[Tech Talk]: BBM Coming To iOS And Android Plus WHAT?!?!



Yup, Looks Like it’s True!!! Personally I think it’s BB letting go of control since they have no burn out there, and this is the beginning of making individual digital properties valuable, so when they begin this fire sale, some bigger company will buy the pieces from them, smart! I can’t front, I used to Love BBM, and when it drops for the Right OS’s, I’ll get it on Both My iPhone And Android!!

The team here at BlackBerry has definitely been working hard to bring the much-adored BBM experience to a wider group of mobile users. In a recent press release at BlackBerry Live 2013, Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President, Software Product

Management and Ecosystem, at BlackBerry had this to say:
“For BlackBerry, messaging and collaboration are inseparable from the mobile experience, and the time is definitely right for BBM to become a multi-platform mobile service. BBM has always been one of the most engaging services for BlackBerry customers, enabling them to easily connect while maintaining a valued level of personal privacy. We’re excited to offer iOS and Android users the possibility to join the BBM community.”

They also say they still have 51 Million active user’s with 10 BILLION send/receive messages, Those are incredible #’s, especially for a device that is dwindling into Non existence.

Today, BlackBerry also announced BBM Channels, a new social engagement platform within BBM that will allow customers to connect with the businesses, brands, celebrities and groups they are passionate about. BlackBerry plans to add support for BBM Channels as well as voice and video chatting for iOS and Android later this year, subject to approval by the Apple App Store and Google Play. If approved by Apple and Google, the BBM app will be available as a free download in the Apple® App StoreSM and Google Play store. Additional details about system requirements and availability will be announced closer to the launch.
