ICQ support returns on Nimbuzz

February 9th, 2011

Yes!  ICQ is back on Nimbuzz :D .

Though last year we had to pull the plug on ICQ, it didn’t stop us from looking into ways of collaboration.

After further discussions ICQ agreed to let us continue to offer support.  This time we get to offer you an even better experience and access to the full ICQ API.  This is especially handy for Nokia Symbian and Blackberry users for which ICQ does not provide a mobile version.

We know for sure our friends from Russia and Germany will be really happy to have ICQ back again!

Thank you all for sticking with Nimbuzz even when we couldn’t offer ICQ and thanks for your support via blog posts, comments and Twitter.

Please tweet the post and spread the good news to all your friends :D !

We are launching this feature with Telkomsel in Indonesia, with more operators in India coming soon. If you would like to be notified when Nimbuzz Ping will be available with your operator sign-up here.

Our friends from GigaOm and Into Mobile stated it is a “smart move on the part of Nimbuzz“, and they “could easily see this flying“.
