BBM for Android Hits Beta Zone for Select Users – Splash Screen Caught on Camera

 BBM Android

We are still hearing about an end of summer release of BBM for Android and iOS but we have not heard much new in awhile. Now it looks like BlackBerry is testing out BBM for Android in their Beta Zone for a select number of users. No word on what the criteria is but hopefully we will learn more soon! Kudos to BBOS for spotting the invites. The only requirements set so far is that BBM for Android requires OS 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or iOS 6. BGR also managed to snag this screen below showing the splash screen for BBM for Android on a Galaxy S3. They are hearing that the software “isn’t bad” whatever that means and its nice to see it using a BlackBerry ID.

  1. Awesome!

  2. Finally…I hope it’s weeks before they have it ready, or less.
    I have a hunch about not hearing the same for iPhones, it only comes in one shade if you know what I mean…

    • I think we’re looking at weeks. It looks like it’s hitting Google Play and the App Store before the end of the month :) The betas are out and I’m sure BlackBerry is putting a very high priority on this. Could it be purposely delayed so that the Q5 is first released to the North American market? I don’t think so. This is a big step for BlackBerry, which will push the company more into social networking and services.

  3. BlackBerry, please amaze us, this is your chance…

  4. Yeah they need to really knock this one out of the park. They need to make sure it works 100% out of the gate. None of this 80% baked at launch.

  5. Given the relative ease, I would imagine it shouldn’t be too difficult to find the BBM APK floating around somewhere.
