     BBM App For Android Coming On Sep 21, iPhone on Sep 22

     

    Back in May this year, the company made an announcement that it planned to provide its famed BBM to other platforms. The service has been considered as one of pioneers in the relam, serving as an inspiration to the likes of WhatsApp and others.

    BBM became famous since it was a unique tool that allowed users to send short text messages instantly without incurring costs. However, owing to the decline of users on the Balckberry platform and the rise of other messaging apps from Facebook and Apple, BBM has lost its charm over the last few years.

    The new app will offer features like BBM Chat, which will allow users to chat with friends across Android, Blackberry and iOS smartphones. The app will also allow users to send files, create group chats by choosing specific members and even broadcast messages.

    There will also be an excellent privacy feature that will go on help the app compete against Whats App. Each BBM user will receive a unique PIN, meaning that they won't have to share their phone numbers with new or casual contacts.

    Android users will be able to get the application on Saturday, while iPhone users can download it on Sunday.

    This news comes along with an announcement from Blackberry, where the company has said that it will trim 40 percent of its current workforce worldwide.
