BlackBerry has just rolled out an update for the Beta Zone BBM version. The beta version is chock full of new features and bug fixes. It also has some issues as it is a beta version but that is to be expected. The beta version may show up as v10.5.2.7, v10.5.3.7 or v10.5.4.7 as it depends on what device you are using.
- Improved Sticker Picker
- Auto transfer of HQ photos
- Rate BBM
Like we mentioned, it is still a beta so there are a few issues.
- User should not bet allowed to play a video while doing screen share through a video call
- Heavy lag experienced after user send/receive few stickers and copied the chat in the message typing area to compose a full length message
- "Rate App Prompt" now appears every time after the user reopens BBM after selecting "Remind me later" on first showing
- Inserting some smileys after a word that with a # inserts only the smiley short code
- Voice call with a BBOS user is being disconnected after a while
- In the dark background, characters in the display name field are not seen properly by the user when an error occurs.
A word of caution to you if you plan on installing the BBM beta. All of you chats will be lost! So if you want to install the beta, open the Beta Zone app on your BlackBerry 10 device and look for the new version and select install.
