• A New BBM Build Hits The Beta Zone

    Heads up to you Beta Zone members participating in the BBM Beta program. A new build for the BBM Beta has hit the Zone. The new build contains some cool new features so if you haven't updated yet, head on over to the Beta Zone app on your phone and get to it.

    If you're not a member but you want to participate, click on the Beta Zone link and sign up now.

    The new BBM Beta Zone update includes:

    • Private Chat
    • Edit Message
    • Timed Messages and Pictures
    • Retract

    Private Chat: make sure your sensitive messages are kept confidential. In a private chat, all contact information is hidden, and new message notifications are discreet. Your chat is automatically deleted on both ends when the chat is inactive or closed. To start a private chat, open the menu from within a 1:1 chat and select “Start Private Chat”.

    Private chat is included in the new Privacy and Control Subscription, which bundles several powerful features into one convenient subscription.

    All existing Timed and Retracted Messages Subscribers will be upgraded to the new Privacy and Control Subscription at no additional cost.

    Ability to Order Sticker Packs: now you have the ability to customize which Sticker Packs you see in your main Sticker Picker view using the Stickers Settings Menu.

    Quote Message: reference and reply to a previous message in your chat. To quote a message, tap and hold on it and select “Quote Message”.‎

    Let us know if you're participating in the Beta and what you think of the new build and features.
