BBM on Galaxy smartphones series.





Samsung electronics has disclosed that BBM, the social network is now available for free download in its GALAXY smartphones across Africa from the Google play store.

With this development, Samsung users will join a vibrant community of 60 million BlackBerry smartphones customers who rely on BBM to stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues every day.
With this also, BBM for Android can be downloaded for free from the Google Play Store on 21st September 2013 and is compatible with GALAXY smartphone devices that run Android 4.0 and above. Data charges may apply, as determined by local operators and service providers.


Accordingly, Samsung GALAXY smartphone users will have access to an extensive range of BBM features, including BBM chats and multi-person chats with BBM groups, as well as the ability to share photos and voice notes.
However, BBM will form part of Samsung’s messaging hub as a complementary addition to the current slate of propriety and third party messaging services that Samsung customers enjoy.


“We are pleased to officially announce that BBM will be available for Samsung GALAXY smartphones across Africa,” Emmanouil Revmatas, Director of Hand Held Products, Samsung Electronics West Africa, said, adding that , “We are focused on driving consumer experiences based on customisation to suit every lifestyle. By offering an additional messaging service through our Samsung Messaging Hub, it has never been easier to stay connected. This is another way that we are providing our customers with a more integrated lifestyle experience and a powerful new way of communicating and sharing. It’s really about giving the African market what they want – and what they want is choice.”

For Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President for BBM at BlackBerry., “We are excited to welcome Samsung customers in Africa to the global BBM community,” said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President for BBM at BlackBerry. “Samsung customers will enjoy the conversational immediacy that BBM offers with the distinctive ‘R’ that lets you know your message has been read. They’ll also be pleased with the control BBM gives them over their contact lists and how they share their information. Every BBM customer gets a unique PIN, so you don’t have to give out your phone number or email address to a new or casual contact.”
