Finally! The news we’ve all been waiting for, BlackBerry is at last ready to resume its roll out for BBM for Android and iOS today. Blackberry stated that they will be releasing the BBM app to the App Store, Google Play and Samsung Apps portal within the next few hours. In order to prevent history from repeating it’s self, BlackBerry has to let those who officially signed up for the app in advance use BBM right away, while those who didn’t signup will be put on the wait-list. I hope they pull through this time because I am actually rooting for them. See the official blog post below.
This is the news you’ve been waiting for! I am thrilled to tell you that we are about to officially resume our rollout of BBM for Android and iPhone customers around the globe!* In the next few hours, people will start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to download.
The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone continues to be amazing. About six million people signed up for information about BBM at BBM.com. As you know, in just seven hours, about one million Android users were using the unreleased version of BBM for Android. What you don’t know is that more than one million people have found creative ways to “side load” BBM on their iPhone. This is incredible.
To help manage this unprecedented pent up demand for BBM, we are implementing a simple line-up system to ensure a smooth roll out. Here’s how it is going to work…
BBM Roll Out Details:
- Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
- Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
