What­sApp is end­ing sup­port for Black­Berry

The Pak Banker - - BUSINESS -

The world of smart­phones looks very dif­fer­ent to the one What­sApp was born in seven years ago. To­day Black­Berry has ap­prox­i­mately 1% of the mar­ket, but in 2009 it was a world-lead­ing smart­phone ven­dor.

It made sense over the years for What­sApp to sup­port all the main mo­bile plat­forms in its ef­forts to be ac­ces­si­ble to ev­ery­one. Now the Face­book FB -0.12%-owned com­pany has de­cided that plat­form ubiq­uity is not worth the lim­i­ta­tions that can bring to de­vel­op­ing new fea­tures.
