BBM Finally Closed Operation and Say Goodbye

Those using the enterprise version of the app, called BBMe, will continue operations as normal. If you really miss BBM and want to keep using it, you can also download the enterprise version on Android and iOS for free, but there is a $2.50 subscription fee for every six months. BBMe does offer end-to-end encryption and message editing / un-sending where the consumer version didn’t, so it may be worth the dollars if you’re still an avid BlackBerry Messenger believer.

But if, like most people, you’ve already moved on, then let us all remember a moment in time when it was considered cool to tell people to find you on an app using a convoluted mixture of numbers and letters as a way to add friends.

So So sad for BBM to close operation and say goodbye.
