    Talk only to those who you want to contact, discover the new BlackBerry Messenger for Android and iOS

    • Manage who can contact you
    • Talk and send files, create group messages
    • High usability
    • Some problems with activation

    "Give me your PIN!"

    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.

    Note: Data charges may apply.
    * While these features are designed to remove the message or picture the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view, but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.
