BlackBerry announces BBM for Android Wear smartwatches


The BBM team is in Las Vegas and they’re showing off support for discreet messaging from your wrist – A new feature that will soon be available for a wide range of Android Wear smartwatches.

With BBM for Android Wear, the team has taken some of the most common BBM activities out of your pocket and onto your wrist. If you often hear the BBM notification when your hands are full you’re going to love this.

Without touching your phone you can:

  • See who a new message is from and read it – while loading grocery bags into the back of your car;
  • Review and accept invites from would-be BBM contacts while on the go;
  • Flip through several messages to find that one with the address you’re looking for – while carrying a coffee;
  • Pick from a list of pre-defined messages to quickly send a response – while in a meeting (or class 😉 );
  • Use your voice and Google Now to respond to messages hands-free.

BBM for Android Wear is only a first step to support cross-platform wearable technology. And it will be available soon.
