WhatsApp peaces out firstNow, as WhatsApp celebrates their seventh birthday, they’ve announced that they will no longer be supporting the app on BlackBerrys, including the BlackBerry 10, among other antique operating systems. The entire availability of the app on the BlackBerry was less than half of WhatsApp's "age," and the question stands: will there be anyone left on BlackBerry's operating system to mourn the loss of the most popular chat app in the world?My guess is no, for two reasons:
- First, the people that still use a BlackBerry are likely fans of the device, and they can still contact their friends through BBM (which is still available on Android and iOS) or other messaging apps.
- Second - and this is more important - BlackBerry supports Android apps, and the company is actually shifting towards Android as of late. Their latest phone is the BlackBerry Priv, which runs Android apps perfectly because it actually is an Android phone.
