While BBM has expanded its reach to Android and iOS, it’s still not made Windows Phone its home yet. We’ve already heard the company say it’s working on a port and today at BlackBerry’s earnings call, the company CEO announced that BBM will be available on Windows Phone in July.
Although the messenger isn’t as popular as WhatsApp or WeChat, it’s still used in countries that used be BlackBeryy strongholds. BlackBerry might have initially thought otherwise about bringing BBM on Windows Phone, but the sale of Viber and more importantly WhatsApp must have made them reconsider. We just hope that the Windows Phone version is at par with the Android and iOS versions of the app.
