BBM for Android and iOS has launched!

Exactly a month after it was originally supposed to be available, BlackBerry has given word that BBM for Android and iOS will FINALLY be launching today, over the next few hours. You can hit up Google Play and the App Store and will be able to download BBM as it becomes available in your region. The only catch here is that you may not actually be able to use the app just yet if you haven't signed up at BBM.com. Check out the details below.

BBM Roll Out Details:

  1. Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com from your Android or iPhone browser*
  2. Once you install the app, open it, and enter your email address to hold your spot in line
  3. We will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM

If you are among the millions that took the time to sign up at BBM.com, you can start using BBM immediately without waiting in line.* If you didn’t sign up in advance, don’t worry – we are focused on moving millions of customers through the line as fast as possible.

Our team of developers and engineers has been working around the clock to bring you BBM – and make some upgrades while we’re at it – and some incredible work has been done. I look forward to sharing more of this with you here, on Inside BlackBerry, soon.

For updates on how quickly the line is moving you can follow @BBM on Twitter. I will be back tomorrow with another post to provide you with an update on the line-up and to share more detail about the work the team has done over the last several weeks.

Lastly, thank you for your patience. We know you’re excited (we are too!) and we look forward to having you join us on BBM.

Oddly enough the leafs is the nhl's most valuable team. They generate revenue much more than the other teams even though if they suck. Being in toronto, canadas most populated city in the most populated province, people have no choice but to support their hometown team

phillyphreak

Yea because they launch ready for the masses.

spacemanspork

They've already been going on.

WhatApp vs Viber vs LINE vs WeChat vs KakaoChat vs Kik, vs Google Hangouts vs Facebook Messenger...

BBM is late in the game. Actually BBM isn't there yet apparently. I want to tell my friends to install it but I don't want them to install it, be unable to use it, uninstall it and refuse to try again later. So I guess I'll wait another week or so before bugging them to do it.

Plazmic Flame

I've definitely had to fight the urge to tell everyone about it. Downloading the app and waiting again is the same as not downloading and waiting. Better they know about it when it's available to download and use right away.

LeroyP09

Will this version communicate with Beta Channels versions.

CASH FLOW
This is good news ... but ... BB must capitalize on BBM by making it a profitable entity.

MARKETING
BB had not done well on Playbook and Z10 write-offs, and marketing in general.
If marketing is not done well, BBM will become just another communication tool.

ANOTHER TOOL
Field of Dreams: "build it and they will come" does not necessarily mean BBM will be successful.

DEPENDABILITY
All that it does NOT need is one system downtime failure to make it sink.

START-UP
Will "we will email you as soon as you reach the front of the line and can start using BBM" have any similarity to the US heath care website that does not work as planned?
I hope not.

Disclaimer: Our family has three BB phones. We only use BBM, not text messaging, for our own communication.

Whatever, I'm really excited and so are my friends. Very few of us use blackberries but we all loved BBM.

mandony

ADVERTISED:
YES! There are advertised BBM apps for iPhone's (App Store) and Google Android's (Google Play)

UN- ADVERTISED:
Yes! There is an un-advertised BBM app for Blackberry phones! (Pre-loaded on BB phones) - now how did Blackberry get the phone guys to do that?

IMO: Avoid having to load the BBM app onto iPhone and Android phones. Just purchase a genuine Blackberry phone with BBM pre-loaded.

craigdh1

I use to use the iPhone... once I tried the Z10 for a couple of weeks I was surprised at how much faster I get things done. It was so much more productive that now my iPhone just sits on my desk. I will be upgrading to the Z30 as soon as I can!!!

I hope whoever buys BlackBerry in November is prepared for a huge drop in legacy devices sales. Here I go Xperia Z1, goodbye forever Z10!

Posted via CB10

cletis

I have to wonder how pronounced the impact of that trend will be, and whether it will be balanced by a potential boost in reputation for BB in general resulting from a (theoretical and hopeful) positive experience on BBM for non-BB users? In other words, will this hurt handset sales as you propose, or end up helping after all?

I have channels and have been talking to my buddies with ios for the last month...

Posted via CB10

I think they probably had the beta testers using a beta database because it needed different tables etc. People who signed into the production tables using iOS didn't have their information in the beta databases so communications form beta testers to these people could not happen.

BBM beta with Channels works fine with cross platform users.

Pilot Prop

finally!!!! im about to hit all of my friends and see if they can/will download it

birdman_38

Correct me if I'm wrong but according to the BBM blog, users who didn't sign up for updates can download it, but they have to wait for an email for it to be activated.

Understandable, but weird. And kind of risky. Hopefully it goes well.

paper_monkey

I was thinking that too but if you believe the rampant issues created by the leak the last time 'round it's a fairly easy work around (if not time and staff intensive) to basically confirm it's the correct app, assign a PIN as necesary and then whitelist it.. That's my initial thoughts on it at least.

birdman_38

Considering BlackBerry's poor track record on execution (taking 29 days to fix this mess), I can't see this going well. There should be a lot of frustrated people come this evening who haven't recieved their activation email.

paper_monkey

oh, agreed.. I can't see it being the least bit efficient and I too, anticipate many frustrated users.

Dave79

I think it will take a couple of days for the roll out to complete. People will need to be patient.

Dave79

Actually reading the official news better it will take at least three days:
"*Samsung customers in Sub-Sahara Africa can download BBM today from the Samsung Apps store. iPhone and other Android users in Africa will be able to download the app in three days’ time."

paper_monkey

Unless I'm misreading it, that exclusivity applies only to Africa. Sub-Saharan African Samsung customers can download it today, the remaining African users will be able to download in 3 days so agreed, it will take 3 days if you are a non Samsung customer in Africa but unless that is worded in an unbelievably horrible way, I'm inclined to believe that the roll out for non-African customers will start at some point this afternoon/evening

Dave79

Africa is a big continent I just asked over voice control on my Q10 what's the population of Africa and my Siri wannabe told me 1.1 bilion people.

You could pass as a racist for what you wrote.

paper_monkey

I don't recall stating anything about the size of Africa but yes, it is a rather large continent. As for my comment being racist (sorry, passing for racist.. wouldn't want to be accused of making a personal attack) I'm not entirely sure how restating the disclaimer that BBRY put at the bottom of their announcement passes for racist. The way the disclaimer is worded states that users in Sub-Saharan Africa who are using a Samsung device will have access to BBM today while Android users who are not using a Samsung device and iOS users in the balance of Africa will have to wait 3 days. How is that the least bit racist?

Are you suggesting that my classifying anyone who is not residing in (or at very least operating a wireless device on a network based in) Africa as non-African is somehow racist?

Nharzhool

Ignore him, mate. That wasn't racist. Some people are too touchy about the race issue (usually upper-middle class white people hehe [yes, THAT is racist, though not really since I'm in that demographic]).

It was racist for him to imply that Africa consists of only one race. Our continent isn't monochrome! For instance, Durban (city in South Africa) has the largest concentration of Indians outside of India...good going on suggesting they don't exist, Dave79!

haha, I'm just busting balls. I like it here. :-) Racism isn't really a huge thing here.

birdman_38

Dave79, stop trying to start shit.

milo53

Dave79, that was funny!

birdman_38

Not really. Only a true racist calls an undeserving person "racist".

paper_monkey

Thanks Birdman.. I've got many family members who have dealt with far too much racism in their lives. It's kind of a touchy subject and not something I take lightly.

wincyUt

some people will never be satisfied.....what a pity.

That wouldve been good for advertisng, But BlackBerrys been slacking on that. Probably because of money issues

I hope Google cleaned out the fake BBM garbage so there is no confusion this time. I am looking forward to a successful release.

There were still a couple fake titles within the past hour.

Plazmic Flame

Those have been there for the past few weeks, except for the one that has the official BBM logo for it's app, that's been there recently.

The_Merovingian

Your right, I just looked on my wifes' GNote and there is one in there from a DEV called orange or something. I think I will have her wait for about 24hrs and see. I can't wait until the Z30 drops. Then I can upgrade and she can come on home to team BBRY

No, GPlay is full of trash.

and now i have to watch half my friends run off to iphone just for bbm yay >_< still its a good thing tho more contacts lol

DavideaNY

For once the "marketing guy" words were true... finally!
Now BBM needs TONS of downloads, and BlackBerry please start already to add the missing features missing on the other platforms.. voice first of all and after that get BBM channel out of beta!!
Lastly.. windows phone everyone? BBM needs to truly be multiplatform..

Posted via CB10

scorpiodsu

It needs tons of downloads AND consistent usage. So many apps are downloaded by a lot of users and then not used at all. Just as example, Facebook, Google + and Twitter all have waaaaaaaay more users than the number that are actively using the services. I'm afraid this will be one of those things where we see a huge download number at the beginning but over time, usage faints because a lot of people were downloading just see how it works or the hassle of trying to get others to download and use it consistently isn't worth it. I mean at the end of the day, this, google hangouts, whatsapp, etc... are only as valuable to us if our friends are using them too.

Wait for the download... and then wait for access to the app ;)

bbontherise47

so its BlackBerry now and has been for quite some time so get it right! ALSO, it says right in the post, for the 6 million plus that signed up on the website, they can use it right away, everyone else can download the app, create a BBID, and then BlackBerry will notify you when your BBID is live.

not quite sure where you read you have to wait for the download, but again, keep hating, oh and when BBM adds 10 million users over the next few days, come back and try to negatively spin that.

kupfernigk

If 6 million signed up, I think you have the reason for the delay right there. All the other messaging applications started from nothing and scaled as they went. I wonder if BB simply underestimated the demand and had to scale up the server and management capacity?

wincyUt

Those who can't wait or like BlackBerry's rules, are not forced to download BBM. KEEP MOVING!!

BuffaloMadMan

Yeah I agree why wouldnt they release a statement when they released the app. Their PR team is just horrible

Do you know how to read? If so read the WHOLE article not just the headlines. It's coming out in waves. I'm guessing is so that servers don't get overwhelmed.

Good news for BlackBerry. Now release 10.2 and keep the momentum going!

They did already. Singapore got it last week. Is now in the hands of carriers. BlackBerry really should start doing ota releases straight to consumers though.

Hell no! iOS7 update was hell for technical support. Specially since most users will blame carriers for something we don't control. I may not love Apple but seriously their after sales support is second to none. We don't even have BlackBerry's support number. The one we have is only for PlayBook support.

CDM76

That's brutal !!!
But it goes back to what I've been saying for last two months. EVERYTHING BlackBerry does right now needs to be based around marketing. Every single move they make. And what you've said should definitely be addressed as a marketing (ie word of mouth) issue...... if not simple basic customer service!

So... am I the only one still getting the same BBM coming soon page?

Go to the browser on your device and type "www.bbm.com" and simply follow the instructions. It works!!

Checked the Android Play store and ITunes but don't see it anywhere. Tried going directly to bbm.com on both browsers and it's a no go as well

I'm pretty sure i can read and write better than the most educated person in your family so i suggest you pick your words wisely before coming at me with such nonsense.

CDM76

Obviously not. But whatever. Get over yourself.

I think they're probably going to link to the Play and iTunes stores (so that people don't have to sift through the fakes.) If you have an Android device, keep refreshing this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=BlackBerry+Limited
