It has already been announced that BlackBerry Messenger for iOS and Android is going to be released this weekend. Nevertheless, a BBM for Android leaked APK has shown up online. Unlike previous leaks, this one appears to be fully functional. The official release is slated for September 21st on the Google Play Store, iOS users will have to wait just one additional day to get the once BlackBerry exclusive instant messaging client on their iPhones.
Since this is a leaked apk file, it can only be sideloaded on an Android device. Also, it is imperative to mention that this isn’t an official release. There’s no guarantee that the apk won’t cause any problems on your device. It was announced earlier this year that the messenger will finally be opened up for the two most widely used mobile platforms. Will BBM be able to compete with the likes of WhatsApp, Viber, Line and more? Only time will tell. Given the fact that there’s really not much time left till the official release, its just best to hold out until BBM for Android goes live in the Google Play Store. However, if you just can’t wait, hit up the source link for the BBM for Android leaked apk file.
