Despite having recently announced plans to kill support for hundreds of devices, the Facebook-owned messenger has had a last minute change of heart.

With support for BlackBerry and Nokia devices having been scheduled to be knocked on the head by the end of 2016 , WhatsApp has now reversed its decision.

Instead, WhatsApp has confirmed that support for BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry OS, Nokia Series 40 and Sybian Series 60 based handsets will be extended until June 30, 2017.

Sure, that s only six months away, but if you re still rocking one of these aged handsets, that s six crucial months to score yourself and upgrade or make a casual migration to a new messaging platform.

Despite offering a stay of execution for some devices, not all platforms are escaping the cull.
