BlackBerry denies June 27 date for Messenger on iOS, Android

T-Mobile UK leaks potential date

The iOS and Android versions of BlackBerry Messenger will launch on June 27, according to a now-deleted tweet by T-Mobile UK. BlackBerry recently announced that the apps would arrive this summer, but without a specific date. The company is in fact claiming that T-Mobile UK's date is inaccurate, although it hasn't provided a different one.

Messenger has long been a selling point of BlackBerry's phones. The company has stated that initially, the iOS and Android editions will carry only the basic features of their originator, such as chat, filesharing, and voice notes. Other components, such as channels and screen share, will have to wait for a future version.
