A few weeks ago there was a rumour that BlackBerry would possibly bring its popular messaging service BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) to the desktop. Looks like there’s progression and truth to this rumour.
During BlackBerry Jam Asia 2013, Chris Smith, VP of Application Platform at BlackBerry, showed off BBM on the desktop. Apparently the quick demo was on a Windows PC and isn’t a stand alone app, but a mirror of what appears on the users BB10 device – sounds like a screen share. The app allowed for quick conversations, attached files, send photos and works over Wi-Fi.
BlackBerry is reportedly working on a having BBM for Desktop available to Mac users, but there’s still no indication of when or if this will officially be rolled out.
