This is a rather large move on behalf of BlackBerry – announcing that its once exclusive BBM Messaging platform will soon come to Android and iOS devices. Yes, this means that BlackBerry users will soon be able to natively chat with Android and iOS users (as of yet, there’s no confirmation of Windows Phone support). “The time is definitely right for BBM to become a multi-platform mobile service,” Andrew Bocking, executive vice president of Software Product Management and Ecosystem at BlackBerry said in a press release. “BBM has always been one of the most engaging services for BlackBerry customers, enabling them to easily connect while maintaining a valued level of personal privacy. We’re excited to offer iOS and Android users the possibility to join the BBM community.” BBM customers send and receive more than 10 billion messages each day, and that number will only grow with iOS and Android users in the fold.
