Instant Messaging apps for Blackberry OS 10 in 2019 that work

Asked: Mar 24 2019 | 2:37 pm EDT 4164 Views 6 Answers

I've been searching for any app for my Blackberry Passport that would allow me to communicate like whatsapp or Facebook messenger. I can't use BBM because my BB ID is not compatible with it, due to it being registered for BBM Android. I haven't yet tried the whatsapp fix but I was wondering if there was any way I could instant message from my passport to other android/ios devices.

I believe WhatsApp (I don't use), Signal (I don't use) and Telegram (works well for me) all still work reasonably well. Telegram is the only one I use anymore on my Passport. BBM (for me) is history even though I liked it best.

Threema (amazon app store version) is very good. Check all information at threema.ch

You can set up a new ID for BBM on your BB10, although you'll have to factory reset the device before.

You can also use Facebook Messenger Lite on BB10, works fine and gets simple Android notifications (bell icon on Hub): https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/facebo...essenger-lite/

Last I looked, WhatsApp should still be working with WhatsFixer from BBW; for how long, is anyone's guess.

TelegramX (telegram cliant) is best for its reliability.
