Video: BBM vs WhatsApp
Last updated: January 24, 2019
BBM is the best way to connect and share instant messages, pictures and more for free, in real time. BlackBerry offers a family of products that brings together the core strengths of BBM with features and capabilities aimed at enterprises. The new eBBM Suite works with BlackBerry smartphones and the BlackBerry enterprise solution.
WhatsApp Messenger is a cross-platform mobile messaging app which allows you to exchange messages without having to pay for SMS. WhatsApp Messenger is available for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, Windows Phone and Nokia and yes, those phones can all message each other! Because WhatsApp Messenger uses the same internet data plan that you use for email and web browsing, there is no cost to message and stay in touch with your friends. Secure WhatsApp alternatives are Signal and Telegram.

2015 - WhatsApp launches web browser version to keep up competition with BBM
The popular international mobile messaging app WhatsApp has unveiled a web browser-based version of its service. For now the web application is only compatible with WhatsApp user accounts from Android, Windows and weirdly enough, Blackberry. For now iPhone owners won’t have access to WhatsApp’s desktop client. Furthermore, WhatsApp’s desktop web browser version only works on Google Chrome. Fortunately for the company, the app’s audience is largely international, and Android dominates the international market by far.
