Posted by erlan | Posted in news | Posted on 23-09-2013


The lot of anticipated unharnessed of BlackBerry courier (BBM) for robot and iOS hit a roadblock on Sat, with the corporate spoken communication it’s pausing the primary ever rollout of the favored electronic messaging app to third-party platforms.

Having proclaimed that BlackBerry courier would be accessible for robot on Sat and iPhone on Sunday, there was immense anticipation for the approaching unharness of the applying on Google’s mobile platform on Sat. However, that ne’er materialized, because the official build of BlackBerry courier for robot ne’er hit Google Play Store, though’ a leaked build was seen floating around.

This leaked build clearly got circulated quite a bit, with BlackBerry revealing over one.1 million active users at intervals eight hours. The corporate everlasting this leaked build for “issues” that it “attempted to deal with throughout the day”.

“Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen already – more than 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this unreleased version caused issues, which we have attempted to address throughout the day.

Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who downloaded it should visit www.BBM.com to register for updates on official BBM for Android availability.

As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone. Please follow @BBM on Twitter for the latest updates and go to www.BBM.com to sign-up for updates about BBM for Android and iPhone. These issues have not impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.”
