Samsung has brought BBM to its Smartphone users in Sub-Saharan Africa. To get the app with a Samsung phone, visit BBM.com. You will be connected to the BBM page in the Samsung App Store in order to download the BBM app. Once the app has been installed, open it and enter an active email address. This will ensure that the user is placed in a queuing system.
Notification will be sent via that email when you have reached the front of the line, to launch the application and officially sign-in and start using BBM.
“The anticipation is high. We are delighted that we are able to offer our loyal customers an advantage to download BBM. We are confident users will enjoy the Samsung experience to which they have become accustomed,” said George Ferreira, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Samsung Electronics Africa.
“We are continuously enhancing our offering to ensure our users benefit from high quality innovations and partnerships to live a connected lifestyle of communicating and sharing with friends, family and colleagues every day,” continues Ferreira. BBM offers Samsung GALAXY Smartphone users an extensive range of features, including BBM chat (one to one or multi-person chat), BBM Groups that let customers invite up to 30 friends to chat together, as well as the ability to share photos and voice notes.
“We are excited to work with Samsung to launch BBM to their customers in sub-Saharan Africa,” said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President for BBM at BlackBerry. “Samsung customers will discover what makes BBM so popular – they’ll enjoy a fast, reliable and engaging mobile messaging experience.”
