BBM Nearing 100 Million Active Users
We were all under the impression that BlackBerry Messenger was near to disappearing. It was one of the first non-SMS mobile messaging service to make an impact. But it was on decline as Apple and Android as well as apps such as Whatsapp caught on. However, don’t think we’ve seen the last of BBM just yeat. BBM has been making a comeback since its was introduced as a cross platform app.
BlackBerry has announced that it has hit 91 million active users for BBM across Android, iOS, its own smartphones and Windows Phone. It has 113 million registered users in total.
With that many users, the company has decided to release update features for BBM. There will be a “sticker picker” to make it easier to sort through the 55 different sticker packs currently available through the BBM Shop. Along with this, Waterloo will be turning on high quality image transfers by default and improving BBM status updates for Android so share what song you’re listening to with friends.
