Many would have thought it to be obvious, but today at Research In Motion’s Annual General Meeting, CEO Thorsten Heins confirmed what many have been hoping. BlackBerry Messenger will utilize the Video Chat feature. We caught an earlier glimpse of this in BlackBerry 10 demo video showing the Video Chat feature available while in call with another BlackBerry user or while viewing their contact information.

It will be really interesting to see how the video chat feature works. Perhaps RIM will allow for multiple video chats to occur while in a group? If you’re an owner of the PlayBook, you’ve likely already witnessed how the Video Chat feature will work. How cool will it be to see your BBM friend is online and can engage in a Video Chat conversation?!
