BlackBerry provides new BBM version for iOS and Android users
BlackBerry has announced that Android and iOS users will be eligible for its new version of BBM which includes free voice call capability.
The app will be available from today, and allows users to make voice calls to BBM contacts for free as long as they have Wifi or data connection. They will also be able to present their live location to contacts via Glympse and take advantage of the new 'one-click' sharing option for photos documents or voice notes.
In addition, customers will also be able to use BBM channels which lets users interact with each other based on topics that interest them.
BlackBerry president of global enterprise solutions, John Sims, said: 'BBM continues to deliver new functionality as a premier messaging platform that provides a simple and effective way to stay connected. Today’s announcement gives Android and iPhone customers the rich experience of BBM Voice and BBM Channels – two great ways to connect with friends, family and colleagues, to build out communities around shared interests, and to follow your favourite people and brands. BBM continues to quickly evolve as a social mobile platform for consumers as well as for business customers through innovative features that give you great new ways to connect and share with each other.’
