BlackBerry has just announced that its popular instant messaging service BBM will be available on Android from this Saturday, the 21 of September and iOS from the 22 of September.
Previously exclusive to BlackBerry smartphones, BBM will be available as a free download in Google Play and the App Store. Customers will also be able to download BBM by visiting http://www.BBM.com from their smartphone browser.
BBM runs in the background and is always on, meaning that messages on BBM are typically delivered and read within seconds. It also keeps a record of messages that have been delivered and read, and uses a PIN to keep contacts and information secure.
