Cue the Ron Paul memes, ’cause it’s happening. BlackBerry announced BBM’s official launch onto Android and iOS for September 21. The app will be available for free through Google Play, allowing users to send secure messages to any of their fellow contacts using BBM. 

App features:

BBM Chat – Enjoy real, immediate conversations with friends on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry smartphones. Not only does BBM let you know that your message has been delivered and read, it also shows you that your friend is responding to the message.

More than chat – With BBM you can share files on your phone such as photos and voice notes, all in an instant.

Your unique PIN – Every BBM user has a unique PIN that maintains your privacy, so you don’t have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.

While it has taken quite some time to see this come to fruition, we are sort of glad it’s finally coming. Will we use? Probably not, but for anyone that does want it, we will be sure to let you know when it hits the Play store.
