Facebook has decided to drop support for its apps on BlackBerry’s platform, the apps will only be available on BlackBerry’s Android powered Priv smartphone in the future.
Facebook will discontinue support for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS on their own app and also on their WhatsApp application.
The app landscape continues to evolve, and in ways that are not always within our control. Recently, Facebook made the decision to discontinue support of their essential APIs for BlackBerry and WhatsApp announced they would end support for BlackBerry 10 and BBOS at the end of 2016.
We are extremely disappointed in their decision as we know so many users love these apps. We fought back to work with WhatsApp and Facebook to change their minds, but at this time, their decision stands (but let them know how you feel on social media, using the hashtag #ILoveBB10Apps). Despite this, we have worked hard to ensure our end users have the best experience in light of this decision, and are continuing to search for alternate solutions.
