If you have installed the 10.3.0.296 leak, you may find the action bar blocking your text typing box in regular BBM Chat and hiding it from view. To get around this, you can swipe down from the top in BBM and choose settings and turn off Show Action Bar With Keyboard. The text box works ok in Group Chat.
It's a big day for BBM because not only did BlackBerry introduce the eBBM Suite , introducing BBM Protected, for enterprise customers but they've also updated BBM for both BlackBerry 10 and Legacy BBOS.

The updated version brings BBM for BlackBerry 10 to v10.3.33.18 and you can get your update by checking your My World section of BlackBerry World and see if there is an update available. If you don't see it, you can search for BBM and the update button should appear in the upper right corner.
