Gmail App for Blackberry End of Life announcement

Editions affected: G Suite, G Suite, Government, and Education

Beginning November 22, 2011, we will end support for the Gmail App for BlackBerry (installed native app). Over this past year, we've focused efforts on building a great Gmail experience in the mobile browser and will continue investing in this area.

Users may continue to use the app, if installed, however it will not be supported by Google, or available for download starting November 22. BlackBerry users can continue to access Gmail through the mobile web app at in their BlackBerry web browser.

Alternatively, BlackBerry users can set up their devices using BlackBerry Internet Service (BIS), which is part of the standard BlackBerry service plan. BIS works with the Email, Calendar, and Contacts apps on BlackBerry, and syncs with G Suite email, calendar, and contacts. Blackberry Internet Service is provided by RIM and mobile carriers. For information and support, please contact RIM.


Are any other products affected by this end of life?
No, only the download link for the Gmail app for BlackBerry is being removed, and we are ceasing development on the Gmail app for BlackBerry to focus on the mobile browser experience. G Suite, Government, and Education customers using Connector for BlackBerry Enterprise Server will continue to be supported.
My users have installed the app and want to continue to use it. What resources are available to them?
Starting November 22, 2011, the product will be unsupported, but you can continue to consult the BlackBerry Mobile Device Setup Guide for setup and troubleshooting help. Please note this guide will not be maintained or enhanced.
