We've already seen that BBM for Android topped well over 1 million downloads, and BlackBerry has now stated that between both Android and iPhone users, BBM has seen over 10 million downloads. We expected the numbers to be big but this is definitely great to see. The numbers come in for just 24 hours since the initial release and make BBM one best single-day openings to date.

Press Release

BBM achieves top ranking in the App Store in over 75 countries within the first 24 hours

WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - October 22, 2013) - In just 24 hours BBM™ has been downloaded over 10 million times by Android™ and iPhone® users, one of the best single-day openings for a mobile app to date. BBM, the premier private social network from BlackBerry® (NASDAQ: BBRY)(TSX: BB), is available for free in the App Store(SM) and Google Play™ for immediate download.

BBM also quickly rose through the rankings on the App Store to be the number one free app in more than 75 countries in the first 24 hours, including the US, Canada, the UK, Indonesia and most of the Middle East. User ratings in both the App Store and Google Play are overwhelmingly positive, earning BBM 60,000 five-star reviews on Google Play from about 87,000 reviews.

"This has been an incredible launch for BBM across Android and iPhone devices. The mobile messaging market is full of opportunity for BBM. We intend to be the leading private social network for everyone who needs the immediate communication and collaboration of instant messaging combined with the privacy, control and reliability delivered through BBM," said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President, BBM at BlackBerry.

BBM users, old and new, are enjoying the following features:

  • BBM Chat - Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let people know their message has been delivered and read, it also shows them when a contact is responding to a message.
  • More than chat - With BBM, customers can simply and instantly share files such as photos and voice notes. Multi-person chats are a great way to invite contacts to chat together.
  • Get in the Group - BBM Groups lets users invite up to 30 friends to chat together, as well as share photo albums, calendars and files.
  • Post Updates and stay in the know - BBM lets people post a personal message, profile picture and a current status, and lets contacts see statuses instantly in Updates.
  • Your unique PIN - Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains privacy, so users are not required to ever give out their phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.

Android and iPhone users will have access to BBM Voice and Video calling, as well as the new community building tool - BBM Channels - in the near future.

they could start by finding a way to let these 10 million people login, the waiting list is hurting for shur.

As far as I know mozilla had 8 million downloads in 24 hrs, so I guess guiness may be knocking on Blackberrys door.

I have a samsung galaxy s4 and I just downloaded bbm but its not letting accept people I can only add them is anyone else having this problem

The only downside is that whatsapp can send larger videos and send images to a group chat.

BBM can share images in a group though but not when you invite someone to a chat.

paulmike83

Take note instagram and Netflix. Take note. Hmmmmm, there are still well over ten million BlackBerry owners, make your app available to them and you get more revenue and profit that would go way above the overhead. But, you still don't want your app on a BlackBerry and you can make $$$. Makes me wonder who paid off Netflix.

I cancelled my Netflix and will not renew until on BB10.

HabsFan9860

...we dumped Netflix A long time ago as the picture quality was crap on my big plasma...what's available in BlackBerry World works quite well...and the picture quality is miles better that Netflix had...prices for rentals are reasonable as are the buy prices...Netflix will never come back on my devices even if they release it...hell even Crackle (that is on BB10) works better...and it's free, if you don't mind commercials...

netflix has a video quality settings on the browser. It's defaulted to SD quality so to avoid data overages. I had to go and change it to get HD quality

birdman_38

Are there over 10 million BB10 owners?

BeautyEh

Amazing. BlackBerry has no margin for error though. They need to keep pushing the envelope, innovating, adding features. And probably find a way to monetize it eventually. Maybe a "BBM Plus" for $1 or 2 a month that allows extras, large file sharing or something.

Posted via CB10

birdman_38

Not a bad concept. That'll be up to the new owners to decide on.

Thachoc1

They need to lift the 6MB limit, I believe that's the only real drawback. Matter of fact not just for BBM but for all messages on the device.

freedomx20a

Those are all ex BlackBerry owners who left and will never come back. Amazingly high #

Will IOS & Andriod BBM have the same security as a Blackberry Device BBM?
Do it work the same and go thru BlackBerry Infrastructure (BBI)?

Aphirath

First off, great news. 2nd people do care about security. If you don't believe me, tell them Facebook, Google even Apple is gathering information to make your experiences better. Now tell them that these companies server has been hacked and user information may have been compromised. Tell them all photos and files saved to the cloud has been stolen. Tell me they don't care.

People don't care about security until something happens to them.

When someone tells you they don't care about security. Tell them you'll remember this conversation when they have a cyber security breach or security breach at home.

It's like insurance. You don't need it until something bad happens. BlackBerry is on the verge of taking over the corporate world as Android and Apple via the NSA have completely let anyone interested in security down.

I am keeping positive overall and it is great to see a positive thread for a change but BlackBerry needs to convert those downloads in to users. Too many still waiting for emails. If the BBM servers can handle billions of messages daily,then BlackBerry needs to get emails out to all these new downloads ASAP!! My daughter is still waiting after 24 hours. Let's go BlackBerry, do it!!!

And vice-versa?

I downloaded BBM to my iPhone but it gave me a pin that is different from my Z10. What does that mean? And what doesn't make sense is that I can't receive messages on more than one device, like say iMessage. why is this so?

majormac2001

It's better that way. Do you really want your private chats going to more than one device at the same time?

Still a lot of people on the waitlist. They really need to get rid of the waitlist.

boldbalance

I hope they get people through the wait list as fast as possible. The wait list is a double-edged sword method. One one edge it allows BlackBerry's servers not to be overloaded. On the other edge, a lot of people will be impatient trying to wait for BlackBerry to send the confirmation email for a long time. Because of their impatience, they'll try to convince others not to download it. That's not a good thing for BlackBerry. There's the first roadblock that BlackBerry needs to successfully conquer if they want BBM to have a chance in the IM competition arena. There's obviously more roadblocks that BlackBerry needs to conquer. But if they can get over the roadblocks, I believe BBM will have a bright future. :]

Playbook007

When you are rolling out over 10 million downloads in less than 24 hours and all those people are now telling others about it, one has to be patient. I think someone was saying that if you shut down your iphone, then restart I will load. Else go get a bb10 device and have it all.

I pré registered. I gave my email to 3 different ppl and it worked for them too. 2 Droids and 1 iphone. So if you have a friend waiting for BBM and you pre-registered give them the email you used and it should work right away for them too. They have to delete the app and re-download it using the email you give them. Good luck!

If you pre-registered please share the email you used with your friends who are waiting. I have 10 ppl so far that successfully created a BBM account using my email to bypass the waiting line. Share this post. It's simple to do. Doesn't seem to matter how many ppl use the same email. It's only used to get you past the wait screen NOT for account setup. You all will still get your unique PIN/BBID so no worries. Good luck!

So sorry if anyone has asked this question before, but, why didn't BlackBerry charge all the non-BlackBerry users $0.99 for the app? With this kind of response charging a small price would not seem to harm the roll-out? There should be a small price to pay for "those"refusing to buy a BlackBerry phone!

This reminds me of my first experience with bbm. A few invites from people I've never met which will surely follow with an uninstall when we run out of things to txt about. No video chat after all this hype and wait?!? The only send file option through the app is pics from the gallery? Oh but the smiley faces are cute...

Add the stupid feature of deleting your photo you sent to someone in 10seconds ala snapchat and BBM would dominant. What people want is to send dirty pics of themselves and receive in return, so give it to them no matter how ridiculous it is and the obvious flaw of taking screen shots.

I have to agree. Add a snap chat like feature to BBM like an auto delete on pictures, and with the oncoming voice/video chat, not one other mobile messaging system could come close to touching BBM.

I just had to chime in on this and say even amongst my younger peer group (18-25 year old range) I am seeing a lot of buzz about BBM on facebook. I am seeing lots of pins being shared and a lot of positive posts about it. I really have to say, I did not expect such a massive response, but rather a muted one. I was wrong! If BlackBerry plays this right, this could quite possibly be the thing that brings their brand back into the conscience of the people they need the most. Can't wait for my Android friends to get voice and video!

In a previous post someone claimed you could put it on the IPAD.

patiltejas25

Why Bbm work on normal data plan for android and iphone and not on blackberry and it also work on wifi for android and iphone device . That's injustice

BBhombre

Scratch my previous post. It is available for the IPad as a phone sized app. There isn't an app specifically designed for the tablet.

Sidharth Khattri

That is so not true. Almost all the reviews in playstore are fake and hence fake download numbers, because a review cannot be written without downloading the app. Go to bbm review and you'll see this comment with certain variations(waiting,smooth,love you etc.) everywhere from different users:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bbm
"Thank you so much blackberry team. I was waiting this app. Its really great user friendly and smooth."

That is loads of fake ass reviews and download number. And I can understand your bias.

This is awesome news. I hope it keeps up. I'm glad something is going BlackBerry's way. Maybe this is the start of positive things to happen to BB. One concerning issue is the negative articles still, even in regards to BBM. No matter what some or most articles are still saying something negative. Example is Tech News and their article about BBM. Can't they just write a positive article for once. Why is their such a hate on for BB? They just don't want to see them succeed or something.

Turns out that google play store was spammed with reviews on BBM. thus the reviews and rating of BBM on google play are not accurate. if you read the reviews you will see that 90% of them are canned. http://www.cultofandroid.com/43611/blackberry-working-with-google-to-rem...

Hrrrmmm, my only fear would be that with this level of exposure, if things are FUBAR'd in these releases, it could be 10,000,000 nails in the coffin :(

I sure hope this goes well...

It's amazing to see the haitian community ripping themselves apart waiting on that email!!!

BBM going cross platform was a great move

It has become a positive joke on my newsfeeds on fb! While some are saying victory I got my email, others are complaining (jealousy) that they still have to wait!

What I don't like as a Q10 user about BBM is that even if I am on BBM, it still buzzez or gives a sound notification when a message pops. It is very irritating for me and the people around me. Like to see that fixed like whatsapp does.

Why bbm works on normal internet pack + on wifi for android n iphone but not on blackberry ?

MR.GRANDBERRY

Just because BBM is highly downloaded does not mean it is just as respected by those using it. There's several bugs especially the issue where people are not receving the emails to be able to use the service, as well as the current update crashing when some users click "Contacts". I'll admit, I'm not enjoying this experience so far but I'll give it time to improve.

What if BBM charges USD0.99 per download?

Oh I would like to add to this post that it should be able sync with your phone contact's to automatically add users just like viber, what's app, ect.....

The most important number is active users … this download numbers have no pointless use, myself already download and re-download to address bugs at least 10 times. Many iPhone and Android users are reporting they only have few contacts on BBM so not use it anymore.

Will we get features like Bbm video chat and screen sharing, etc
