BBM to finally launch on Android this Saturday
After years and rumors and denials then re-emergence or rumors, BBM is finally coming to Android. As Canadians we've all probably seen at least one or more friends trading BBM Pins to communicate via the BBM exclusive messaging platform. This weekend that exclusivity will end as BBM is finally going crossplatform and will hit Android as well as iOS.
We aren't sure if this moves comes early enough in the messaging "game" as cross platform alternatives like What'sApp, Kik and Google own Hangouts have really carved into the messaging userbase, but we are glad to see that loyal BBM users can now message with friends and family on other platforms.
We'll be sure to try it out this Saturday and will perhaps deliver our thoughts on the veteran messaging service.
