    Has anyone been successful in using it yet? I'm using Passport and others have tried but only get a voice call. No video.

    There is NO BB10 to android/iOS video calling. At least, not yet and no one even knows if there will be. Just have to wait and see.

    As I understand it, the new BBM video feature that is in beta for both Android and iOS are running on a separate server in order to work out the bugs before it is merged with the main server (where BB10 video is) so the whole system isn't brought down due to a major bug.

    Yes, that is correct. But it is in Beta for North America only right now.

    "The new video calling feature will work on Android OS 4.4 (KitKat) and higher, as well as iOS 8 and higher. Users who install the new update will be able to use the new video calling feature by selecting a contact and tapping the option to "try a Beta Video Call." If the contact does not have the new beta video calling feature enabled, then BBM will default to the standard voice call option."

    Just came across this. Thanks

    So this would indicate that from July and onward, it will be true crossplatform BBM Video? Well, except for Windows Phone then.

    That is, indeed, the expectation, but who knows for sure after all this is BB we are talking about

    Fingers crossed then! If that were to be true, I would really wish Windows Phone be included too... but they haven't released an BBM update for Windows Phone in a long while..

    Can someone confirm this information?
    As far as I know it is cross platform BBM Video between iOS and Android only, and BB10 is not part of it.

    as i already said in another thread. Android <--> Android still works, BBRY <--> Android starts and then switches to Voice only.

    I just did an android to iOS video call. Extremely diasappointed. I mean if BBM cross platform video is like this why bother. Spend resources on other things. The video call u just had would give any system a bad name.

    I've done this with my work iphone and wife's android and it seemed pretty good.

    Still waiting on BB10 to be included in cross platform but am not holding my breath lol.
