Utilising a Wi-Fi connection you will be able to call your BBM mates and chat for free as well as the normal text chatting too.
The latest update has added some other features too including more emoticons and multitasking which allows you to use BBM to chat whilst using other apps on your BlackBerry. A number of other additions have been included such as BB ID syncing and direct update notification but the voice calls is the most notable amongst them.
The feature is compatible with Bluetooth headsets too so you can go handsfree should you need too, very handy. The update is available to users with phones running BlackBerry 6 OS or above with plans for a BlackBerry 5 update next year. The latest update is available to download from BlackBerry AppWorld.
