As we all know that the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) is one of the biggest hooks the BlackBerry platform has. Blackberry originally made its mark in the world with push email,Push email is the email delivery service setup we have on our blackberry smartphones that enables us recieve and send emails from our blackberry. But in recent years it is BBM that has become the killer feature the company gets the most kudos for.BlackBerry Messenger is the must-have application that attracts people to buying a BlackBerry Smartphone and keeps them from switching to another platform when it comes to upgrade, existing users keep upgrading to newer models of the smartphone; the likes of blacberry Z10, Q10, Q5...And new users join the BBM network day by day even with the competitiveness of other platforms like the Samsung galaxy S3, S4 series and iphone5.
We all know that the Blackberry Messenger app BBM is the major focus and the reason why users of the smartphone pledge loyalty to the company, without the BBM app the smartphone wouldn't be a world class hit or so pronouced like it is right now. Coupled with iterative updates on the BBM app like the voice calling, video calling and the screen sharing features that are available on newer blackberry os with the new coss-platform development by Blackberry bringing the BBM on Android and IOS platforms, the Blackberry Messaging Application will be here for a long time.
