BBM Channels Exiting Beta Shortly – Voice and Video Calling Coming to Android and iPhone “Within Months”

BBM Channels

BlackBerry has been really cagey about when the future of BBM will unfold but they have been pretty straight about what is coming. Andrew Bocking, EVP of BBM at BlackBerry, took the stage at CBC’s The Morning Edition to state that “we have other ideas on how to monetize the service” aka BBM. He said that BlackBerry has a new social engagement platform in BBM. They said during the interview that BBM channels will be launching soon but not putting a specific date.

Even more interesting was confirmation that Voice and Video calling is coming to BBM on Android and iOS users “in the near future” which they defined as “within months.”

Kudos to MobileSyrup for catching it via CBC

  1. They need some serious server upgrades for the voice and video then. I wonder if they would charge for the voice and video from other platforms, that would be interesting…
    Also, why hasn’t BB money expanded beyond Malaysia (if I’m not mistaken)?

  2. when they will apply the BBM CHANNELS for the IPHONE…i cant wait…
    how can i be on update
