With everyone anxiously awaiting the arrival of cross-platform BBM, the beloved messaging app is celebrating a milestone today. One year ago today BBM was added to the Collins English Dictionary.

Given the global popularity of BBM and the BBM name it was no surprise to BlackBerry fans, but BBM has come a long way since last year. 

With BlackBerry 10, BBM has added both voice and video (with screen sharing!) and will soon be bringing all of its amazing features to iOS and Android users as well. In the coming weeks we'll see BBM expand to an even bigger audience as it goes cross-platform. 

So congrats to BBM (and all the folks at BlackBerry of course!). We can't wait to see BBM in the hands of our iPhone and Android buddies soon!
