    Droid/Blackberry chat rooms

    Is there any chat app that will let people using droid's and blackberry's chat with each other in a private chat room. I have 3 daughters and all had blackberrys and they used a app called Blackberry messenger. Two of my daughters are upgrading to Droids this week and the other staying with blackberry until the next upgrade and they still want to private chat. Anything?

    GTalk comes to mind. The BB user will have to install it, but droids come with.

    Yahoo Messenger is available on Blackberry and Android. I've never used Blackberry Messenger, but from what I've heard Yahoo Messenger would be fairly similar and would work on both

    I have never used the blackberry messenger app, as I have a D2. As I understand it they can chat using instant messenger or have a private chat room which is invite only. It's quicker than a text message and you can see when the message has been delivered and read.

    GTalk does almost everything that BBM does. It's two limitations are 1.) No location sharing and 2.) No transfer of pictures.

    I suspect google is working on correcting those two. GTalk does let you create group chats and it is instantaneous just like bbm.

    My mistake, it's a "under development" feature.

    Open a chat with one contact and then hit the menu button and choose "add to chat" then you can invite people from your contact list.

    That's why I didn't see it. It was "under development", now listed in features (you can dig for the URL for gtalk).

    You have to first "send" a message to one person in order to add another person to the chat.

    Sick and tired of my BB Storm2. Daily battery pulls. I ordered the Android X2 today from Verizon. I'm really nervous about email and calendar stuff. I use Outlook at work and it always worked great with BB and the relay software. Am I going to have problems since we do not use an Enterprise Server?
