Farewell To The Messenger Service That Started It All Off
Farewell To The Messenger Service That Started It All Off

BBM consumer service closing on 31 May 2019.

Anyone who wants to BBM a friend or colleague, today is the day to do it. The stunning news to Blackberry users who love their BBM is now just sinking in. But the statement below tells the story and there is no way of getting around the outcome.

We Poured Our Hearts Into It

Three years ago, we set out to reinvigorate BBM consumer service, one of the most loved instant messaging applications, as a cross-platform service where users can not only chat and share life experiences, but also consume content and use payment services.

We poured our hearts into making this a reality, and we are proud of what we have built to date.

The technology industry however, is very fluid, and in spite of our substantial efforts, users have moved on to other platforms, while new users proved difficult to sign on.

Though we are sad to say goodbye, the time has come to sunset the BBM consumer service, and for us to move on.

We are grateful for your support and wish to thank everyone, especially our users, partners, and employees, for being part of the BBM consumer service journey.

We hope you will cherish many fond memories of BBM consumer service that helped shape messenger platforms to become what they are today.
