BBM Video for Android and iPhone is now out in Asia-Pacific region
BlackBerry has finally released BBM video for Android and iOS in Asia-Pacific, which is also its biggest user base. Now, users can make video calls on cross-platform. Video calling first made its debut in US and Canada as the company wanted to fix bugs before releasing it worldwide. It is stable now and available to all users.
Moreover, the feature is activated on the server side so no update is required to install; you should see it automatically when it arrives.
Even though BBM isn’t as popular as its other rivals like Messenger or WhatsApp, the company shows no intention to give up and developing new features for it. The Canadian company is also planning to launch the capability to register for an account through a phone number. Add to that, Android users will be allowed to share larger videos whereas iOS users will be able to mute group notifications.
To sum up, it’ll be interesting to see how long BBM can keep up with its competitors in an ever growing IM market and what else they can do to regain and increase its user base.
