Research In Motion officially released the latest version of its BlackBerry Messenger mobile social networking service, adding new voice calling capabilities as well as expanded notifications and synchronization features.

BBM 7 first went to beta back on the 14th of November last month, with beta testers saying things like “the voice feature is easy to use and the audio quality is excellent”, with the full version now out and presumably featuring sounding even better than during the beta process.

RIM said Monday that the new BlackBerry Messenger 7, issued in beta in mid-November, will be available for download from its BlackBerry World storefront within the next 24 hours. Optimized for devices running BlackBerry 6 and higher, with support expanding to BlackBerry 5 early next year, BBM 7 enables consumers to make free voice calls to other BBM users across the globe over a Wi-Fi connection. A split-screen feature allows toggling between messaging and voice options–users may also talk and text at the same time, enhancing business collaboration possibilities.

BBM Voice is included in BBM 7 (version and is now available, or will be within 24-hours, in the BlackBerry App World. Next on the BBM agenda is BBM Video Chat – this will be included in the big BlackBerry 10 launch. In the meantime, RIM made a demo of BBM Voice in action, check it out below.
