A new WhatsApp version has been released for BlackBerry 10 OS devices. We agree that this operating system is not updated as often as the Android or iOS, but this is something normal, as the two mentioned operating systems are way more popular than the OS developed by BlackBerry.
The new WhatsApp 2.12.280.2 comes with some new features which include: support for web link previews in messages, support for additional web client features and updated contact information. The new WhatsApp version also comes with fixes for automated nightly backup that could start in the middle of a Voice Call.
WhatsApp 2.12.280.2 also comes with performance improvements and it also fixes some bugs that were reported by the users or found by the developers. Keep in mind that the WhatsApp 2.12.280.2 is currently in BETA phase, which means that there are high chances that you will find some bugs and other issues. If you find any, please report them so that the developers can fix them before they release the next stable version of WhatsApp for BlackBerry 10.

It seems that the developers of WhatsApp have understood that they need also to update the less-popular mobile operating system. We agree that there are not so many people that are still using BlackBerry 10 devices, but they should still support this operating system.
