BBM for Android not coming this week: BlackBerry

Waiting for BlackBerry Messenger for Android, your wait just got a lot longer. According to a post on BlackBerry’s official blog, BBM for Android is not coming at least this week, as the company is still struggling to fix issues caused by leaked version of BBM Android app.

The company has not given any tentative release schedule, so looks like it is going to take some time.

“Last week, an unreleased, older version of the BBM for Android app was posted on numerous file sharing sites. We were aware of an issue with this unreleased version of the BBM for Android app. This older version resulted in volumes of data traffic orders of magnitude higher than normal for each active user and impacted the system in abnormal ways,” Andrew Bocking, head of BBM wrote in the blog post.

“The team is now focused on adjusting the system to completely block this unreleased version of the Android app when we go live with the official BBM for Android app. We are also making sure that the system is reinforced to handle this kind of scenario in the future. While this may sound like a simple task – it’s not. This will take some time and I do not anticipate launching this week,” he added.
