BBM for Android now available on the Amazon Appstore

Although this announcement might not mean a lot for BlackBerry users, it could come in handy when recommending others to download BBM. BlackBerry has now made BBM available through the Amazon Appstore.

All you Android BBMers out there: the latest BBM for Android is now available on the Amazon Appstore. The Amazon Appstore is both a website and accompanying app that connects Android users to all the great movies, games, and apps on Amazon. As part of the monetization plan for BBM, we're growing our user base with a cross-platform strategy, expanding BBM beyond the BlackBerry operating system and bringing Android, iOS, and Windows Phone users into (and back to) the fold.

Now, Android users have the choice of where they want to download BBM from, be it the Amazon Appstore or through Google Play. The latest version supports Android 5.0 Lollipop, includes stickers, enhanced privacy options such as timed messages and message retraction and more.
