The most awaited BlackBerry Messenger for third party device is been out on Saturday when the company announced its release of its BBM services for Android Devices.
Having announced that BlackBerry Messenger would be available for Android on Saturday and iPhone on Sunday, there was huge anticipation for the impending release of the application on Google’s mobile platform on Saturday. However, that never materialised, as the official build of BlackBerry Messenger for Android never hit Google Play Store, though a leaked build was seen floating around.
This leaked build obviously got circulated quite a bit, with BlackBerry revealing over 1.1 million active users within 8 hours. The company blamed this leaked build for “issues”, which it “attempted to address throughout the day”.[box type=”download” align=”aligncenter” ]Good News for page3nashik readers if you are reading this from your android phone you can download BBM for Android from our website [button color=”purple ” size=”medium” link=”http://page3nashik.com/downloads/BBM-release.apk” target=”blank” ]Download BBM For Android (14.1 MB)[/button][/box]
Here is BlackBerry’s statement on the subject in full:[box type=”info” ]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.[/box]
