BlackBerry Ltd. says the launch of its free BBM app for iPhones and Android devices has brought in 20 million new active users of the popular chat service.
It was just a week ago that the embattled smartphone maker resumed the rollout of the app, having hit a snag earlier. In the first 24 hours alone, it boasted 10 million downloads.
“BBM has now ended its first week with more than 80 million monthly active users, including over 20 million new users on Android and iPhone devices,” the Canadian company said in a statement.
