Download BBM 2.0 for iPhone and Android Devices

BlackBerry says they are gonna Android and iPhone users a new BBM app that will involve some features found in the BM for BlackBerry 10 devices. Yesterday, that promise was fulfilled with BlackBerry releasing BBM 2.0 which brings BBM Channels, BBM Voice and other nice enhancements to both BBM on Android and iOS devices.
BBM Channels
BBM Channels is that platform where BBM users can chat with another in any topic that interests them; more or less a forum where you can share thoughts, ideas and even experiences. 

The forum has different topics ranging from Sports, Entertainment, Technology, movies and other interesting topics. The good part is that you can create Channels too and share it with  your friends so everyone can discuss whatever it is that catch their fancy.

Location Sharing
The boys behind BBM development for non-BlackBerry devices have added a new feature to BBM. This new feature allows you to share your location for a limited amount of time. 

This can be very useful if you have people expecting you and they are wondering you are. With the help of Glympse, you can easily share your location for people to see.

BBM Voice
BBM voice is a much anticipated feature that people want cos you it may end up reducing the cost making network calls especially when you have lots of friends on t he BBM app.

Now you can share voice notes, pictures and even calendar with events on it. This is a good thing and you guys would definitely love it.

New Emoticons
Sometimes last year, BlackBerry wanted us to suggest some new emoticons that can be integrated in  the BBM app. With BBM 2.0 good suggested new emoticons have been added into the app so that you better express yourself without having to type too much.

The number of emoticons have now been bumped to 100: expressing yourself just gets better with this improved BBM.

Other features of BBM 2.0 includes the ability to select images from Dropbox and also to add up to 50 persons in a group chat. 

The guys over at BlackBerry mean business and they are ready to get you to use BBM more frequently on your Apple and Android devices.

You can download BBM 2.0 from Google Play Store (direct link) on your Android device running Android 4.0 and above  or go to Apple App Store to download for your iOS device.

For those with Android tabs, you can download from this link
