Popular messaging service: BBM coming to Windows Phone (in coming months)


Nokia announced today at the MWC2014 in Barcelona that popular messaging service: BBM will be making its way to the Windows Phone platform.

As you might be aware, BBM was once the most popular messaging service and was exclusive to Blackberry users and was only released on iOS and Android last year, while Windows Phone was left out.

Though it is no longer the dominant messaging app, with the likes of Whatsapp, Viber, Line and newcomer Telegram creating stiff competition, BBM is still hugely popular in emerging markets: Nigeria, India and so on.

Releasing BBM on the Windows Phone platform will help Microsoft in these developing markets.
The downside to this news is that the app is expected to be released "in coming months" as revealed by Blackberry on their blog:

Coming months? we could be looking at an April/May release, hopefully, sooner.
