Along with this announcement comes several new features that are sure to make BBM users on iOS and Android quite happy. Heading up the list of new features is BBM Voice, a free calling feature that lets users voice chat instead of using cellular voice service. BBM also now features chat room with a handful of channels that vary based on interest, hobbies, and consumer brands.
