WhatsApp to Stop Working on These Platforms After 31st December

WhatsApp will stop support for a number of platforms after
December 31, 2017. The messaging app will drop support for ‘BlackBerry OS’,
‘BlackBerry 10’, ‘Windows Phone 8.0’ and older platforms from December 31,
2017.

 WhatsApp says  in a blog post that users on these particular
platforms will not be able to create new accounts, nor re-verify existing
accounts once the company ends support.
WhatsApp had earlier announced it will stop support for many
of these older platforms. End of support does not mean a user will lose access
to their WhatsApp account. WhatsApp says users can continue using the app on
their phone, but should not expect any future security updates or new features.

While Windows 8 will be axed down once 2018 begins; WhatsApp
will continue support for Windows 8.1 version and higher devices, even though
Microsoft itself has admitted that Windows Mobile is dead.
To recall, WhatsApp had extended support for both platforms
in June this year. At the time, WhatsApp had also revealed that the app will
stop working for phones running Nokia S40 will be stopped from December 31,
2018. The app will stop working on phones running Android 2.3.7 and older
(Gingerbread) will be stopped from February 1, 2020. The messaging app became
unavailable on Nokia phones running Symbian S60, from June 30, 2017.
 In BlackBerry’s case,
the company has itself confirmed it will no longer be manufacturing or
launching new smartphones, and the BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS have been
abandoned. 
However, if you are still using Blackberry 10, you can download older whatsapp for your device here.

      However, the update will take effects from January 1st 2018.

      So the information is correct; but you didn't comprehend the information.
