• [Update] BlackBerry Launches BBM Channels Open Beta, Now In BlackBerry Beta Zone

    Update 12:00pm EST: The BlackBerry Beta Zone has gone live with the new BBM beta. Check out the BlackBerry Beta Zone to join!


    BlackBerry has announced this morning a new feature for BlackBerry Messenger called Channels. In essence, Channels is a bit like expanded Groups, that gives brands and individuals control over their content and allows them to share it with their subscribers.

    Anyone can create or subscribe to a channel as each channel, like anything on BBM, has its own PIN. Brands and individuals can post that PIN openly and have their fans connect with them over their channel.

    On your channel, you can post pictures, and worded content to share with your subscribers, who can then in turn like, and comment on your channel's posts.
