Seems like the last few days have been nothing but all about BBM news, and once again we have some more major BBM news for you today. The Inside BlackBerry Blog has just released a list of features that will be coming to BBM in 2014! The list is rattles off some much needed features to take the messaging app to the next level. Not only for BlackBerry, but for iOS and Android as well.
Sean Hungerford gives us the rundown. Let's see what's coming!
1. BBM Voice for iPhone and Android
2. BBM Channels for iPhone and Android
3. Faster and easier sharing – from photos to voice notes, your location and more
BBM chats happen fast – so fast it’s like you’re there in the same room. Now you can share just about anything with that same speed. Share photos in a snap, send a voice note with just one touch and more. And get this, you can even share your location, live, for a limited time with any contact you choose. When the timer runs out your location is private again. Perfect for when you’re meeting up with friends, stuck in traffic or lost at a concert. (Not that that’s ever happened to me ☺.)
4. Lots of new emoticons
Speaking of emoticons, ask and ye shall receive. We’ve got loads of new emoticons to help you make your point. 100 new emoticons in all! This includes a bunch that came from you, our fans. We can’t wait for you to meet all our new emoticons from ROTFL, Epic Fail, Face palm, a serious hug and yes, even a smiley-poo.
We’re beta testing these features now for release on Android, iPhone and BlackBerry 10 in the next couple months so stay sharp, they’ll be here before you know it. For a closer look at these features in action check out this video:
