Kik may not be an app we discuss frequently, but it’s one that’s used quite a bit. A new change brings a depth to messaging, and we’re not sure what to make of it. We’re also not sure you’ll know what to make of it, but it’s definitely cool.
Facebook has begun testing a new Messenger app on Android. The details for the test group are on the lighter side, however the folks at Facebook have offered some explanation as to the new features. Basically, this update means a new look and feel as well as easier and greater access to your friends -- even if you aren't friends with them on Facebook.
For the few of you proudly awaiting for Blackberry's Messenger app for Android to arrive, we might have some good news. After seeing the app finally leak in the wild this morning we're now starting to get tips and details regarding a potential release date. It looks like BBM for Android might finally launch on Friday.
We're getting pretty close to what many would consider "the end of summer" which is when Blackberry Messenger for Android is set to finally be released. However for those who'd rather not wait this weekend the app has leaked in the flesh and is available for download as we speak. If all those leaks didn't convince you it was coming soon, this should do the trick.
We know the once popular smartphone manufacturer BlackBerry is struggling these days, and have heard multiple reports of possible buyouts from all different angles. A new report today however is taking a different approach where they could start to split things up. Most notably is BlackBerry Messenger, known as BBM, which for some reason is still extremely popular and even coming soon to Android.
The popular Blackberry Messenger, known as BBM, is coming soon to Android. We're not sure why this app is continuing to get so much attention, and whether you want it or not the app is coming soon. BlackBerry recently confirmed it will become available on the Samsung App Store, but we still don't have a release date. However, if you're waiting for it, don't download the fakes from the Google Play Store.
We have yet to see anything further from BlackBerry in terms of the BBM for Android release. Officially speaking BBM for Android is expected to arrive sometime before the end of the summer. As we can tell from the calendar, that means the app may not be arriving in the Play Store until as late as September 21st. But with that in mind, it does appear as if the beta test group has recently been opened up a bit wider.
BBM for Android has yet to arrive. The rumors persist and BlackBerry has previously confirmed that it would be available sometime this summer. The key is to when that arrival will actually happen though. Earlier rumors pointed towards a June 27th launch. That date was tweeted and then deleted by T-Mobile UK. In the meantime, the folks at Blackberry have maintained that summer release.
A few weeks ago the rumors started swirling when an official looking but fake BlackBerry Twitter account confirmed the messenger service would arrive for Android on June 27th. It fact, T-Mobile UK even reshared the news as official, even though it was not. We've heard multiple reports that June 27th was the release date, so was it delayed, or only rumors?
BlackBerry has already confirmed the upcoming release of BBM for Android. The key here, despite some rumors and leaks that pointed towards a launch date of June 27th, BlackBerry has only said the app would be available sometime this summer. With that in mind, it looks like Android users may have to watch out for the fake BBM apps.
