When BlackBerry devices fell out of favor, BlackBerry aimed to keep BBM alive with an iOS app available since 2013. However, with messages, WhatsApp, WeChat and other messaging apps, BBM was struggling to keep up.
Three years ago, BlackBerry tried to revise BBM as a cross-platform messaging service to chat, view content, and use payment services, but it did not work.
and we are proud of what we have built so far.
However, the technology industry is very fluid, and despite our significant efforts, users have moved to other platforms while new users have difficulty logging on.
Although we have to say goodbye sadly, now is the time to stop the BBM Consumer Service prematurely.
BBM users who do not want to stop the service can save BBMe through Google Play because the enterprise version of the app is still available. There is no version for iOS, but CNET says that an iOS app is in the works.
