BBM For Android Gains Beta Video Chat Support, Coming Soon To IOS

By 05:25 Mon, 02 Aug 2021 Comments

The latest update of BBM for Android, which should already be out in the Play Store, brings with it a much-requested feature: video chats. BBM has had support for video calls on BlackBerry Operating System (OS) 10, but this is now finally making its way to the two gigantic mobile platforms - a release for iOS is apparently coming soon.

Over in the Android app, the video chat functionality is still in beta, and marked as such. Hence, some hiccups may occur. Also, to create sure nothing will break with its backdiscontinue infrastructure, BlackBerry is currently limiting the rollout of the recent feature to the US and Canada. All the kinks should be ironed out before the global rollout commences. That, by the way, is going to happen in July.

Until then, you can test video calling inside BBM (even cross-platform), but only in North America. It all works in a very simple manner - when you tap the icon to initiate a call with one of your contacts, the app will ask you if you want to create a voice call or a video call. You choose, and then you're connected. That's it. Obviously, for this to work the contact you want to video chat with also has to have the latest version of BBM.
