Some of you may have noticed that after upgrading to BBM 6 the "Show What I'm Listening to" option is no longer in the My Profile section. While many have wondered and just written it off as another feature that annoyed certain people that RIM decided to do away with, we'd like to let you guys know it's actually part of another plan RIM is developing. We've received reports that within the next couple of days, the BlackBerry Beta Zone will be introducing a whole new app for everyone that's a member to test out.

BlackBerry Cloud Music

BlackBerr Cloud Music, or BBCM as it's being called, will be a completely independent app that will integrate to BBM and work alongside the BlackBerry Media Player to exhance our music enjoyment. What do we know about BBCM as of now?
  • BBCM will allow users to share songs and playlists across BBM.
  • BBCM will first be able in the Beta Zone as soon as this week.
  • RIM will be attempting to set up a music library through BlackBerry Cloud Music.
  • Full integration with BBM which will allow users to post up what they're listening to as a status.
  • BBCM will come pre-installed on all new devices.
  • A paid subscription of $4.99/month will be required to access BBCM.

Hopefully this shines some light on what everyone's been wondering. As soon as this puppy drops in the BlackBerry Beta Zone will have even more details and screenshots for everyone to check out.
