ATTN: AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon OS 7 Customers- BlackBerry Wants To Know if You Are Tuned in to BBM Music
BBM Music has been a lot of fun. It’s a social app that allows you to listen to music, share music, grow your music library and more! It all connects through BBM, though your BBM Music friends don’t have to be your BBM Buddies. As of the 22nd, if you have one of the OS 7 handsets, the icon should appear on your BlackBerry. Check it out…
On Inside BlackBerry, BlackBerry has posted the following:
“With the release of BBM™ Music you can now listen to your favorite songs, share music with your BBM friends and even receive recommendations on new music you might be interested in right on your BlackBerry® smartphone1. The best part of all is you can try BBM Music for free2.! The length of the free trial will vary by carrier – so, check with your carrier for details!”
So since the 22nd, if you have service under BIS with any of the carriers listed, you should see a BBM Music icon. If you’re interested, click on it and it will take you to the BlackBerry App World to download. If you are on an Enterprise account (BES), the icon will be missing, and you will have to contact your BlackBerry administrator for assistance and permission. You can read more about it from Inside BlackBerry here.
What are the benefits and features of BBM Music?
