BlackBerry Messenger: When it comes to the new Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry operating system, there is a lot that you need to learn. While you can do so on your own time, most people agree that the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) feature is something you want to pick up on sooner rather than later.
As noted in this official blog post by Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry, “the most significant BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) innovation on BlackBerry 10 is the Video Chat feature.”

The overall gist of BBM Video is pretty simple to understand. With this advanced technology, you are in position to communicate with others via a video chat agent. In other words, you can hold a face to face conversation without actually being face to face.
As you get involved with BBM Video, Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry urges you to keep the following points in mind. These will ensure a better overall user experience:
“Seamless transition between text and video. It’s extremely easy to initiate a video chat with a BBM contact. When in a text-based BBM conversation, simply tap the video icon on the chat screen to start talking face-to-face. BAM!
Screen Share. In addition to being able to make audio and video calls through BBM, you can share the screen of your BlackBerry 10 device while continuing your conversation. This allows you to chat in real time about a photo album, business document or website.
High quality audio. BBM Video has stereo and wide-band audio technology. This means that two people can talk at the same time without canceling each other out.
Cinematic experience. You can rotate your BlackBerry 10 device while BBM video chatting. This way, you can share you surrounding in portrait or landscape mode when conversing with a contact face-to-face over BBM.
Front or rear-facing cameras. When in BBM Video, you switch between the front or rear-facing cameras on your BlackBerry 10 device. Which lens is more slimming (ha!) – you pick!”
As you review these features, you will begin to realize that BBM Video is simple to understand and easy to use.
This is just one of the many features of the new Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY) BlackBerry operating system that the company is hoping will propel it back into the spotlight.
The competition in the smartphone industry is hotter than ever before, and BlackBerry is definitely playing catch up. It is features like these that may allow the company to once again become a dominant player.
