Time To Say GoodBye To BlackBerry Messenger

BlackBerry consumer version is going to vanish, says Emtek

 GoodBye to BlackBerry Messenger

Only around a month ago did Emtek announce that BlackBerry Messenger application would soon be discontinued. But who would’ve thought it would be this soon that this once ubiquitous messaging app would be plugged out on the 31st of May, 2019?

BBM was launched in 2005 and only three years later, Indonesia-based tech conglomerate, Emtek 11, acquired BlackBerry Messenger. Till the time it was not available on other platforms, all BlackBerry devices were sold majorly because of BlackBerry messaging services.

In 2013, BlackBerry messaging services were made available on various other platforms, such as iOS and Android. But, sadly, due to the ever-growing, soul-crushing competition between other messaging platforms, BBM lost its popularity.

Emtek posted in their blog post last month.

Before BBM services vanish forever, users can still download their files, photos, and videos. The BBM enterprise will still be available for business users for a nominal amount of $2.49 after the first year.

The death of the consumer version of BBM can be seen as the end of an era of classic messaging services.
