Whatsapp has grown to become a very reliable and trending means of sending fast messages since it’s inception. The platform is really awesome allowing you to share videos, music files, eBooks, voice messages and predominantly fast messages. The rate at which whatsapp delivers the messages sent by users to the recipients is much faster compared to facebook, groups created on whatsapp enables the circulation of information across all geographical areas to the members. Almost all departments in schools and colleges do have whatsapp groups through which they keep themselves updated with the latest information pertaining to academics. Unfortunately, with the arising need for whatsapp to upgrade their services, they have decided to scrape out some devices which did support whatsapp before. This deactivation of whatsapp on most mobile devices will take effect on the 31st of December 2016 which means that at exact 12.00am, whatsapp may likely not work on these affected devices.
