Research In Motion today announced the availability of BlackBerry Messenger 7. It is the first version of BBM to come with BBM Voice, a feature which lets BBM users make free voice calls over Wi-Fi from within the app to their BBM contacts. BBM Voice comes with a number of features:

  • The ability to switch from BBM text chat to talk and back
  • Split-screen supports talk and text at same time
  • Visual indicator to indicate when contacts are available for voice calls
  • Compatibility with various accessories including Bluetooth or wired headsets

Aside from BBM Voice, BBM 7 comes with new BBM upgrade notifications to notify you of new updates, an integrated BBM ID that makes it easier to switch devices, and 16 new emoticons.

BBM 7 is now available in BlackBerry App World for devices running BlackBerry 6 OS and higher. RIM also plans to release a version support the older BlackBerry 5 operating system sometime “early next year.”
