BlackBerry Messenger adds BBM Voice support to BlackBerry OS 5 devices


Ah, BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) — the much-adored service that keeps the BlackBerry community connected. It changed the way BlackBerry customers communicate through instant messaging, shared groups and calendars, not to mention BBM Voice Chat and, on BlackBerry 10, BBM Video. Today, I’m happy to announce that an update has been made to BBM that adds BBM Voice support to BlackBerry OS 5 devices, so that even more of you can enjoy free voice calls over Wi-Fi via BBM.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with BBM Voice check out this quick video of how it works:

So, who’s excited? Old pros who’ve already been using BBM Voice for a while, be sure to welcome BlackBerry OS 5 users to the fold, and share your tips below in the comments.

BBM 7.0.1 is available for download in BlackBerry World — please note that it may take up to 24 hours to appear in the BlackBerry World storefront.
