WhatsApp will stop working on a number of platforms from December 31, the company has confirmed. The popular messaging service will stop working on devices that run Windows Phone 8.0, BlackBerry OS and BlackBerry 10 from December 31 this year.

“We will no longer actively develop for these platforms, some features may stop functioning at any time,” WhatsApp said. Earlier, Whatsapp rolled out some new features on the beta version which will soon make their way to the stable version of the app.

Back in June, WhatsApp extended support for both the platforms. At the time, the company said it will pull the plug from devices with Nokia S40 on December 31, 2018, while the phones running Android 2.3.7 or older will stop working from February 1, 2020. Phones running on Symbian S60 stopped supporting the messaging app from June 30, 2017. The support for Blackberry and Windows Phone doesn’t seem to have any further extension and will stop working on the mentioned date.

The Private replies feature will allow a user to reply privately to a group message. Now, a person in a group will get an option to message a particular member which other members can’t see. This feature was spotted in the WhatsApp Web version.
