Microsoft will be welcoming another popular app to the Windows Phone Store shortly.
Nokia’s Stephen Elop announced at Mobile World Congress that BlackBerry’s popular BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) will be available on Windows Phone Lumia devices “in the coming months.” However, BlackBerry has taken a step further in its press release and declared the app will be available to download on Windows Phone closer to this summer. In addition, BBM will also be available on the Nokia X — its new suite of Android phones — “when the Nokia X platform launches.”
All the features will be included, such BBM Channels, BBM Voice, Chats and even the new emoticons.
BBM coming to Windows Phone was rumoured to be happening right after BlackBerry launched the app for iPhone and Android. With this coming to Windows Phone, next up for BlackBerry is to make BBM available on the desktop.
