Beta version of BBM for Android gets voice calling and Channels

BBM Audio CallsThe BBM app for Android and iOS devices was launched a few months ago to massive public demand. However, there are very few who still use the app. And in order to make things interesting for them, BlackBerry was reported to be working on bringing voice and video call features to the app. One of these features has now made its way to the Beta version of the BBM Android app. There’s still no word on when this will make its way out of Beta and hit the consumer version, but it’s good to know what’s going on behind the scenes at BlackBerry.

The app also gets something known as Channels which broke cover only two months ago on BlackBerry 10 smartphones. This basically lets users interact with other BBM users regarding a topic of common interest. Users can also create their own Channels and let people from all over the world comment and drop their opinion. These features make its way with version 200.0.0.138 of the beta release, which isn’t accessible to all, obviously. But if you’re lucky enough to have access to the Beta release of BBM for Android, make sure you give the updated BBM a look.
