It needs to be mentioned here that the widely popular BBM app was earlier only available for devices having operating system (OS) of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich or higher.

Head of product and brand marketing for BBM, Jeff Gadway has mentioned on official blog post, "With 21 percent of the global Android user base running on Gingerbread, we're excited to welcome lots of new users in to the BBM community."

The all-popular BBM app allows its users to exchange texts, voice notes and pictures among the contacts, along with an option of group chat.

All the users need to do is to sign-in with a BlackBerry ID and a PIN will be provided to them, much like the BlackBerry Messenger on BlackBerry.

BlackBerry has recently rolled out the latest update for its BlackBerry Messenger for its Android, BlackBerry 10 and iPhone users.

Apart from that, the Android and iPhone users would be getting version 2.0 of the BBM app with the update, while BlackBerry 10 users would get the BBM v10.3 update. The biggest additions were the BBM Channels and BBM Voice features.

Previously, BlackBerry had also released an update for BBM for Android and iOS which brought the Find Friends feature.
