BBM is one of the most popular cross-platform messaging apps available at the moment. In its earlier days, it was a Blackberry exclusive app, but the company changed its mind last year, and launched the app for other mobile platforms, including Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
In a recent blog post, Blackberry confirmed BBM has over 91 million monthly active users across the globe — that’s combined users on all platforms. The last time we heard, BBM had 85 million active users, so there’s a definite improvement.
Additionally, Blackberry announced the company has a lot in store for BBM, and plans to add a lot of exciting new features to the app. The update, which is currently available in the Blackberry Beta Zone, come with several new features, including:
- A new sticker picker to make it faster and easier to browse, select, and use the sticker packs you love.
- High Quality image transfers by default – no more need to request an HQ image
- Plus, Android users will be able to share what they’re listening to with their BBM contacts through BBM status updates
These are some good additions to the app ,and we’re hoping it will come out to the stable app soon. We’ll update you as soon as they are released.
