BBM Video Chat Makes Its Way Onto iOS And Android

BBM Video Chat Makes Its Way Onto iOS And Android:

bbm-video-betaLooking to make video chats on your smartphone? There are plenty of apps that can do that, like LINE, Skype, FaceTime, and if the rumors are to be believed, it looks like WhatsApp could soon be gaining video calling features as well. However if you are a BBM user, you might be pleased to learn that the video chat feature is rolling out to both iOS and Android devices as we speak.

This is according to a recent announcement by BlackBerry in which they announced that the feature is making its way to its iOS and Android versions of BBM. However note that the feature was previously available in beta for Android, but it looks like it has rolled out on a wider scale and will now include iOS devices.

The feature is still in beta but we guess it works well enough where BlackBerry reckons it should be usable for the most part, although they do point out, “Please note we’re initially limiting availability because this is the first time we’re launching BBM Video calling, and we want to monitor performance, gather feedback, and iron out any kinks that may arise before we roll it out globally.”

Also we should point out that the video calling feature will only be available in both the US and Canada, but BlackBerry expects that they will be able to roll it out on a global scale come July, so for our readers in other parts of the world, you guys will just have to wait for it. In the meantime you can hit up the iTunes App Store and Google Play for the latest downloads.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…
