I always enjoy when BlackBerry shares some of the usage stats for BlackBerry Messenger. This is a huge deal now that BBM is going cross platform. It will set the benchmark on how large the ecosystem will grow with BBM expanding. I am also curious if it will finally allow multiple device support…
Here are the latest BBM usage numbers BlackBerry shared:
- More than 60 million monthly active users
- More than 51 million daily active users who are connecting with friends or colleagues an average of one and a half hours every day.
- BBM users send and receive more than 10 billion messages each day, nearly twice as many messages per user per day as compared to other mobile messaging apps
- Almost half of BBM messages are read within 20 seconds of being received; indicating how truly engaged BBM customers are
Heins also said something about it being the largest mobile messenger but I did not manage to catch it…
