While BlackBerry may have finally gone cross-platform with BBM, the iOS and Android releases were missing some of the big features such as voice and channels. Both will be arriving at some point in the future, and BlackBerry has put together a short video clip showing them off for the first time. Without saying anything about when the features will be coming.

BBM Voice is actually a pretty reliable, and good quality VoIP service, but it faces stiff competition on the iPhone from the likes of FaceTime Audio, without even considering the ample third-party offerings already available. BBM Channels is actually an interesting prospect, and personally the feature I'm most looking forward to seeing on BBM for iOS.

So, take a look at the video up top, and drop your thoughts into the comments below. An excited BBM user already or perhaps this makes you want to switch?
