BlackBerry Messenger shuts down

BlackBerry Messenger shuts down


The shut down is as a result of the service constantly losing users to competitions and failing to attract new ones. At some point, the company sued Twitter, Facebook and Snap over patent infringement.

Emtek wrote in a blog post last month.
