BBM Channels Invoke API Coming For Developers

BBM Channels API_ - BlackBerry Support Community Forums-000429

I have had a few developers ask if BlackBerry would be opening up more API access to BlackBerry Channels and it seems like it is in the works. Ofutur pointed out a thread to me on the BlackBerry Support Forums where BlackBerry employee MSohm has confirmed that you will be able to use the invoke framework to share text and images to channels you own. Devs can actually do that now with an invoke for sharing an image OR text but not both together yet.

In short what we are seeing of BlackBerry Channels is just the beginning and BlackBerry has much more planned on that front. Let us know what sort of API access you want BlackBerry to add in the future!

  1. Would love it if your bbmchannel was updated at the same time as the blog. It’s much more convenient to see all of your newest posts.

    Also, noticed you get more comments there than here :)

  2. I was thinking about it but right now there is no API to do that and it would just be a duplicate for what we already have here. Any reason you would want both? I thought we could use the channel for more discussions.

  3. Currently it would be almost an RSS feed. It would allow me to check out the new headlines and click the link for the full post if I was particularly keen on it. For purely selfish convenience :)

    It just seemed like you were getting greater reader interactivity/response on your bbm channel posts.
