Sharing is caring!

Unfortunately, before the end of the year, the developers of WhatsApp will stop supporting some operating systems, such as: BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Windows Phone 7.1, Android 2.2 and Android 2.1. But, if your device is running on Windows Phone 8 and later, you will continue to receive updates.

We agree that there are not many people who are using these operating systems to talk on WhatsApp, but that doesn’t mean that the popular mobile messaging application will not lose some users once they will discontinue this application for the aforementioned platforms. However, keep in mind that the application will still function on these operating systems, but they will not be updated anymore with new features or options.

The latest WhatsApp version for Windows Phone devices is 2.12.276 and it is now available for download. The new update comes with message previews, improvements for notifications and more. You will notice that the WhatsApp notifications are cleared from the Action Center once you open the application. In addition, the live tile of WhatsApp will now show previews of the messages you didn’t check. The new update also comes with improvements in video recording and, from now on, in order to record you will just need to tap and hold. You will also find over 100 new emojis in the new WhatsApp 2.12.276 update, which you will be able to use while writing messages to your friends using this application.
