We’ve got some exciting BBM news for Android Gingerbread users – you’ve been asking and we’ve heard you loud and clear. We’re now pleased to announce that BBM will soon also be available on Android Devices running Gingerbread(v2.3.3+).

The team at BBM has been busy in the kitchen over the last few months cooking up this special release of BBM for Android smartphones running Gingerbread and are now moving into an external beta ahead of the launch in February. We couldn’t be more excited, too! Supporting Gingerbread will allow millions more Android users to download the popular BBM instant messaging app.

According to the most recent Android Developer Dashboard published on January 8, 2014 , Gingerbread represented about 21 per cent of the total Android platform. That’s a lot of Gingerbread! We’re looking forward to adding you all to our BBM contact list.
