- BlackBerry has quietly revealed that its most prominent Android apps will no longer be supported.
- Apps like DTEK, Privacy Shade, and the Launcher will reach end-of-life status on August 31.
BlackBerry’s in-house mobile platforms (BlackBerry OS 7.1 and earlier, BlackBerry 10, and PlayBook OS) reached end-of-life status (EOL) on December 31, 2021. The company said that this meant calls, data, SMS, emergency calls, and more would no longer “reliably function.”
BlackBerry’s Android phones weren’t part of this announcement though, but a keen-eyed CrackBerry forum member (h/t: Liliputing) found that several Android apps are indeed reaching end-of-life status too.
