BBM for Android now has over 100 million downloads

BBM for Android

BBM hasn’t been much in the news lately. The last time we heard about it¬†was when it was reported to be getting an Android Wear app. Despite skepticism from the public initially, the app has proven to be quite successful for the Canadian manufacturer. A new report now tells us that BBM for Android has successfully surpassed 100 million downloads on the Play Store.

This still doesn’t tell us about the active users who are involved with the app though, so we’re not sure if these numbers mean a whole lot at this point. The app is over 17 months old now and reaching the 100 million milestone is a commendable feat indeed.

BlackBerry said the following on BBM reaching 100 million downloads:

“BBM for Android has officially achieved a milestone on the Google Play Store: 100 million installs. That puts BBM in the top tier of messaging apps on Google Play, and we got there in a little over a year as we first posted BBM for Android in late October 2013. We have 3.7 million reviews, and just shy of 2.4 million of them are five stars.”

The last point made by the company is quite important as it shows that customers are satisfied with the application. Are you a user of BBM?
