Today at Mobile World Conference, Nokia announced somethings we don’t cover here on WINDOWS PHONE Connect unfortunately, but along with that side announcement we are pleased to report that Nokia didn’t forget about their loyal and faithful Windows Phone users! Below are just some of the apps expected to be coming soon to Windows Phone devices everywhere! Take a look below:
BBM For Windows Phone

- See when contacts are responding to your message
- Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself
BBM lets you protect your privacy. You control it:
- You chose how to share your information – BBM uses PINs instead of phone numbers or email addresses so that it’s more private, and you always control who can contact you
- You chose your contacts – 2-way opt-in means you have control over who is able to message you
Chat and Share with many at once:
- Groups – BBM groups help you share pictures, lists, and appointments with group members. You can even be in a group with people who aren’t part of your own BBM contact list.
- Multi-person chats – Invite multiple contacts to have a chat together.
- Broadcast messages – Send a message to multiple BBM contacts at one time.
BBM Channels: Join conversations happening now about the things you love.*
- Create a new channel to share your thoughts, ideas and passions.
- Subscribe to an existing BBM channel to join chats with others who share your interests.
Create your own BBM profile:
- Post a profile picture using images, pictures or even animated pictures (GIFs).
- Update your status to let people know what you’re up to or how you feel
In a recent press release John Sims, President, Global Enterprise Solutions at BlackBerry said,
“BBM continues to grow in popularity as millions of people use our mobile platform for chatting and connecting with friends or colleagues, and we are very excited that we will soon welcome Windows Phone and Nokia X users to the BBM community,”
BBM will be available as a free download for Windows Phone users this summer.
