BBM Vs. WhatsApp, Which One Is Better

It is often long that everyone was eagerly awaited for the BBM. Now it is finally available for Android os and iOS or i phone users. Even though there are numerous messaging services available but it appears that BBM has a strong competition against WhatsApp. Then i want to compare these two and find out which is better. GBWhatsapp

BBM for personal privacy

If perhaps you are aiming at something that is more private then BBM is the right choice for you. As you opt for this service, you’ll certainly be by using a unique PIN by which you can get in touch with your contacts. This kind of means that unless a buddy has accepted your demand you will not be able to contact through BBM. 

If you see it different then it seems a hassle as when you use WhatsApp you are easily holding all on your phonebook. It is as simple as sending a meaning to another user.

Get in touch with grid

BBM seems to have an improved contact main grid as compared to WhatsApp. Here you have a few chosen people to contact. However, with WhatsApp you may have all on your contact grid. The common factor with the talk messengers appears to be adding your close friends and family. You can create a list on your BBM or create Favorites in your WhatsApp.

Message Delivery

We have a distinct way these two programs behave when it comes to concept delivery notification or notifications regarding it.

WhatsApp notifications you when an customer is on the web and their last seen time. With BBM, you are not equipped such information but you will still know when another is available or busy according to their current status.

For many who like online and last seen they can opt for WhatsApp, as the information is often accurate.

BBM may differ in the approach towards message delivery; you will get an R for read receipt and M for delivery status. WhatsApp gives you single tick for message sent and double for delivery.

Intended for WhatsApp users they will only know if their message was read in accordance to last login time or last seen time of another user.

BBM offers you with an option of PING just like poke on Facebook or myspace this feature makes it possible to nudge another user.


The emoticon preference differs in both the messaging services but it boils down to your individual choice.

WhatsApp gives you smiley, pets, images and other emoticons to express yourself. Whilst BBM has limited amount of selective emoticons.

This kind of might be more down to personal emoticon desire than anything else, but we have to say we choose to options you get on WhatsApp as opposed to BBM.

Chat Space

The chat space provided by WhatsApp is much more when compared with what is provided by BBM. The conversation bubbles in the chat are bigger.

In the event you are by using a Blackberry mobile phones handset then you can change the text size or else you will need to live program it. The privilege of adding more conversation text messages has to BlackBerry users.

Common factors

After contrasting both together, there are a few features that are common in both the message services.

– Creating and updating talk status that serves as an alert message to other users about your current mood.

– You can create groups in both the chat services but there are more attachment options available with WhatsApp. It will be easy to send images, video files, audio tracks notes and media data. However, with BBM you merely have the option of audio, video and image files.


If you are by using a BlackBerry handset then you have full functionality enabled in BBM. Things like video, words and screen share are yet to be released in BBM chat for non-BlackBerry users. At present, this software is compatible with all platforms in the same way WhatsApp.

BBM helps you contact iPhone and Android users. However, it seems that WhatsApp chat is also available to all you including iPhone, Android and BlackBerry users. Both the software are appropriate and work on cross-platform. It seems that in the end it all depends after personal choice of an user which iphone app they wish to choose.
