BlackBerry Messenger 7.0.1 Now Available with BBM Voice for OS 5.0+

BlackBerry Twitter

BlackBerry has been testing BBM with support for BBM Voice on BlackBerry OS 5.0+ devices for awhile in the Beta Zone. It is now ready for prime time and they have released this upgrade to BBM for all OS 5.0+ devices. This essentially allows BBM 5 devices in on the BBM Voice game.

Here are the features of BBM 7:

  • Multi-tasking with Split-screen feature – Customers can do more while they talk, such as check other BBM text chats, check email, or navigate to other apps while engaged on a BBM Voice call. They can start a call in an instant, and switch between texting and talking, or text and talk at the same time. They can also for example, send a picture to a contact while they are talking with them.
  • Clear Visual Indicator – Customers can see when contacts are available for a voice call.
  • Convenient Compatibility with Accessories – Customers can use their favorite accessories, such as a Bluetooth® or wired headset, or use their BlackBerry smartphone’s speakerphone.
  • Simple BlackBerry ID Synchronization – Customers can set up BBID to link their BBM profile, Groups and Contacts with the BBID for easy backup and restore. BBID is required for BBM Voice and this can be set up when upgrading. The data will also carry over when they move to BlackBerry® 10.
