Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U

Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U.S., Latin America, Middle East AND Europe and Africa

(Updated June 15th with European and African availability)

BBM users have been clamoring for movie calling (as you reminded me in your comments on my latest BBM: Getting Better All the Time post). We’re thrilled to announce that movie calling is almost ready for primetime; we’ve launched it (see right) as a beta feature for Android and iOS, as part of the latest version of BBM. Update your BBM to get it (or if you are in Europe, Africa, Latin America or the Middle East – it should’ve began working for you automatically during the month of June).

Please note we originally limited availability because this is the very first time we’re launching BBM Movie calling, and we want to monitor spectacle, gather feedback, and metal out any kinks that may arise before we roll it out globally.

(Note: BlackBerry ten users already love movie calls with other BlackBerry ten users over BBM.)

The beta movie feature is available in U.S. and Canada to Android and iOS users. U.S. and Canadian BBM users now love cross-platform movie calling with each other.

On June 1st, (beta) movie calling arrived to iOS and Android users in twenty six countries in Latin America. They include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin, Uruguay and Venezuela. If you are in those countries, the movie talk feature should just be enabled now – no need to update your BBM software.

We also flipped out movie calling capability to users in seventeen Middle Eastern countries on June 8th. Among them are Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Yemen, and others.

As in Latin America, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

BBM movie debuted in one hundred nine countries, territories and regions in Europe and Africa on June 14th. There’s too many to name here, but chances are good that BBM movie is now working where you are.

As above, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

Note: only movie calls within the supported regions can be done today. We plan to launch BBM movie calling globally in our July release.

There’s no sign-up or approval required to use the feature. When you tap the icon to initiate a call with one of your BBM contacts, BBM will ask whether you want to make a voice call or attempt a movie call with the beta feature (provided your contact is also eligible to participate).

Android: OS Four.Four (KitKat) and higher

iOS: iOS eight and higher

BBM users are on-trend in their enthusiasm for movie calling. A latest Pew Research explore shows that in the U.S., the number of adults making movie calls from their smartphones rose by double-digits from 33% in two thousand thirteen to 47% in 2015.

What’s driving the enthusiasm? Elementary: mobile movie conferencing is now a reality. Globally, mobile bandwidth is enhancing with the rollout of 4G networks, and devices now have the cameras, software and power that make it possible. Sure, there are some screenplays where good, old-fashioned voice is the better solution. But increasingly, movie is taking over as our no. One communication technology.

Movie is the closest thing to being physically present. We know why that’s more significant for private calls—bridging the distance with our loved ones, like helping grandparents see their grandkids grow. In healthcare, doctors are using movie calling to collaborate across distances and save lives, like at Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai.

In business, live movie helps people put faces to names, virtually meet job candidates, make decisions in real time, and save tremendously on travel expenses. Even back in 2013, this Redshift Research probe sponsored by Polycom exposed 96% of business decision makers thought that movie conferencing eliminated distance barriers, improving productivity among teams spread across different locations. Now that movie calling is a regular part of many businesses’ communication implements, anecdotally, we know that’s true.

It’s joy to look back at the predictions from just a few years ago about movie conferencing, like this one. It makes me think of being a kid, eyeing movie conferencing on The Jetsons and Starlet Trek, and wondering if it would ever be possible. As futuristic as they were, one thing those shows didn’t predict was mobility. That would have seemed even more far-fetched! But here we are. (However, The Jetsons are still ahead of us on the “morning mask” idea.)

As futuristic as they were, one thing those shows didn’t predict was mobility. That would have seemed even more far-fetched! But here we are.

Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U

Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U.S., Latin America, Middle East AND Europe and Africa

(Updated June 15th with European and African availability)

BBM users have been clamoring for movie calling (as you reminded me in your comments on my latest BBM: Getting Better All the Time post). We’re thrilled to announce that movie calling is almost ready for primetime; we’ve launched it (see right) as a beta feature for Android and iOS, as part of the latest version of BBM. Update your BBM to get it (or if you are in Europe, Africa, Latin America or the Middle East – it should’ve embarked working for you automatically during the month of June).

Please note we primarily limited availability because this is the very first time we’re launching BBM Movie calling, and we want to monitor spectacle, gather feedback, and metal out any kinks that may arise before we roll it out globally.

(Note: BlackBerry ten users already love movie calls with other BlackBerry ten users over BBM.)

The beta movie feature is available in U.S. and Canada to Android and iOS users. U.S. and Canadian BBM users now love cross-platform movie calling with each other.

On June 1st, (beta) movie calling arrived to iOS and Android users in twenty six countries in Latin America. They include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin, Uruguay and Venezuela. If you are in those countries, the movie talk feature should just be enabled now – no need to update your BBM software.

We also flipped out movie calling capability to users in seventeen Middle Eastern countries on June 8th. Among them are Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Yemen, and others.

As in Latin America, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

BBM movie debuted in one hundred nine countries, territories and regions in Europe and Africa on June 14th. There’s too many to name here, but chances are good that BBM movie is now working where you are.

As above, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

Note: only movie calls within the supported regions can be done today. We plan to launch BBM movie calling globally in our July release.

There’s no sign-up or approval required to use the feature. When you tap the icon to initiate a call with one of your BBM contacts, BBM will ask whether you want to make a voice call or attempt a movie call with the beta feature (provided your contact is also eligible to participate).

Android: OS Four.Four (KitKat) and higher

iOS: iOS eight and higher

BBM users are on-trend in their enthusiasm for movie calling. A latest Pew Research investigate shows that in the U.S., the number of adults making movie calls from their smartphones rose by double-digits from 33% in two thousand thirteen to 47% in 2015.

What’s driving the enthusiasm? Plain: mobile movie conferencing is now a reality. Globally, mobile bandwidth is enhancing with the rollout of 4G networks, and devices now have the cameras, software and power that make it possible. Sure, there are some screenplays where good, old-fashioned voice is the better solution. But increasingly, movie is taking over as our no. One communication technology.

Movie is the closest thing to being physically present. We know why that’s more significant for private calls—bridging the distance with our loved ones, like helping grandparents see their grandkids grow. In healthcare, doctors are using movie calling to collaborate across distances and save lives, like at Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai.

In business, live movie helps people put faces to names, virtually meet job candidates, make decisions in real time, and save tremendously on travel expenses. Even back in 2013, this Redshift Research explore sponsored by Polycom exposed 96% of business decision makers thought that movie conferencing eliminated distance barriers, improving productivity among teams spread across different locations. Now that movie calling is a regular part of many businesses’ communication implements, anecdotally, we know that’s true.

In healthcare, doctors are using movie calling to collaborate across distances and save lives, like at Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai.

In business, live movie helps people put faces to names, virtually meet job candidates, make decisions in real time, and save tremendously on travel expenses. Even back in 2013, this Redshift Research explore sponsored by Polycom exposed 96% of business decision makers thought that movie conferencing liquidated distance barriers, improving productivity among teams spread across different locations. Now that movie calling is a regular part of many businesses’ communication instruments, anecdotally, we know that’s true.

It’s joy to look back at the predictions from just a few years ago about movie conferencing, like this one. It makes me think of being a kid, observing movie conferencing on The Jetsons and Starlet Trek, and wondering if it would ever be possible. As futuristic as they were, one thing those shows didn’t predict was mobility. That would have seemed even more far-fetched! But here we are. (However, The Jetsons are still ahead of us on the “morning mask” idea.)

Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U

Updated: BBM Movie Comes to iPhone and Android Users in Canada, U.S., Latin America, Middle East AND Europe and Africa

(Updated June 15th with European and African availability)

BBM users have been clamoring for movie calling (as you reminded me in your comments on my latest BBM: Getting Better All the Time post). We’re thrilled to announce that movie calling is almost ready for primetime; we’ve launched it (see right) as a beta feature for Android and iOS, as part of the latest version of BBM. Update your BBM to get it (or if you are in Europe, Africa, Latin America or the Middle East – it should’ve began working for you automatically during the month of June).

Please note we primarily limited availability because this is the very first time we’re launching BBM Movie calling, and we want to monitor spectacle, gather feedback, and metal out any kinks that may arise before we roll it out globally.

(Note: BlackBerry ten users already love movie calls with other BlackBerry ten users over BBM.)

The beta movie feature is available in U.S. and Canada to Android and iOS users. U.S. and Canadian BBM users now love cross-platform movie calling with each other.

On June 1st, (beta) movie calling arrived to iOS and Android users in twenty six countries in Latin America. They include Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Martinique, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Saint Barthelemy, Saint Martin, Uruguay and Venezuela. If you are in those countries, the movie talk feature should just be enabled now – no need to update your BBM software.

We also spinned out movie calling capability to users in seventeen Middle Eastern countries on June 8th. Among them are Bahrain, Cyprus, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Yemen, and others.

As in Latin America, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

BBM movie debuted in one hundred nine countries, territories and regions in Europe and Africa on June 14th. There’s too many to name here, but chances are good that BBM movie is now working where you are.

As above, the feature should be enabled without you needing to update your BBM software.

Note: only movie calls within the supported regions can be done today. We plan to launch BBM movie calling globally in our July release.

There’s no sign-up or approval required to use the feature. When you tap the icon to initiate a call with one of your BBM contacts, BBM will ask whether you want to make a voice call or attempt a movie call with the beta feature (provided your contact is also eligible to participate).

Android: OS Four.Four (KitKat) and higher

iOS: iOS eight and higher

BBM users are on-trend in their enthusiasm for movie calling. A latest Pew Research probe shows that in the U.S., the number of adults making movie calls from their smartphones rose by double-digits from 33% in two thousand thirteen to 47% in 2015.

What’s driving the enthusiasm? Ordinary: mobile movie conferencing is now a reality. Globally, mobile bandwidth is enlargening with the rollout of 4G networks, and devices now have the cameras, software and power that make it possible. Sure, there are some scripts where good, old-fashioned voice is the better solution. But increasingly, movie is taking over as our no. One communication technology.

Movie is the closest thing to being physically present. We know why that’s more significant for individual calls—bridging the distance with our loved ones, like helping grandparents see their grandkids grow.

BBM users are on-trend in their enthusiasm for movie calling. A latest Pew Research explore shows that in the U.S., the number of adults making movie calls from their smartphones rose by double-digits from 33% in two thousand thirteen to 47% in 2015.

What’s driving the enthusiasm? Plain: mobile movie conferencing is now a reality. Globally, mobile bandwidth is enlargening with the rollout of 4G networks, and devices now have the cameras, software and power that make it possible. Sure, there are some screenplays where good, old-fashioned voice is the better solution. But increasingly, movie is taking over as our no. One communication technology.

Movie is the closest thing to being physically present. We know why that’s more significant for private calls—bridging the distance with our loved ones, like helping grandparents see their grandkids grow. In healthcare, doctors are using movie calling to collaborate across distances and save lives, like at Hiranandani Hospital in Mumbai.

In business, live movie helps people put faces to names, virtually meet job candidates, make decisions in real time, and save tremendously on travel expenses. Even back in 2013, this Redshift Research probe sponsored by Polycom exposed 96% of business decision makers thought that movie conferencing liquidated distance barriers, improving productivity among teams spread across different locations. Now that movie calling is a regular part of many businesses’ communication contraptions, anecdotally, we know that’s true.

It’s joy to look back at the predictions from just a few years ago about movie conferencing, like this one. It makes me think of being a kid, eyeing movie conferencing on The Jetsons and Starlet Trek, and wondering if it would ever be possible. As futuristic as they were, one thing those shows didn’t predict was mobility. That would have seemed even more far-fetched! But here we are. (However, The Jetsons are still ahead of us on the “morning mask” idea.)
