BBM Now with Video Calling, Do Better Late Than Ever?

After years sleeping on the laurels, appears in BlackBerry still not giving it all for lost, at least for your messaging application BlackBerry Messenger. If a month ago Advanced Privacy options were offered for free, now comes the turn to the video calls.

That Yes, this feature is now only available to users of United States and Canada. The plan is to first test its performance in these regions before extending their use globally. Video calls are cross-platform, i.e. from Android you can call anyone with BBM in iOS (BBM BlackBerry already had video calling before).

It is undeniable that arrive a little late. At this point there are many alternatives to make video calls on Android such as Skype, Hangouts, Viber, LINE, WeChat, Messenger, so the move probably not used to attract new users – good lack makes it – but to try to retain those who already has and not pass to other platforms that do deliver video calls.

If you live in the United States or Canada, or have the technology to pretend that it is, you can already try video calling, in beta, with the latest version of BBM, already available in Google Play. This feature requires Android KitKat 4.4 or higher.
