    Just got my wife to sign up to BBM as skype keeps playing up, but as neither of us have ever used BBM before, we can't find the video call bit? She is on Samsung if that helps? I'm on the passport!

    BBM Video is only between BlackBerry phones. Voice is cross platform though.

    When will BBM video across all platforms be released? Wasn't this promised like over a year ago? If BBM wants to retain any ground over Whatsapp then they need to push this out sooner rather than later

    I do not have the BBM Video icon on my BB Passport or Classic and have the latest OS loaded.

    Both are ATT BB's

    BBM Meetings is a paid and subscription based service, mainly targeted to the business needs. The underlying technology it uses is done by Zoom.

    Zoom has now released their own version for the general consumers, with a free Video meetings/calls that can last up to 40 minutes each.
    Give it a go, it's cross platform service http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ntent/59949934

    I have been comparing a few for video calls.. I am hoping Signal adds video calls to their app as eff.org ranked it one of the most secure

    But soma and VIPole both do encrypted video chat.. Can't decide which looks best tho and eff.org haven't ranked them

    What's with BBM update? Video chat is gone. Kicker is my daughter has older version and she can video call me but I can't video call her. What's going on?

    Video definitely needs to be added for Android and Apple devices for BBM to be competitive. This does not and really shouldn't be free. Offer video as an upsell for BBM on a reasonable subscription basis, say $12 a year. BlackBerry just needs to make enough to cover the costs plus a normal profit and this can be an incremental revenue source.

    It'll be tough to charge folks who have free alternatives.

    "Free" really isn't. I would rather pay a little and do without ads or tracking. Anyone who wouldn't be willing to pay such a tiny amount wouldn't be a beneficial customer anyway. It's no different than any other paid app.

    Except that you're most likely gonna be tracked, if BBM's TOS is anything to go by.

    And even in the premium realm, BBM would struggle to gain traction with other true cross-platform offerings with desktop operability.

    But I would definitely prefer to pay to avoid ads.

    Well I'm sure you know by now that BBM Video is in beta for ios and android only in the US but does not include BB10 in the mix...so you either get her a BB10 phone or you can get a Priv if you want to stick with BlackBerry or an iPhone.

    I'm having problems with BBM. Cannot send out but can receive. Here's a snapshot. I did a factory reset on my phone and still the same.
