Programmatically send a text message to a BBM group/contact?

I have researched the forum but couldn't find the answer for the question:

 

How can I send a text message to a  BBM group/contact from within my application without user intervention (send message on behalf of the user)?

 

Thanks in advace.

Re: Programmatically send a text message to a BBM group/contact?

It is possible to send a message to a group/contact using BBM Social Platform. User intervention is required to accept the invitation to join the connection (supported types: channel, session). You would need to use:

BBMPlatformChannel.sendData API for sending data to a contact.

 

Please refer to the following section of BBM Social Platform development guide for complete steps on how to do this:

Re: Programmatically send a text message to a BBM group/contact?

Hi PoojaMaheshwari,

Thanks for your reply.

 

Did you mean that "User intervention" is the receiver(s)? If so, to send a text message, will there be two step: 1. the app sends an invitation to the contact/group (i.e., receiver(s)); 2. Once the receiver(s) accept the invitation, the app sends him the text message. Am I right?

 

What if I want to send the message to a goup of contacts? Does my app wait for the acception from each contact and act upon...?

 

Thanks,
