Google Android and Apple's iOS might soon remain the only relevant mobile operating systems available in the wild, and PayPal's decision to drop support for its app for a few mobile platforms seems to confirm this. Unfortunately, the company has decided to stop updating the PayPal app for BlackBerry, Amazon Fire, and Windows Phone devices as of June 30.

Although users of the PayPal app on Windows Phone and Amazon Fire will no longer be able to use it, they should simply access the service through a mobile browser. Even more, Outlook.com user can use the PayPal add-in to speed things up and send money directly from their inbox. At last, PayPal confirmed that "Blackberry users can also continue to use the BBM app to send peer-to-peer payments via PayPal."

By the end of June, Android 4.0.3+ devices and Apple devices with iOS 8.1 or later will be required to use PayPal 6.0 to be able to use the payment service.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
