BlackBerry may bring BBM to desktop computers in the coming months, whilst Microsoft Windows Phones, and the Nokia X platforms will be coming soon, according to Reuters. This move will allow big company employees and government agencies to communicate across platforms on their desktop without skipping a beat.
BBM is “drawing some strong interest from brands and business,” according to BlackBerry CEO John Chen. BBM grows to 80 million active users in the first week of being available for Android and iOS phones. Also, BBM channel is growing rapidly. Only 200,000 Channels were on BBM four months ago, but now this number doubles. However, BBM is still far behind some of its cross platform competitors: Line, Whatsapp, WeChat, and Skype. All of them have over 300 million active users.
