Quote from T.A. McCann, Vice President of BBM and Social Communities at BlackBerry:

“Our customers around the world have embraced BBM version 7, which has brought BBM to a whole new level, further strengthening the experience of reliable, fast, real-time engagement. By bringing BBM version 7 with BBM Voice to customers running BlackBerry 5 OS smartphones, we really broaden the base of people who can connect with each other, especially in many of our emerging markets where BBM is the leading player.”

Head on over to BlackBerry World to see if the update is showing on your end.
