BlackBerry releases BBM SDK for developers who want to include BBM into their apps
BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) was once among the most popular messenger apps for mobile devices. Although the Canadian company behind the messenger continues to improve the app pretty often, the competition is fierce and BBM kind of fell behind.
However, BlackBerry is focusing on bringing its messaging services to an entirely different target: enterprise businesses. Today, BlackBerry announced the BBM SDK is available to all developers who want to include the messengers into their Android or iOS apps.
The BBM Enterprise SDK allows devs to create secure voice, chat, and video into enterprise apps much easier and costlier. Since the limited release of the SDK earlier this year, BlackBerry says that more than 60 partners are building and embedding apps using the BBM Enterprise SDK for Android and iOS devices.
Moreover, the SDK is built on BlackBerry's Network Operating Center (NOC), which should provide developers with more scalability and reliability.
