31 2017, the seven-year-old app will no longer work on

BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Android

2.1 and Android 2.2, Windows Phone 7 and the iPhone 3GS/iOS 6.



A WhatsApp spokesperson said:

'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.'



Adding: '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.



'If you use one of these affected mobile devices, we recommend

upgrading to a newer Android, iPhone, or Windows Phone before the end

of 2017 to continue using WhatsApp.'
