WhatsApp Extends Support For Blackberry Users till 'end of 2017'

Ditching the news out last year 2016 that WhatsApp will end support for Blackberry at the end of 2016 made a lot of Blackberry user to dump their devices for a better OS platform. This is not the first time WhatsApp will be extending support for Blackberry phones even though you can vividly count the number of people currently using Blackberry devices.

Earlier, WhatsApp.nl  reported that WhatsApp for  BlackBerry 10 (and BlackBerry OS7+) would be extended until the end of 2017, instead of the initial reported June 30.

The good news is, an update confirming the extension has been rolling out of WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10 which confirms the  news officially extending the support  as the change log notes read 'changed client end-of-life date to December 31, 2017'.

So if you are still a fan of Blackberry phones and you still have Blackberry 10 at your possession, you can continue using your WhatsApp till the end of 2017. 

However, S40 users have also been given more time and have had their end date extended as well. But S60 ends June 30th.
