BlackBerry is launching the popular BlackBerry Messenger service on Android and iOS over the weekend. BBM will be arriving on Google Android this Saturday and iOS this Sunday.
?We?re committed to making the BBM experience on other platforms as fully featured as we can,? stated BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins. ?We?ll start with messaging and groups, but we?ll add voice later on. ? BB10 is such a strong platform that we are confident it can become an independent messaging solution.?
We first reported that BBM will be coming to Android and iOS this past May. One of the reasons for the delay is Apple’s rigorous approval process.
