The app looks very similar to how it does for the Blackberry 10 software with tabs across the bottom of the display along with the interface you would use for accessing contacts and groups that will look familiar to anyone used to the BB10 software. Most of the details, all the way down to the chime that is used for the new messages are similar to the original application. Now that Blackberry has launched a couple of new devices, it seems that the company is starting to get back into the smartphone game since Android and Apple had taken over years ago.
Analysts in the mobile market are thinking that the BBM coming to Android or iOS might be too little, too late, but the fact that Blackberry is trying to dig itself out of the bottom of the pile that it has been under for years now. There are plenty of options for smartphone users to use for instant messaging their friends, but with problems that third party apps bring to the game, it will be nice to have yet another branded option when the Blackberry Messenger application finally launches for the Android powered devices out on the market.
