BlackBerry is trying to establish itself as a cross-platform business software provider as its phone market and overall revenue continue to drop. After launching its iconic BBM messenger to iOS and Android in 2013, BlackBerry on 19 June announced that its messenger service is ready to follow in Windows Phone from this July. CEO John Chen informed the public that BBM for Windows Phones will arrive in July during Thursday morning’s earnings call.
The company enjoyed a great success with the launch of BBM on the other two platforms in October last year and was downloaded more than 10 million times in the first 24 hours it was available. Nokia and Blackberry promised to soon start the service of BBM for Windows Phones but the date was not conformed until Thursday’s morning.
BBM , a service which allows users to send messages, pictures and files back-and-forth, will become a true cross-platform mobile messaging service after this its launch in Windows Phone and with this Windows Phone will become fourth platform to host BBM. The inclusion of BBM for Windows phones is a bonus to Windows Phone, which is reshaping itself into a potential business-focused mobile service provider.
We currently do not have details regarding the features that the Windows Phone version of BBM will have for users, but we can expect that the program will offer the almost same favors as the iOS and Android users have at their disposal.
