It seems as if BBM Channels has been in beta forever, but today that comes to an end as BlackBerry is removing the 'beta' tag and releasing the latest version of BBM in BlackBerry World.
The updated version will be available for both BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS devices so most BlackBerry users will be able to enjoy the latest version.
As well as Channels, the new version of BBM brings improvements to make it more engaging and dynamic than it was before the beta programme was launched. The current version in the Beta Zone i very solid and appears to be considered the 'must have' version within the BlackBerry community.
Keep your eye on BlackBerry World - we should be seeing BBM launch at 3PM EST.
