Windows Phone version of BBM drops the 'beta"
posted by Alan F. / Aug 16, 2014, 9:56 AM
The version of BBM in the Windows Phone Store is now 1.0.1, and adds some bug fixes and improvements. For example, BlackBerry has cut the load time of the app and has fixed an issue where the app would display in English even though the device was set for Spanish.
BlackBerry has produced BBM for Windows with the exact look and feel of the Windows Phone UI. BBM and 1 to 1 chats can be pinned to the start screen for quick accessibility. The messaging app is ready for you to download from the Windows Phone Store.

I stopped using BBM for android a long time ago.I don't see many people using BBM these days,It just feels like an overhyped product which failed to deliver.

Well that's blatantly not true at all. BBM is succeeding. 115+ million userbase. 85 million are daily active users of which I am one. BBM Channels and BBM Groups are flourishing. 10,000 WP users signed up within the first 24 hours of it being available alone. Just because you don't know anyone using it, doesn't mean it's not being used. I personally only know 2 people who use the iPhone. Doesn't mean it's failing or not being used.

IE is cool but I've limited data package and no WiFi at home so operamini would've been great with its compression tech and browsing experience.I'm using lumia 520 and the great news is that cyan update has rolled out officially for 520 here in india. Best low end phone i hav ever used .

We love our 2%. We know better than to think market. share is a reflection of the product. WP is a bomb ass OS. Better than any other OS for myself and others. Stay with your OS let WP enjoy theirs, no need to bash.
