In a blog post from their official site, Blackberry has revealed a material update for BBM on Android. For now, its only limited to beta testers in Blackberry Beta Zone. The app was redesigned from scratch following Google guidelines, so it now bears a new look and feel.

Asides the new Material looks there are other additions:

  • Private Chats: Here, contact names are hidden, new message notifications are turned off, chats are deleted automatically after a short time, or when the chat is ended.
  • The ability to edit a sent message.
  • Sharing status updates right from the BBM feed.
