Nimbuzz is coming to Windows Phone devices after the instant messaging app developer spoke directly with Nokia.

The application - which enables its 105 million users to communicate with each other free via text message, group messaging, picture sharing and across multiple social networks and instant messaging services - is already a hit seller on Nokia’s traditional Symbian operating system. 

However, with the Finnish manufacturer embracing Windows Phone – expect at least two Windows Phone 8 devices to be unveiled at Nokia World on 5 September – Nimbuzz is now available on all Nokia Lumia devices as well as other Windows Phone 7 devices.

“With more than 105 million users worldwide, Nimbuzz Messenger is one of the ‘must-have’ applications for Symbian smartphone users, and as part of our ongoing collaboration with Nokia’s, we are excited to bring the service to Nokia Lumia and Windows Phone smartphones,” said Joby Babu, Nimbuzz head of operations.   

“We’re confident Nimbuzz Messenger will provide one of the best free messaging services available in Marketplace.”

Nimbuzz is available now for free from the Windows Marketplace.
