BBM application, BlackBerry’s messaging app, will now be available on Micromax Canvas smartphones.
The Ontario-based BlackBerry is offering BBM app to select Android phones. Earlier, the popular app was available to only BlackBerry smartphones.
BBM for Android will be available for download from the Google Play Store, free of cost.
Micromax is the first Indian phone maker to announce the BBM messaging app.
The mobile messaging service application will come pre-loaded on new Micromax smartphones from the first week of October.
Existing Canvas users CAN download the BBM for Android app from the Google Play Store.
Besides BBM, a number of third party messaging services are available on Micromax smartphones.
“Bringing one of the most popular mobile messaging services with BBM on our smartphones is yet another effort to expand our bouquet of messaging services for our consumers to connect and communicate seamlessly with their loved ones,” said Deepak Mehrotra, CEO, Micromax.
Micromax Canvas customers will now have access to the BBM mobile social network around the world, including features such as BBM chats and multi-person chats with BBM Groups, which allow customers to connect with up to 30 BBM contacts at a time, as well as the ability to share voice notes and photographs.
