Leaked documents reveal BBM Video coming in BlackBerry 10

RIM recently launched their BBM Voice service that gives BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) users the ability to make free calls with each other over a Wi-Fi signal. Next, but still unconfirmed by RIM, is the inclusion of BBM Video within BlackBerry 10 OS. This is expected to give BBM users a further option to connect with each other and is reportedly similar to Skype, or Facetime.

A leaked internal doc has appeared online that gives a greater insight into the upcoming service. According to a post on CrackBerry, RIM will launch BBM Video and will allow BBM users to “chat with a colleague or customer then transition to a video call for improved collaboration and share a presentation or spreadsheet instantly to help get the message across more clearly – all at the push of a button.”

Taking a look at the screenshots shows how BBM Video will possibly look – the person you’re calling taking up majority of the display, with your image on the bottom left. Of course, every new feature within BB10 will be unveiled on January 30th, 2013.

    These images are going to be taken down very shortly. Already removed from CrackBerry due to the NDA.

    If “Kaye Anderson” comes with the phone, I’ll take it!

    Never mind the BBM Video, the BBM Voice is not even worked. I installed BBM Voice, the damn thing keep on spinning, nothings happened. Burn in hell Rim!

      Works perfectly for me. I have a feeling its on your end.

      You don’t have a BlackBerry, you don’t have BBM voice, you’re making that up.
      Don’t drag the rest of us into your fantasy world…

    I have to give it to RIM. all this leaks are organized and enticing. i guess will have to wait for January 30th for full disclosure

  • bilzkh

    Can’t wait! I just hope RIM releases an attractively priced mid-range BB10 devices at launch, would love one.

    • Piff

      Personally I wouldn’t count on a mid-range touch screen phone from RIM.

    RIM is going to have 100 000 apps in BlackBerry World for BB 10 at launch but they’re baking so much into the OS that there’s going to be allot of things on BB 10 that you just don’t need an app for. Screen share is going to be an awsome frature.

    For all the critics that were saying that RIM was going to have a 1.0 OS or a repeat of the Playbook with missing features, BlackBerry 10 is looking to prove them all wrong and we haven’t even seen it all yet.

      good luck, all OS’s will only survive as long as “apps” and “developers” develop for it

    RIP RIM !!!!

  • Piff

    Ok RIM, you now have my full attention. It’s either a BB10 phone or a new 2013 Nexus device.

    So before I was moderately interested in BB10, but made a promise to myself that I’d keep my android for at least another year or two… I think I might officially be breaking that promise now that we’re seeing RIM really bring it’s A game to the table.

    We’re starting to see some very intuitive things come out of RIm now, like its evolution of its once killer app BBM into something so
    powerfull that BB10’s won’t even need skype!

    I’m pretty sure I know what phone I’m getting next year.
