Google working on BBM type app for Android

Some reports are suggesting that Google is already working on a BlackBerry messenger and iMessage type app for its Android operating system.

Google is working on a application similar to that of the BlackBerry Messenger(BBM) offered by Research In Motion, according to the Wall Street Journal.
“Google Inc, whose software is the most popular operating system on smartphones, has also recently worked on a messaging application,” the report said.

Recently Apple has also come out with iMessage service, which is almost identical to the BBM.

BBM has been one of the cornerstones behind RIM’s success, the producers of Blackberry phones.

No other details were given in the report. Google currently relies on third party messaging apps like Whatsapp, Liveprofile and Kik. The objective is to keep users on a specific mobile OS and keep them loyal to the brand.

RIM currently has over 55 million BBM users and Apple, when 5 is officially released in the fall, will have millions of users too.
