    WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 29, 2013) - After the amazing launch of BBM™ on Android and iPhone devices, with more than 10 million downloads in the first 24 hours, BBM has now ended its first week with more than 80 million monthly active users*, including over 20 million new users on Android and iPhone devices.

    The power of BBM has always been the active, real conversations and interaction that our customers enjoy," said Andrew Bocking, Executive Vice President of BBM at BlackBerry. "From here on out, we will focus on active users of BBM and will no longer focus on simple download numbers."

    With the BBM community now at more than 80 million active users around the globe

    Yes! This is great news. People were wondering how many were actually using the app vs dl, and there you have it.

    Probably just the 20 million people who left BB in the last few years who are downloading it

    I downloaded BBM for my Android phone, then I realized I don't know anyone who uses BBM anymore, so I deleted it.
