Recently, Black Berry also will be introducing sponsored content in BBM Channels.
The bug may trace back to Apple's new Universal Links feature introduced with i OS 9 back in September.
Universal Links was designed to allow developers to connect URLs with specific mobile apps, letting users tap a link to a website and have it open in the site's mobile app instead.
Jeff Gadway, head of product and brand marketing for BBM, described the three ways Black Berry would be promoting sponsored content on BBM Channels - featured placements, sponsored invites, and sponsored posts.
In February, Black Berry announced that it would make its messaging service BBM available to Microsoft's Windows Phone.
Black Berry has begun rolling out an update to its popular cross-platform messaging service, BBM or Black Berry Messenger, for Android, bringing minor enhancements and fixes to the app.
Black Berry announced the update via its official Twitter handle, saying, "#BBM for #Android update rolling out today to address emoticons in status updates, web links and more."The new BBM update for Android brings fixes to enable sharing of emoticons in status updates; enhanced response time when opening BBM chats and group screen, and for BBM voice calls, the update includes battery life optimisations.
