After being delayed for a month, BBM for both Android and iOS is finally out on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
With BBM you can see in real-time if someone is writing a reply to you, or if you message has been sent and read. Right now, BBM allows you to chat with up to 30 users at a time and you can share documents, voice notes, files, photos and more. Eventually, BBM Video Chat and Screen Sharing will be available with an update down the road.
Here’s what you can expect on the first release of BBM:
- Chat with friends on Android, BlackBerry and iPhone:
- BBM is always on and always connected – no app to open
- Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
- Share photos, files, documents, voice notes and more
- See when contacts are responding to your message
- Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
- BBM lets you protect your privacy. You control it:
- You chose how to share your information – BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it’s more private, and you always control who can contact you
- You chose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you
- Chat and Share with many at once:
- Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists, and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren’t part of your own BBM contact list.
- Multi-person chats – Invite multiple contacts to have a chat together.
- Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.
- Create your own BBM profile:
- Post a profile picture using images, pictures or even animated pictures (GIFs).
- Update your status to let people know what you’re up to or how you feel
