If you are still doing your level best to keep the BlackBerry flag flying high and mighty, we commend you for your efforts, even though if many people around you think that you are on a sinking ship. Well, good news for all you faithful BlackBerry followers out there, it seems that there is enough evidence picked up to bring you word that RIM will most probably introduce a new feature for its popular BBM service, calling it BBM Video, which would mean the ability to carry out video conversations.
BBM Video is not the official name just yet as it has not been mentioned at all by any of RIM’s executives or officials, but it seems that the latest BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha update did confirm its existence thanks to a folder known as “bbm_video”, where within it lies an audio file that was named “video_chat.m4a”. What do you think? Just in case you were wondering, this is the very same file that offered a similar ringtone which is used by the video chat app on the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
