And so it’s official. BBM for both Android and iOS will be rolling out this week, this weekend to be exact.
BlackBerry made the big announcement over on their official blog (check it out here).
BBM for Android will begin its global debut on September 21, 7am EDT, and is compatible with ‘droids running on ICS and Jelly Bean.
BBM for iOS, meanwhile, will roll out the next day, September 22, and is compatible with iPhones running on either iOS 6 or iOS 7.
As for features, here’s the initial feature set line-up as posted on their blog:
If you don’t have friends/family using BBM, feel free to pass on this one because that’s its only real come-on – getting you connected to the BBM network.
If you’re on the hunt for a serious messaging app, you can try Facebook Messenger, GroupMe and/or Hangouts. What I love about these three apps is they come with web support. Meaning, you can still be kept in the loop and enjoy chatting, even without your trusty smartphone by your side.
Now, can BBM do that? ‘Nuff said!
