    Google apps.

    The HUB Suite is very dated now, and is slowly breaking.

    When were the last updates for the Hub software?

    Kinda sad to see it go. It really helped me back in 2017 when I left BB10. But it became such a pile of crap when they ended sms support and a bunch of other integrations.

    BTW your frustrations should be with Google on the SMS stuff. That honestly didn't really bother me on Android with notifications and Messenges as it opens there on the swipe down or tap.

    I'm using A Pixel 4xl, with no BlackBerry software.

    The stock Google apps seem to work well for me.

    Google Apps plus the proprietary apps for respective email providers and Microsoft as well. I've personally never been an unknown third party app fan on any platform.

    I'm using my 3a more like a BBOS device since for me that's what I think of as productive. I wasn't ever a fan of BB10 which to me just imitated Android on the BBOS upgrade level.

    Mentally, the whole device has become the literal physical hub since it has so many additional communication functions in 2021 like Slack, Ring Central, Teams and Zoom that reminds me of BBM and other BBOS usage that evolved on Android but away from BlackBerry itself.

    Using HUB on my KEY2 Red Edition and Samsung TAB S5e works perfectly fine. Not breaking or broken.

    Apart from ignoring the question, I can't make heads or tails of this.

    Clearly he isn't....

    OP the apps will work, like most older apps... with some work and tweaking. But they are dated, last few updates have been minor bug fixes (or additions). I'd suggest you give them a try, and see for yourself if they are usable for you. But they aren't worth paying for at this point...

    But I "think" you'd fine using the default Google Suites a much better experience in 2021 and beyond.

    There have been 2 production updates in the last 21 months, and both of them were mainly about Android 11 compliance.

    It's too bad, since it used to get updated monthly when it was considered an active product.

    Unfortunately the Blackberry Suite of apps is not available on iOS and I can’t comment as to their functionality. However I do have a few colleagues still using the Suite on K1, K2 and other Android devices and have not heard this doom and gloom from them. Could this be more bias towards Blackberry Apps than actual fact?

    Ah, excellent. So every device is a hub now, but mentally. Makes sense.

    Microsoft isn't exactly on top of MS-DOS either. Is that also connected to Microsoft's abilities as a software developer.

    No idea why "the crew" has come out to champion this cause.

    Is the Suite getting long in the tooth with a complete lack of real development? Yes.

    Is the Suite losing ground with new email protocols? Yes.

    Is the Suite suffering from Google's sharing restrictions? Yes.

    But does the Suite continue to work for some people's needs? Sure.
