Emtek has pulled the plug on BlackBerry Messenger. The company announced that it would shut down the consumer service, which has been steadily losing users and failing to attract new ones.
The company faced plenty of competition, and at various points it sued Twitter, Facebook and Snap over patent infringement. In 2017, the company surprised many by adding Uber to the BBM app.
