  • Introducing BBM Stickers: CosCat, Gilbert’s Tales, Bubble Bot and More



    Ever since BBM became its own entity within the BlackBerry enterprise, and even at the last earnings call, the question has been: How is BBM going to make money? Starting today, we will begin to see how that strategy will play along with the introduction of a limited Beta for BBM with Stickers, a new addition to the latest release that already is shaping up to be the next-gen immediate messaging platform to beat.

    The cross-platform BBM is maturing quickly as its Android and iOS counterparts are getting built up with more features including the recent addition of Glympse to share realtime location to your chats, as well as a streamlined sharing workflow.

    As per Inside BlackBerry's blog, BBM with stickers will be the next big update to come to the platform and will comprise of sticker packs revolving around a theme or character sold as an in-app purchase. Each pack will have 20-25 stickers introducing CosCat, Gilbert's Tales, Bubble Bot and more. And now my curiosity is piqued.

    Even though I don't see myself using stickers, it is definitely a step in the right direction to compete against other popular cross-platform messaging platforms like Line and WeChat.

    What do you say? Are you excited about these cute critters?
