BlackBerry South Africa previously said that BBM for Android will soon be available for Samsung customers in Africa, but the launch date remains unknown.
The launch of BBM for Android and iPhone was scheduled for 21 September and 22 September respectively.
However, the launch was delayed after an unreleased version of the BBM for Android app was posted online, which has caused issues.
In a recent Twitter post BlackBerry said that it is “Still 100% committed to bringing #BBM to Android and iPhone”.
BlackBerry urged users to follow the BBM Twitter account and the Inside BlackBerry blog for updates.
