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
Share and be seen with BBM Video
Switch your BBM chat to a BBM Video conversation with just a tap and catch up face-to-face. The new Screen Share feature lets you show photos or your browser, or review a business document. You can even share the view from your camera. Enjoy this new BBM experience on BlackBerry 10 smartphones.
Say it all. BBM, now with Voice
For the times when you want to hear a friend’s laughter instead of reading their LOLs, BBM now comes with BBM Voice.3
Switch your BBM conversation from text to a call and speak to your BBM contacts, from virtually anywhere they are in the world for free over Wi-Fi. You’ll instantly know whenever BBM friends are available to call.
To enjoy BBM Voice, you need to have a BlackBerry smartphone with BlackBerry Device Software v5 or higher. Then simply update to BBM 7 to get the new feature.
Socialize over apps
