BBM for Android and iPhone Update


UPDATE: BBM roll out continues today. Get the details here: — Donny H., October 21, 2013

Prior to launching BBM for Android, an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online. The interest and enthusiasm we have seen already – more than 1.1 million active users in the first 8 hours without even launching the official Android app – is incredible. Consequently, this unreleased version caused issues, which we have attempted to address throughout the day.

Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it’s ready and we know it will live up to your expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global roll-out of BBM for Android and iPhone. Customers who have already downloaded BBM for iPhone will be able to continue to use BBM. The unreleased Android app will be disabled, and customers who downloaded it should visit to register for updates on official BBM for Android availability.

As soon as we are able, we will begin a staggered country roll-out of BBM for Android and continue the roll-out of BBM for iPhone. Please follow @BBM on Twitter for the latest updates and go to to sign-up for updates about BBM for Android and iPhone. These issues have not impacted BBM service for BlackBerry.

    How long are we roughly going to be waiting for this app to be fixed

  • jeet

    Thanks for update.i appreciate it. Only concern how and who leaked unofficial BBM? What steps BB will take to safe android users data? It looks to me competitor’s implicit disgusting attempt.

  • Brandon

    Thank you BB for finally posting an official statement. Figured faux versions of BBM were causing issues but BlackBerry took too long to release a statement. Posted from my Z10 (which is a great phone with a great OS, too bad more don’t realize it. )

    Hi, previously I have installed BESX and have been sent these details by email.

    For BES10 I only received the License Key and serial with the software download link. How do I get hold of the SRP ID and SRP Auth key,

  • fresh
