BlackBerry will certainly have an uphill battle when launches BBM for Android and iOS in the coming weeks; while the service might have been a smash hit a few years ago, it now faces intense competition from cross-platform messaging giants like WhatsApp and Line. Despite the fact that the messaging market is ridiculously crowded right now, there is still clearly demand for BBM on other platforms like Android, and now the world has its first look at the software thanks to a video posted by BlackBerryOS.com. There aren’t really any surprises but on the plus side, BlackBerry’s Android BBM interface certainly looks a lot nicer than several market leaders. Whether or not that will be enough to carry the service forward following its launch remains to be seen. The full leaked video is embedded below.
