Google pulls plug on Gmail App for BlackBerry
With its attention now turned to "building a great Gmail experience in the mobile browser," Google issues an end-of-life proclamation for the native app.
Google is to stop supporting the native Gmail app for BlackBerry smartphones later this month.
The company said in an "end-of life announcement" that the app will be effectively killed off on November 22, as Google has "focused efforts on building a great Gmail experience in the mobile browser" instead. (See related: " ")
No one will be able to download the app from November 22 onward, although those who have already installed it will be able to continue to use it--just without any support from Google.
