ohmz, 27 Feb 2016Bb10 is 3 years old, it confuses me why whatsapp is dropping support.because blackberry itself is dropping support for bb10 by moving to android
Why the hell whatsapp is cracking down upon older os people! It's supporting android 2.3+ such an antique system but cannot support a relatively new OS like BB10. Other choices are ok but dropping support for BB is not done considering the fact the many people would have bought a passport or a classic recently. It's this high minded thinking that makes these companies die a sad end. Atleast at the very least they could have allowed the app to stay on all those platforms they are shutting down, without adding new features. Guess it's time other messaging apps are given a time to shine and show whatsapp it's not the King of the Hill.
P.S learn from Apple. That company may be high handed themselves but you boot up a iPhone 3GS even today and you can install apps on it as Apple allowed old gen iPhone users to download versions that last supported the old mobile.
Joneeep, 27 Feb 2016They won't be any advantage to other apps. Telegram doesn't exist on BB10, and BB10 is a dead... moreonce there is no support for Whatsapp for blackberry devices, the uses will switch social massaging platform to another one.... sorry I have never used blackberry soo I don't know what social apps they have on they're app store!! bad move from Whatsapp
Lol BlackBerry 10 supports android apps so I will install WhatsApp from third party app store.
Also, I think BB should make s third party app on their own, after all, it's very popular. That's one way of supporting the users of the platform. Microsoft does it, even if some apps look half baked, but at least they write it and the users have some options
shawn , 27 Feb 2016Whatsapp have just made many blackberry users to switch to much better telegram!! the decision... moreThey won't be any advantage to other apps.
Telegram doesn't exist on BB10, and BB10 is a dead platform that no one cares about anymore.
Even BlackBerry abandoned BB10
I won't buy a new phone to use what's app, I ll jut stop using what's app! What a stupied move
DE Rossi, 27 Feb 2016They just can not break the security of BB or spy on it. .this is their main reason..users of ... more500 million???
What the hell are you talking about?
According to BlackBerry last quarter results there were only 16 million BlackBerry users
Blackberry 10 also? Ohhh. Bad luck. Mobile os is shrinking to three os
(To the BB supporters)
Guys guys guys, chill.
Chill please. Relax.
Tell me, what can WhatsApp do if BB themselves are concentrating on Android phones. What can WhatsApp do if the news from Bb is that the platform will be supported, but no news of a new phone with BB10 platform?
Anyways, all you Bb guys, am sure you all know that WhatsApp can be side loaded on to the Passport from Google Play via Snap client
The worst move ever taken by Whatsapp.Droping support for BB OS is going to drop down users.
i know its harsh but even blackberry is making android os powered devices. that was a hint that thier own os is about to be dropped from the computing ecosystem. this could open doors to other messaging apps, should be fun to observe. :)
F U Whatsapp garbage app!
Long live BlackBerry and all other market underdogs that dont readily bend over at the government's whim.
