  • What's New In The Latest BBM Beta?



    As we reported yesterday, there is a shiny new version of BBM in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. For those that are salivating over any new feature that's coming you BBM you'd better read on.

    Speed
    The main improvement mentioned on the update is that BBM has a number of performance improvements. After having played with BBM for a few hours I can't say that I've seen a huge difference in performance. The blue "app loading" circle still appears if you keep BBM in an active frame for a while. Stickers are still taking a little while to load up initially. What is probably improved is the loading time for the BBM smileys.

    Whenever we tried to add a smiley to a new BBM chat, there would be a noticeable pause before it would start drawing the smileys. That seems to be much smoother now making chatting that but more friendly.

    BBM Channels
    BBM Channels has been given a minor facelift. The navigation tabs at the top of the panels pane now has words instead of icons. This is probably to make it easier for new users; without know what the icons represent they can appear a little cryptic.

    Photos in Groups
    Probably the biggest (yes, I saved the best until last) change is the added feature of being able to add a photo within a group chat now.


    The photo will still appear in the Pictures pane of the groups for commenting - but now you can see it in context of the conversation. A huge improvement.

    Have you spotted any other new features that BlackBerry are being coy about? Let us know in the comments!
