BBM finally gets Video Calling
The beta of this feature requires Android 4.4 KitKat or later, but there is no special opt-in or sign up required - users simply need to use the BlackBerry Messenger app as usual.

BlackBerry Messenger users who have been waiting for the video calling feature finally get their wish granted this week, although there is also a twist. Probably the most important part is that BBM gets the video calling capability in a beta stage for now - if you have no problem with this, then read on.

According to BlackBerry's Matthew Talbot, the beta video calling for BBM on Android has been released earlier this week. Video calling for iPad and iPhone users "is also coming soon," he added. The only requirement to take part in the testing of this new feature is to update BBM to the latest version and choose to use video calling when the option shows up. However, only users in Canada and the US can access it for now. The software requirements should be easily met, as BBM with video calling requires Android 4.4+ and iOS 8+.

BlackBerry plans to roll out video calling for BlackBerry Messenger globally in July.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
