In a world filled with free communication apps like Viber, WhatsApp, Facebook (and Messenger), Google Hangouts and iMessage, BlackBerry Messenger was able to carve a serious user base for itself it just a week.
Since the BBM rollout on iOS and Android resumed 7 days ago, BBM has gathered 20 million new users.
That’s active users and not just downloads and is a serious step up from the 5 million in the opening 8 hours of up time.
BlackBerry has also announced that it has removed the waiting in line on iOS and Android and users can now activate BBM right away.
BBM is regarded as a top tier communication tool. It features a more secure way of sharing your information (not everyone that has your mobile number can see your information), as well as delivered and read statuses.
