BlackBerry is trying to push BBM as a cross-platform instant messaging service for the masses. It started by launching the messaging service on both iOS and Android, and is now planning to bring it to Windows Phone as well, in the Canadian summer, probably at the beginning of Q3.
It will reportedly feature all the same features as its counterparts on other platforms, including BBM Voice. At MWC 2014 this week, it was also announced that the service is preloaded on the launched Android phones, the Nokia X, Nokia X+ and Nokia XL.
You will also be able to use the group chat functionality, called BBM Group, which also allows users to send pictures and schedules within the group. BBM surely has seen a resurgence since allowing users on other platforms to use the service, not long after many analysts wrote of BlackBerry and the BBM service.
