BlackBerry Messenger for Windows Phone has officially left beta

45 sec read

The BBM for windows phone has let go of the ‘Beta’ word from its official nomenclature, from the app’s listing in the Windows Phone store. The messaging app, exclusive to BlackBerry earlier, has recently made itself available to the android, iOS and even windows Phone, ever since WhatsApp pegged its value at $42 per user. A very wise decision by BlackBerry CEO John Chen caused this change of course by otherwise tight walled BBM, and indeed, this has brought the ratings a little high.

BlackBerry Messenger is now officially available on Windows Phone after more than a month of beta testing. The app provides access to almost all of the BBM features you know and love, including groups, multi-person chats, and broadcast messages. BBM for Windows Phone is unique in that it has its own clean and colorful user interface specifically designed to fit Microsoft’s smartphone platform. In comparison, BBM for Android and iOS was designed to look as identical to the BlackBerry 10 version of possible. There are some downsides to the Windows Phone release, however, such as a lack of BBM Channels, no voice or video calling, and no Glympse integration. BlackBerry will be working to add these features in later, however, and the basic BBM functionality is still here.
