Tuesday

BBM for iPhone and Android is officially available.

This is the news you’ve been waiting for! I am thrilled
to tell you that we are about to officially resume our
rollout of BBM for Android and iPhone customers
around the globe!* In the next few hours, people will
start seeing BBM in Google Play, the App Store and in
select Samsung App Stores – where it will be free to
download.
The demand for BBM on Android and BBM on iPhone
continues to be amazing. About six million people
signed up for information about BBM at BBM.com. As
you know, in just seven hours, about one million
Android users were using the unreleased version of
BBM for Android. What you don’t know is that more
than one million people have found creative ways to
“side load” BBM on their iPhone. This is incredible.
To help manage this unprecedented pent up demand
for BBM, we are implementing a simple line-up system
to ensure a smooth roll out. Here’s how it is going to
work…
BBM Roll Out Details:
Download BBM – the easiest way is to visit BBM.com
from your Android or iPhone browser*
Once you install the app, open it, and enter your
email address to hold your spot in line
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.
*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.
