BlackBerry Releases BBM SDK, Lets Developers Embed BBM into iOS and Android Apps
BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) was once among the most popular messaging apps in the world for mobile devices, but the Canadian company has fallen behind in the messenger game over the past few years.
However, BlackBerry is now focusing on bringing its messaging service back to the enterprise business. Today, the company announced the BBM SDK which will allow developers to include the messenger into their iOS or Android apps.
The BBM Enterprise SDK allows developers to easily integrate secure voice, chat, and video into their apps. Since its limited release earlier this year, BlackBerry has announced that more than 60 partners are building and embedding BBM messenger into their apps.
The SDK has been built on BlackBerry’s Network Operating Center, which should provide developers scalability and reliability.
