BBM getting full Android Wear support

Apps, BlackBerry, Smartwatches, Wearables

Blackberry has announced that it will be adding full support for Android Wear smartwatches to its BBM messenger service.


In a blog post for the company, Jesse Ariss explained that new functionality will enable you to:

  • See who a new message is from and read it
  • Review and accept invites from would-be BBM contacts while on the go
  • Flip through several messages to find that one with the address you’re looking for
  • Pick from a list of pre-defined messages to quickly send a response

So pretty standard Messenger stuff – but it is good to see Blackberry keeping pace on our wrists.

There’s no date when it is due to launch but it is said to be “coming soon”.
