BlackBerry is certainly ahead of competition this time, since it has managed to get its BBM app up and running on the Apple Watch even before big players like WhatsApp could do the same. The smartwatch version of the messaging app can be grabbed through the App Store now.
This companion app will enable users to share photos and voice notes, apart from sending and receiving regular messages. Moreover, the newly released Apple Watch version of BBM also brings with it useful delivered and read receipts. Apart from these, a number of fresh additions have also been granted to the iPhone version of the app.
Firstly, it gets support for iOS 9’s quick reply feature, while there’s the ability to send videos in chats. Those who are fond of stickers can make the most of the Official BBM Sticker Club subscription which is being offered by the latest version of the messaging utility through the BBM Shop.
If you can recall, PayPal integration was recently introduced to BBM for allowing users to send and receive money via the app itself. This feature is finally out of beta, and can be taken advantage of by anyone who wishes to.
BlackBerry has even blessed the newest version of BBM with some improvements to its Voice connectivity. And then there’s the new ability to view, like and comment on group pictures and other events via your feeds. All these features have been complemented by bug fixes and performance improvements, according to the company.
The newest version of BBM which brings with it Apple Watch support is live now on the Apple App Store.
