BlackBerry has finally released the video-calling feature of its BBM app on Android and iOS to Asia-Pacific. The feature, currently available in beta, was first introduced a couple of weeks ago to the U.S., Canada, Europe, Africa, Middle East and Latin America, allowing anyone using the app to video-call each other over BBM.
The new feature is now available for all users globally starting today, and it should be available automatically in your BBM app. The company says that this is the final phase in their systematic rollout of the feature and while it’s still in beta, it is stable.
BBM Video is available for any Android device with Android 4.4 KitKat and above, or an iPhone with iOS 8 or higher. The contact must of course, also have BBM Video on one of these devices, including BBM for BlackBerry 10.
That’s not all BlackBerry has for its BBM messaging app. BlackBerry will be introducing more features in the coming months including phone number registration, improvements to group chats, and expanded message retraction for stickers, files, and other content. Android users will be able to share larger videos with their contacts, while iOS users will be able to mute chat and group notifications.
