Windows Phone has been without BBM since the platform launched way back in 2010. Today, BlackBerry and Nokia both announced that the messaging service would be on Microsoft's mobile platform soon. Consumers can look to expect BBM this summer, according to an official BlackBerry blog post.
Not only will BBM be released for Windows Phone, but BlackBerry will also be working with Nokia on its new Nokia X platform. John Sims, President of Global Enterprise Solutions at BlackBerry commented on the announcement:
"BBM continues to grow in popularity as millions of people use our mobile platform for chatting and connecting with friends or colleagues, and we are very excited that we will soon welcome Windows Phone and Nokia X users to the BBM community."
The blog post ends with a quick note about the BBM team working hard on both solutions, along with loads of great new features. Are you excited to see BBM finally make it to Windows Phone?
