BBM records 100 million installs on Google Play Store
It was just like yesterday when BlackBerry rolled out the BBM app across Android OS and iOS platforms, later joined by Windows Phone. The Canadian phone maker recently marked 100 million downloads of the app from Google Ply Store with a big thank you to users but not without mentioning that the number is “just a fraction of the total” because BlackBerry Messenger is on other platforms too — BlackBerry OS, iOS and Windows.
In the spirit of the achievement, BlackBerry Messenger 2.7 was launched, introducing changing of your BBM PIN which will attract a token of $1.99 US dollars per month. The app was also extended to Android Wear platform, the OS which powers most the Motorola Moto 360 smartwatch and many more others.
