BBM for Android Gingerbread smartphones is now available

If you are still holding on to your Android Gingerbread smartphone and feel terribly at loss when it comes to apps, well here is some good news for you. You can now download BBM for your Android Gingerbread OS smartphone. You can now download the BBM app from the Google Play store, even for Android 2.3 smartphones.


About 21 percent of Android users are still on Android Gingerbread , so this seems a good move on Blackberry’s side and might garner more users for BBM, which is the only thing that can be called a success currently for the company.

But BBM has more surprises in store for users of the old Android iteration – it has added new features, such as free calls to other BBM subscribers, and BlackBerry channels. You can also share, pictures, files and voice notes with other users. BlackBerry also plans to roll out the BlackBerry video chat for Android Gingerbread users.
