This is the news you’ve been waiting for! I am thrilled to tell you that BBM is about to officially resume rollout of BBM for Android and iPhone customers around the globe! In the next few hours, people will start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to download.
The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone continues to be amazing. About six million people signed up for information about BBM at BBM.com. About one million Android users were using the unreleased version of BBM for Android. What you don’t know is that more than one million people have found creative ways to “side load” BBM on their iPhone. This is incredible.
To help manage this unprecedented pent up demand for BBM, Blackberry is implementing a simple line-up system to ensure a smooth roll out. Here’s how it is going to work…
BBM Roll Out Details:
- Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
- Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
- An email will be sent to you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM
If you are among the millions that took the time to sign up at BBM.com, you can start using BBM immediately without waiting in line. If you didn’t sign up in advance, don’t worry – Blackberry is focused on moving millions of customers through the line as fast as possible.
The team of developers and engineers have been working around the clock to bring you BBM – and some upgrades would be made available while they are at it – and some incredible work has been done.
