Why BBM For Android Got Delayed

It was almost like we were been pawned by BlackBerry when a lot of us couldn't get the BlackBerry BBM app to download on the Google Play Store at the time it was supposed to be available and even hours after.

However, according to BlackBerry, 1.1 million new Android users were registered for BBM within 8 hours. This is really a staggering amount considering that the app wasn't even officially launched....This actually caused the delay.

According to BlackBerry, the usage of the unreleased BBM for Android version caused issues which they have attempted to address throughout the day.

The BBM team have released a statement as seen below

"Our teams continue to work around the clock to bring BBM to Android and iPhone, but only when it is ready and we know it will live up to expectations of BBM. We are pausing the global rollout 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. "

What these mean is that, there is an indefinite pause on the release of BBM for Android and iPhone globally until all the issues are sorted out and declared fit for use again.
