BBM for Android and iOS was supposed to launch over the weekend, although BlackBerry decided to pause the release of BBM because of the leaked version of the app.
Now BlackBerry have said that they are working to block the people who are using the leaked version of the BBM app, close to one million people were using the app.
We attempted to address the problems caused by the unreleased version throughout the day on Saturday, but as active users of the unreleased app neared a million – and accelerated – it became clear that the only way to address the issue was to pause the rollout for both Android and iPhone.
The team is now focused on adjusting the system to completely block this unreleased version of the Android app when we go live with the official BBM for Android app. We are also making sure that the system is reinforced to handle this kind of scenario in the future. While this may sound like a simple task – it’s not. This will take some time and I do not anticipate launching this week.
So there we have it, no BBM for Android and iOS this week, hopefully BlackBerry will get things sorted and the app can be launched next week.
