BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) Now Coming to iOS and Android

The BBM is the BlackBerry OS's main selling proposition and has paved way for the success of similar apps like iMessage, Viber, Line, or WhatsApp. BlackBerry's CEO Thorsten Heins just announced that the BBM messaging service will be available as a third-party app to the two most popular smartphone platforms: the iOS and Android.


Initially, BBM on iOS and Android will only support BBM chats, multi-person chats, voice note sharing, and BlackBerry Groups, where BBM users are able to set up groups to share calendar, photos, files, etc. BlackBerry also has plans to expand the functionality of the iOS and Android apps with some of the new BBM features such as voice and video calls, screenshare, and channels.

The BBM app will be available to iPhones, running at least iOS 6, and to Android smartphones, running at least Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.


Til then...
