RIM has announced the launch of a new version of its BlackBerry Messenger, BBM6 , and the new version now has support for BBM connected apps, which gives users an easier way to communicate with each other on their smartphones.
This means that BBM users can chat with each other from within the app they are currently using, for example a game that supports the service would allow you to chat directly from within the game without having to switch to the messenger app.
“BBM 6 marks the beginning of an even greater social experience for BlackBerry smartphone users,” said Alistair Mitchell, VP, BBM Platform & Integrated Services at Research In Motion. “It also represents an incredible opportunity for developers to leverage the viral nature of the BBM service and we have already begun working with various developer partners who will be bringing their BBM connected apps to BlackBerry App World this week, offering users highly engaging app experiences.”
