    Check out IMO. It's an android app but it is great for video calls.

    If you want to use BBM they need to have a BB10 device as well. For Skype the platform won't matter, I'm not sure about the other apps.

    Skype works well on BlackBerry for cross platform video messaging. I only know people on this or facetime so BBM isn't an option.

    Swiped on my Passport!

    Does the Duo apk work on a BlackBerry 10 device? I use it on my Priv.

    He's on a Passport. BB10 BBM video is not cross platform.

    BBM Video works only in this configuration:

    BB10 <-> BB10
    Android <-> Android
    iPhone <-> iPhone
    Android <-> iPhone

    I talked my wife and kids into downloading BBM on their iphones. If they so choose they can videocall each other but not me because I have a PP...they had a good laugh.

    Corrected my post, I have used BBM chat across the three platforms, it wasn't video chat. Sorry for any confusion.

    Zoom is not cross platform.
    Had a chat with provider. There is still no way to sync contacts you already have, so you can't call them, or invite them. The only way is through email invitation via link (bb-ios).
    One way is to download the android version and use it that way(like Whatsapp), but you must have the app open and the phone screen all the time to receive a call, or message.
    Right now the only one that works, is Viber(5.6.5.1885) and Skype(5.1.0.58677 with the screen zoomed out), but videocall will make the upper right corner super hot and the video quality is extra dark and badly blurry. Even the iPhone 4S does better job.

    Thanks in advance. LyounMen

    Yep, Zoom not cross platform. Sad. I wish BlackBerry would make good on its promise to make BBM cross platform. I care less about 10.3.3 than that.
