BBM Features


Why BBM?
it's way more than
just messaging.

BBM lets you chat and share with a speed, control and privacy you can’t get on other instant messenger apps. It’s the closest thing to being there in person. And with great new features, getting your message across is faster and easier than ever. Note: some features are not available for all devices. 1


BBM gives you more control with two new features. By setting a timer you can control how long contacts can view messages and pictures you share. Plus, you can ‘retract’ your message to remove it from your BBM chat if you sent it by mistake or don’t want them to have it anymore.2

Say 'hello' to BBM Voice.
Live, free calling.

BBM offers so many ways to chat, share and connect - like free voice calling1 with any BBM user anywhere in the world. As long as you and your BBM™ contact both have BBM Voice, a data plan and access to a Wi-Fi® connection, you can talk away!

*Data plan or Wi-Fi required. Please check with your carrier for costs and restrictions.
