Previously available only on BlackBerry devices, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) will be available from this Saturday, 21/09, on Android. The application can be downloaded for free from Google Play.
The company wants to take the opportunity to position itself ahead of the competition by offering its messenger on multiple platforms. BBM will be an instant chat app that will compete with other services like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp. Now with versions of the app for Android and iOS, BlackBerry seeks the lead in the segment. Two weeks ago, we already anticipated this release.
With BBM, in addition to WhatsApp style conversations, it is possible to exchange files such as photos and videos. You will be informed if the sent messages have been delivered and the person you are chatting with has read the message. There is a feature that lets you chat with multiple people at once, and you can send messages to all contacts at once.
Each user will be given a PIN code to ensure security and privacy, which means that you do not have to give their telephone number or email address to communicate with anyone.
The messaging app stands out for its security and stability. The Android version of BlackBerry Messenger will air on the 21st, a day before the iOS version. Looking forward to testing the news?
