BBM7 came out of beta today and although it brings a few new things to the BlackBerry table, such as some new emoticons it is BBM Voice Chat that is the real big feature.
Voice Chat works over WiFi and allows you to talk to your BBM buddies wherever they are in the world at no charge. I’ve been using it for some weeks now and it works like a dream.
Whist on a voice chat you are still free to do other tasks on your BlackBerry due to multitasking. Where it comes in handy though is you can seamlessly send text and picture messages to the contact while still on the voice call.
It isn’t quite Skype but it the next best thing if you ask me. Another fine feature from RIM keeping us BlackBerry addicts happy.
