BBM 2.0

Contributor(s): Colin Steele

BBM 2.0 is an updated version of the BlackBerry Messenger app for iOS, Android and BlackBerry devices.  

The app moves beyond BlackBerry Messenger’s core text chat capabilities, offering voice calling over data and Wi-Fi networks, social networking capabilities and file- and location-sharing. The social networking feature, which is called BBM Channels, lets BBM 2.0 users chat with others with similar interests on pages devoted to specific products or activities. The file-sharing feature integrates with Dropbox, allowing users to upload and download files to and from the cloud. (Users can also share files stored directly on their devices.) 

BlackBerry released the first version of BBM for iOS and Android in 2013. BBM 2.0 was released in February 2014.

This was last updated in April 2014
