OFFICIAL: BlackBerry Messenger for Windows Phone will Launch This July
BlackBerry Messenger is an amazing instant messaging utility and since it was launched for Android and iPhone, iPad users, it has been downloaded by millions of users all over the world.
And this is something that Windows Phone users have been craving for quite a while, but now the wait is almost over!
BlackBerry Messenger or BBM as it is also known and widely referred to, will be launched this July for Windows Phone devices.
The information has been made public by BlackBerry’s boss himself, John Chen, at the company’s earnings call from yesterday.
Chen also announced a squarish looking smartphone that they are going to unveil this fall, called BlackBerry Passport.
Download BBM on your Windows Phone this July
BlackBerry launched BBM for iOS and Android in 2013 and we all knew it was only a matter of time before the messaging service arrived on Windows Phone, as BlackBerry (formerly RIM) has confirmed in February that it would arrive in 2014.
Thus, Windows Phone will be the fourth platform to host BBM, after its own BlackBerry 10, of course, iOS and Android. We are wondering whether the Canadian company could jump as far as releasing a standalone app for Windows 8 users, as well.
Recently, the BlackBerry Messenger app has been updated with free calling, a feature that has been widely requested by the users. Let’s hope hat the Windows Phone version of BBM will have exactly the same features as the original app.
