BlackBerry Messenger users are finally set to receive video calling this week, as the much sought after feature is now rolling out to the app. However, BlackBerry is initially limiting the availability of BBM Video Calling to Android users in Canada and the US, as it collects performance data and monitors feedback ahead of a wider roll out.
BlackBerry seems to think that the timing of its new feature is just right, citing that the number of US adults making video calls from their smartphones rose from 33 to 47 percent between 2013 and 2015.
BBM Video Calling will be available once you’ve updated the app to its latest version, providing that you live in North America. BlackBerry says that Android users will be able to video call with their iPhone and iPad owning buddies in the near future as well. The option is scheduled to give live around the world some time in July.
