#BBM for #Android and #iPhone Reaches 20 million downloads.










BlackBerry has proved there is still demand for its BBM service with the firm claiming its app has been downloaded 20 million times in the last week by Android and iOS users.

The smartphone maker claims that it now has 80 million people actively using the BBM service, although this is still someway short of the 300 million users of existing cross-platform service Whatsapp.

Andrew Bocking, executive VP of BBM at BlackBerry said he was happy with the numbers, but the firm will now focus on providing more services.

“From here on out, we will focus on active users of BBM and will no longer focus on simple download numbers," he said.
BBM is available as a free download in the Google Play marketApple App Store and select Samsung App Stores. However, due to high demand for the app BlackBerry has been limiting access.

Users who signed up at BBM.com, will get a headstart and should be able to use BBM on their Android or iOS device immediately. Those who didn't sign up will have to register and wait for an email before they can activate the app.

Despite the delay, uptake of BBM has proved incredibly popular, with the @BBM confirming the ten million user mark had been surpassed.
