Just yesterday, the Canadian smartphone maker BlackBerry officially announced its quarterly report for the fourth quarter of its fiscal year 2014. The company did make some of the announcements pertaining to its popular instant messaging app the BBM.
To be more precise, the company has reiterated plans to bring BBM to Windows Phone, after officially confirming them this last month during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. The smartphone maker also announced that the BBM app and service will come pre-loaded on Nokia Lumia devices in certain markets, following the official release on the Windows Phone platform.
The app has already been proven one of the favorites among the current lot of similar apps. Currently it has about 113 million registered users and at 85 million monthly active users. However, there is no confirmation when the app will be released for the Lumia devices but second quarter of BlackBerry's current fiscal year is what reports online suggest.
Moreover, things will be even clearer may be at the Microsoft BUILD conference where it will announce the company's latest Windows Phone 8.1 build.
BBM is available for the owners of Android, BlackBerry, and iOS devices, and it is also available on Nokia X devices, which run a forked flavor of Google's mobile operating system. BlackBerry might also release the service on desktop, which will certainly ensure wider reach, especially if it features syncing with mobile devices.
