A new update to Blackberry Messenger is being pushed out from today to Blackberry 10, Android and iPhone users. The new update adds the following features:
Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find in this latest release of BBM:
- Timed Messages: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat
- Message Retraction: ‘Retract’ a message to remove it from your BBM chat
- A quicker sticker picker: Adding stickers to your BBM chats is now even quicker with a new picker
- HD Picture Transfer: It’s easier than ever to get a high quality version of the pictures you receive in BBM
- Discover Music: See what music your contacts are listening to in BBM Feeds.
Unfortunately, I can confirm that these new features are not yet available for Windows smartphone BBM users.
In the meantime, I have done a test of the new features and find that they work. Do share below your thoughts and experience with them in the comments section after you have updated your app.
