BlackBerry today released BBM Channels in beta phase for users on BB OS 5 and above through BlackBerry World. The company is rolling out the Channel service in the new version of BBM, which will become available for download later today. To remind you, BBM Channel is a community based forum for active, real conversations between people, brands and communities where a channel owner can post messages, share pictures and post animated GIFs, start discussions, chat directly with subscribers, and also integrate live chat to schedule chat hours for one on one chat sessions. One will be able to join or opt out of a channel as per their wish, and also allow other users to join one’s own channel. And for Android and IOS users, don’t get sad as the company will be rolling out this update in the coming months.
