BBM for Android
BlackBerry hasn't yet revealed when it plans to launch BlackBerry Messenger on Android and iOS, saying only that the service will arrive on those platforms sometime this summer. We may not have to wait for an announcement from BlackBerry itself, though, as T-Mobile U.K. appears to have decided to take it upon itself to reveal the launch date for BBM on Android and iOS.
The official @TMobileUK Twitter account just sent out a message claiming that BBM will be made available to Android and iOS users on June 27. That's just three weeks from today, so it may not be long before existing BBM users see an influx of new friends and messages headed their way. It's worth noting that BlackBerry itself has yet to make any official announcements, though, so you may want to use a pencil rather than a pen when circling 6/27 on your calendar.
BlackBerry announced its plans to release BBM for Android and iOS at its BlackBerry Live conference last month. The apps are expected to feature several major BBM features at launch, including multi-user chats, video and voice messaging, BBM Groups and the ability to add contacts using PIN, email, SMS or QR codes. BlackBerry has said that BBM will be available to consumers running Android 4.0 or higher as well as iOS 6.0 or higher.
BBM on Android
The latest and most popular instant messaging service [Blackberry Messenger | BBM ] that has been the major reason behind blackberry operating system is to be launched on iOS and Android device respectively by this summer and the app is ultimately going to be free for both iOs and Android device said the C.E.O Thorsten Heins.
Although this might be seem surprise but BBM is at its peak to take its benefits to BB competitor of which are majorly the iOS and Android operating systems.
The C.E.O "Hein" further said that the company have the boldness to announce that the time has finally come for Blackberry messenger (BBM) to become a multi- platform for iOS and Android devices which he tag to be multiple messaging solution.
If you are a BBM user you must have by now known some keywords in your messenger like (D) and (R) representing delivered and read respectively. This BBM almost blew away the standard of text messages and it was obviously envied by other mobile platforms.
In the past years when Blackberry hits its rough patch, it was formally reported as one of the mobile platforms with bright spots. Though there were many calls at that time to make the BBM a multi-platform but the decision to make it single intense mobile platform was as a result of making Blackberry to stand out among the other mobile platforms in mobile market.
Apple as a competitor launched its own BBM messenger competitor with iMessage and other multi-platform such as whatsapp, viber and all the like which have arrived not quite long but have gained a millions users within the time.
Though Blackberry was almost out-shined by app like Whatsapp, and viber because of the fact that BBM is not multi-platform but not like BBM for Blackberry addict or users, nevertheless, Blackberry has chosen
its part to stand out amongst other mobile devices but now their bringing in their BBM to iOS and Android devices but I doubt it if the iOS and Android BBM app would be as perfect as Blackberry BBM.
You can now download an app called BBM for iPhone, and still use BBM and all its features directly from your iPhone. If you were worried about having to give up your groups, your calendar and your privacy you don’t have to in order to switch over to iPhone. It is more secure than the chat feature on iPhone. When you are logged in the chat feature works only from iPhone to iPhone otherwise you are simply sending a standard text. While the system might seem the same, it really isn’t as BBM gives you a unique identifier that keeps your information more secure. This is very important for many companies because it means you can go ahead and send account numbers and other sensitive information from phone to phone without too much concern.
