Voice & Video Chats Coming To BBM For Android Soon
Finally, BBM has arrived and is now working on most Android devices after a very long wait filled with mind blowing speculations.
People have wondered if the incorporation of BBM into Android will just be as stale as sending and receiving messages, the Canadian company has come out to reveal that not only will the BBM app continue to be free for all, they plan on adding more features to the BBM for Android versions too.
With the Blackberry making headlines as a result of dwindling profits and now, the acceptance of their BBM on other platforms asides the Blackberry platform, one will think Blackberry might want to place a price tag on the BBM app as a result of its success.
Not so, according to Bocking, as the company has other sources in mind. Particularly, it is mulling over new premium features such as YouTube-like BBM Channels that it plans to launch in the near future.
Should rumors of BlackBerry’s financial problems and eventual acquisition turn out to be true, then BBM users might face new owners who would not be so keen on keeping BBM free, or even alive.
Users of the service on Android and iOS will soon be on the same level as BlackBerry users as the BBM app on those platforms will be getting video and voice chats within months, according to BlackBerry executive VP for BBM Andrew Bocking in an interview with CBC News.
