When playing music on the Android device, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Windows Phone device, BBM contacts do not receive an update of which song is playing.

The Music Status Updates feature provides the ability to control whether or not music status updates from BBM contacts are displayed on the Updates tab in BBM, however, the ability to send out music status updates to BBM contacts from the Android device, iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Windows Phone device is not currently a feature of BBM.
