After Android and iOS, BBM messaging service opens to Windows Phone 8 to continue to take market share.
The instant messaging service BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is one of the core values of the Canadian BlackBerry maker on which it can hope to prosper. Once reserved only for BlackBerry devices, the manufacturer had to resort to open it to competing mobile platforms to increase its user base.
BBM has ended up on Android and iOS, with some success, and hopes to get a strong increase in the number of users, although it is still far from the platform of instant messaging like the most prominent WhatsApp.
Continuing its strategy of openness, BlackBerry announces the arrival of its BBM service to Windows Phone 8, so we will find out all the proposals for BlackBerry, BBM Chats for communications with document sharing, BBM Groups for trade in several (50 people), or BBM Feeds to track the status of contacts gathered in a screen.
BlackBerry will monitor the application that will add new features in BBM on Windows Phone 8 and more when available. The application is free to download.
