BBM has now made it's way to the Amazon App Store and the news gives potential BBM users a choice from where to download BBM from for their Android devices. The Amazon app store comes pre-loaded in the new BlackBerry OS 10.3.1 that is being pushed out today, so that is a bonus to people who hadn't updated to a leaked 10.3.1 because it brings a lot more choices for downloading games, music and apps.
This latest version supports Lollipop 5.0 Android OS and includes apps, stickers, games, music, and other services and BlackBerry has no qualms about monetizing the BBM brand stating, "As part of the monetization plan for BBM, we’re growing our user base with a cross-platform strategy, expanding BBM beyond the BlackBerry operating system and bringing Android, iOS, and Windows Phone users into (and back to) the fold."
So, go check out the Amazon app store on your Android phone and download BBM if you don't have it. You won't regret it.
