BBM Video now available for iOS and Android users in Europe and Africa
Earlier this year, BlackBerry finally rolled out BBM Video for iOS and Android users in the U.S. and Canada. The feature allows BBM users to enjoy cross platform video chats from inside the app. Since then, the service has become available to iOS and Android users in various regions. For example, BBM Video launched in 26 Latin America countries on June 1st. A week later, 17 countries in the Middle East also received the eagerly awaited update.

The largest launch of the feature took place on June 14th. That is when 109 countries, territories and regions in Europe and Africa all had their BBM app updated to include BBM Video. The feature will officially go global sometime next month.

BBM Video is added to the BBM app via a server-side update. This allows the feature to be included on the messaging app without the user having to update it him or herself. If you don't have BBM installed on your iOS or Android handset, the app is a free download from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Still no way to make BBM as the default SMS client on Android. I'm disappointed, but otherwise a pretty feature rich service.

Totally irrelevant to the topic at hand.

Yes, your response is.

No, your comment is. As usual.

Really? You don't even have an argument here. Do you really want to embarrass yourself again?

There's no arguing the facts. And the fact is, your comment is irrelevant to the topic at hand. This is about BBM video calling, not whether it can be used as a default SMS client on Android. Accept the truth, or get wrecked in the comments section. Again. Up to you, dudette.

The truth is just you getting butthurt at my comment just because you can't stand it when someone disagrees with you. The only thing that needs to be accepted is you always wanting to pick a fight.

Dudette, get real. You know that what you said has nothing to do with the topic at hand. It's what you always do, and everyone knows it. And I never said anything for you to disagree with in the first place, so now you're just reaching. You wouldn't have to worry about being called out for your BS if you wouldn't start the BS to begin with. Now stop playing the victim and just stick to the topic.

15. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, you get real, Princess. You're just picking a fight and you know it. Then when I call you out on it, you try and backtrack. I'm not playing the victim. Maybe you should stop playing with fire before you get burned.

Stop trying to play the victim. If you don't want to get called out for your BS, then you shouldn't spew it in the first place and then try and backtrack. You're always playing the victim. It's your M.O. And cut the BS. You're too much of a teeny, tiny spark to burn anything or anyone.

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I don't need to play the victim. It's like I said before, don't start a fire you can't put out. Plain and simple. Not my fault if you didn't understand my comment. Only until you poured the gasoline and made a roaring inferno. You cut the bs.

You always play the victim. Most cowards like you do. Your "fires" are tiny sparks, easily snuffed out by a gentle breeze. You wouldn't get called out for your BS so much if you would just quit it. The only thing even remotely "inferno"'about you is your BS and trolling.

20. Mxyzptlk unregistered

You always deflect when you get called out. It's a reoccurring thing with you. Why don't you just grow up and stop picking fights you can't win. I disagree considering how often I roast you on a daily basis.

You're deflecting now, so you have no leg to stand on when saying that I'm deflecting. You were off topic. I called you out on it. Man up, own up to your BS, and move on. And inALWAYS win in our little battles. This one will be no different. You couldn't roast a partially roasted chicken, much less me.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Whatever man. You do this every time. You complain about someone else's comment just because you are supposedly fighting the good fight. Get over it and stop complaining about a simple comment. Just take your tokens and stop picking fights you can't win.

You mean like you do on Apple related articles? Or how you troll Android articles because "Android users troll Apple articles"....those are your own words, by the way. Pull your head out of The Lake of Hypocrisy, grow up, and own up to your BS. Now quit deflecting and playing the victim. You can't be a whiny brat about your own BS every time you get called out on it.

24. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Stop deflecting and pinning the blame on someone else. I think you should take your own advice and stop living in Hypocrisy Land. I'm not playing the victim. Not my fault if you didn't understand my comment and got butthurt about it.

Leave it to you to feel that the truth is deflection, lol. Typical Mxy.m You are playing the victim, as usual. Now man up, and stop whining so much because I called you out on your BS.

28. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Only you would think your bs is the truth. Honestly this is the stupidest argument you could possibly have. I'm not playing the victim at all. You're the one who continues to attack just because you didn't understand my comment.

Of course you're going to say it's stupid. Don't get mad at me because I called you out on your BS. And what's to understand? You were off topic, and I mentioned it. Stop being so bumburned about it.

30. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Whatever man. Just let it go. This argument is really pointless. You got butthurt about a simple comment, so just let it go and stop picking fights.

The minute you shut up about it, it will be done. You can say it's "pointless" all you want, but the only thing "pointless" about it is you trying to argue that you didn't say something irrelevant to the topic at hand, and now you're bumburned and playing the victim.

32. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Like I said before, whatever. You're just picking fights just to be picking them. What I said wasn't irrelevant at all. You're just mad because you're bumburned. No, this argument is done. NOW.

Dudette, you pick fights constantly on several articles. Now get out of the Lake of Hypocrisy, and quit playing the victim. It makes you look more pathetic than usual. What you said was irrelevant to the topic at hand. This article has nothing to do with BBM being used as an SMS client for Android. It's about BBM video for Android and iOS. Learn to read, and you just might understand what's posted one day. NOW this argument is over. You're dismissed.

34. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Whatever man. Like I said before, this argument is done. You were put in your place for trying to pick a fight. Just stfu and let it go. You're done.

35. meanestgenius

Posts: 22107; Member since: May 28, 2014

Then stfu and go continue to play the victim like you normally do. As I said, you're dismissed.

36. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, you stop picking fights and getting mad when you're called out. This argument is done.

37. meanestgenius

Posts: 22107; Member since: May 28, 2014

As I said, you're dismissed. Now shoo, fly.

38. Mxyzptlk unregistered

No, I'm dismissed because I said it's over. Get lost. You're done.

Didn't I say you were dismissed? Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.
