When it comes to Android, BlackBerry has the PRIV, and it also has BBM. The messaging app received an update last month that added support for Marshmallow permissions and removed privacy features from behind a paywall. Now users in the US and Canada have the option to start streaming video.

BBM Video is currently only in beta, but it's an open one. There's no sign-up required.

To use the feature, tap the video icon to initiate a call. The app will ask if you want to make a voice call or try out video, as long as your contact is on a supported platform. BBM Video isn't ready for iOS yet, but it's coming soon.


BlackBerry plans to launch the feature globally in July.
