    New BlackBerry Messenger 5.0.1.5 now in beta testing



    Seems some lucky beta testers at the BB Beta Zone have got a chance to test drive the new BBM. Unfortunately there seems to be little to no chance of it leaking anytime soon due to the insanely long activation code that is required. But don't fear, there aren't many enhancements in this new version. Most testers that are giving out info have stated that is mostly consists of under the hood fixes. There are a few notable new features though:

    • View contacts as 1 or 2 line
    • Improved SMS integration
    • Option to automatically record when sending Voice Notes


    Not really anything to write home about, huh? But even so it shows that RIM is still trying to improve an already great BBM app. I have seen some reports through Twitter today that the app feels "snapier" as well. Hopefully the behind the scene fixes that they are implementing will continue to speed things up.

    Same here.
    One plus is that the keyboard seems to work properly now in group chats. it didn't pop up before on the 607 OS.
    Otherwise, a couple of additional options and that's about it. I was expecting a lot more.

    I really wish they would give us more emoticons or a better way to save them so they show up with the rest.

    This version of BBM is in private beta testing and will not be shared with anyone outside of the private beta test group.
