BBM Voice Chat with non Blackberry Devices

I am running the latest BBM on my Bold 9900 with fully updated O/S.

I noticed that since BBM for Android and Apple launched, I cannot get voice chat capabilities for my non-blackberry device contacts.

I am connected to wifi. When my blackberry contacts are in wifi areas, I see the green notification lit up in the top right of their profiles but all my non-blackberry device contacts are always greyed out.

I was just wondering if they have that capability yet and if so, why might I be getting this issue?

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to reply.

Regards,
Dan

Re: BBM Voice Chat with non Blackberry Devices

Hello DrFever.

I don't work for Blackberry, but I do know that BBM for Android and iOS offer limited functionality compared to the Blackberry Version. They only have chat capabilities, with video and voice expected sometime next year. I hope that this helps!
