Talk only to those who you want to contact, discover the new BlackBerry Messenger for Android and iOS
Here it is! The official BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) is now available for Android and iOs as well. However, if you're downloading it right now, there's a wait list given the large amount of success, so you might need to wait a while in order to use it.
BBM was very popular on BlackBerry phones because it allowed communication between their users in a very easy and comfortable way. But then, smartphones spread and What'sApp became the most successful instant message application, as it could be downloaded in all three main platforms.
BBM allows you, of course, to stay connected with your friends and to see if your messages have been delivered and read. You can also create group chats, share pictures, documents and voice files, there are no limitations.
While the functioning is the same (it uses PINs instead of phone numbers so it's more private), design has been enhanced and now it's much more usable.
BlackBerry Limited is the developer of BBM, which has just arrived to Android and iOS. Apparently, there have been some problems regarding the mail activation and we hope everything's fixed soon.
Chat with friends on Android, BlackBerry and iPhone:
• BBM is always on and always connected – no app to open
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• Share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
• See when contacts are responding to your message
• Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
BBM lets you protect your privacy. You control it:
• You chose how to share your information - BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it's more private, and you always control who can contact you
• You chose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you
Chat and Share with many at once:
• Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists, and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren't part of your own BBM contact list.
• Multi-person chats – Invite multiple contacts to have a chat together.
• Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.
Create your own BBM profile:
• Post a profile picture using images, pictures or even animated pictures (GIFs).
• Update your status to let people know what you’re up to or how you feel
