Die-hard Blackberry supporters are slowly starting to run out of ways to defend their long standing relationship with their beloved mobile devices after news that Whatsapp and now Facebook will stop Blackberry support by the end of the year. It was announced about a month ago that Whatsapp will no longer work on your Blackberry by the end of 2016 HERE and it’s no surprise that Facebook (who owns Whatsapp) is following suit. Facebook and Facebook messenger will also not work on your Blackberry by the end of the year.
This from Blackberry:
“The app landscape continues to evolve, and in ways that are not always within our control. Recently, Facebook made the decision to discontinue support of their essential APIs for BlackBerry and WhatsApp announced they would end support for BlackBerry 10 and BBOS at the end of 2016.
We are extremely disappointed in their decision as we know so many users love these apps. We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands” [BB]
