BBM Global News for Android and iOS Users

BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) has added more goodies to the already most powerful communication system. BBM Global News is now available for Android and iOS users.


Go to your BBM Discover page and you should see the news tab at the top. If you don’t see it at first, you may have  reset your phone and or close your BBM and re-open it. You will get BBM news under the following headings:

  • News
  • Technology
  • Business
  • Sports
  • Entertainment
  • Autos
  • Health

Also available is a search option that allows you to search for the specific news you are looking for. With the share button, you can send the article to a friend or colleague on BBM.

As time passes, we see that BBM is becoming more powerful and robust all around. Here are a few articles that we have posted to share in the growth and development of BBM.

Edit : BBM News is also available for iOS devices with the latest update.

    Nice like apple news on iphones and ipads

    • Except it’s not a separate app. It’s an integrated service within BBM.

      And it’s there on iOS BBM too.

        Thats what i like that its seperate vs a bloated app with everything in it

      • James h Jackson jr

        More people would use channels and news if they were seperate apps i feel. I mean we use em but i want to see more use em and i feel a seperate apps under bbm banner is whats needed bbm global news app bbm channels app etc etc
