BlackBerry Messenger / BBM for Android, iOS – Rumored Release Date


Summer came and went and now we’re taking our first steps into the next season which will bring us more rainy days and autumn leaves in the park; at least if you’re living in the same climate as I do. More to the point, the end of summer went past us and the BlackBerry Messenger / BBM for Android and iOS is still nowhere to be found.

We’ve discussed about the arrival of BBM on the two aforementioned platforms several times before (check out the BBM for Android preview) and today we’ll do the same. Unfortunately, the latest bits of information don’t look too good.

BlackBerry Messenger / BBM for Android and iOS

While it’s been said many times that BBM will arrive on Android by the end of the summer, this hasn’t happened and we’re once again shooting in the dark. Well, actually we’re left with a new rumor which indicates that a BlackBerry executive has recently revealed that BBM is now expected to land on Android and iOS near the end of October. The app will allegedly be packed with new features and will be a full-fledged messaging service for the two platforms, capable of competing with the likes of WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.


Anyway, the point is that, if you’re a BBM enthusiast, it appears that you may have to -once again- wait a bit longer before you’ll be able to experience the BlackBerry Messenger goodness on your Android or iOS device. On the brighter side of things, this delay may have been caused by BlackBerry’s intentions to deliver a better, more complex app/service. At least there’s that.

Once again, we’ll remind you that, at this point, the exact launch timeframe of this app is still not set in stone. Take it for what it is and stay tuned for more.

Thanks The Droid Guy for the heads-up regarding the rumored BlackBerry Messenger / BBM for Android, iOS release date.
