WhatsApp has announced that it will stop support for BlackBerry OS, BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, and Nokia Symbian S60 from June 30. Last year, the company had said that it was dropping support for certain older operating systems and it seems like it is coming through with its promise. The company has already dropped support for devices running Android older than v2.3.3, Windows Phone 7, or devices running iOS 6 or older. 

However, this move by WhatsApp shouldn’t affect too many users. According to a report by Gartner, BlackBerry along with other OS’ made up a miniscule portion of the market in the fourth quarter of last year. Windows was third with a total market share of 0.3 percent. iOS and Android together took up 99.6 percent of the market. Android lead the way with a market share of 81.7 percent, while iOS had a market share of 17.9 percent. If you are amongst those users who are one of the few users still clinging on to their old BlackBerry or phones, then you might want to consider switching soon.
