BlackBerry’s BBM arriving on Android and iOS on September 21

BlackBerry Messenger BBM Android iOS iPhone iPad iPod touch

Good news to Android and iOS (and former BlackBerry) users! The ever familiar BBM is set to arrive on Android on September 21 and on iOS on September 22. This is the first time the popular messaging service goes cross-platform.

BBM for Android and iOS features BBM Chat where you can, well, chat with other people on BBM. You can also send files such as photos and videos instantly. It also lets you know when your message is delivered and if your friend has read it. BBM Group lets you start group chats and can accommodate up to 30 users.

Want to send a message to all your contacts in an instant? There’s Broadcast Message for that. Also, you can post status messages and update your profile picture in the Updates section of your profile. And, last but not the least, you get your own BBM PIN that you give out to others so they can add you while maintaining your personal information like email and phone number.

Moreover, BlackBerry plans to add BBM Video Calling and BBM Voice to its Android and iOS apps in a future update.

You will be able to download BBM for Android starting 7PM on September 21 from the Google Play Store. The iOS version will be release at 12:01AM on September 22 in the App Store.
