It's unclear if BBM users will be able to port their accounts or data over to the enterprise version.
But the service is no end altogether users can download BBMe from the Google Play store, as the enterprise version is still offered however there is no version for iOS. Initially debuting in 2008, BBM was only available on BlackBerry devices. Then the smartphones made the appearance and the sales of the Blackberry phones dropped steeply and the company kept changing its strategy before opting for Android as the OS.
The move follows Emtek's announcement Thursday that it will shut down the once popular BlackBerry Messenger service on May 31. This is what the company has now explained in its blogpost, mentioning that it stays committed to the messenger service but its efforts at keeping the service alive have not been successful. 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 hard to sign on.Читайте также: Benitez: I want to win the Champions League again
It's not clear how many consumer users of the BBM service are out there waiting for a lifeline.
"We hope you will cherish many fond memories of BBM consumer service that helped shape messenger platforms to become what they are today".
The security software company announced Thursday that it is opening up the enterprise version of BBM - dubbed BBM Enterprise, or BBMe, and intended for corporations - to individual users. Once upon a time, BBM used to be the largest messaging app, even on non-BlackBerry devices. The catch here is that the app is free for the first year and will set users back $2.49 for a six-month subscription afterward.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
