BlackBerry had only released BBM for Android in Google’s Play Store. Today, BlackBerry also officially added the BBM for Android download to the Amazon app store.

“All you Android BBMers out there: the latest BBM for Android is now available on the Amazon Appstore. The Amazon Appstore is both a website and accompanying app that connects Android users to all the great movies, games, and apps on Amazon.

“As part of the monetization plan for BBM, we’re growing our user base with a cross-platform strategy, expanding BBM beyond the BlackBerry operating system and bringing Android, iOS, and Windows Phone users into (and back to) the fold.”

Android users can get their BBM updates through Google Play or the Amazon Appstore.
