After many BlackBerry users in the UK were disappointed to find that BBM Music v1.1 would not be available to them, many (okay, all) will be happy to know that with the v1.2 upgrade, BBM Music will add availability to Beta Zone members in the UK. Another perk of this update would be that the BBM Music has gotten a face lift! These are the features you'll find in the updated beta app:
- Invitation requests - view songs and friends in common before accepting or declining a request
- "Favorite" songs and contacts - let everyone know which songs and people you enjoy most
- Intelligent shuffle - shuffle songs based on songs, genre, artist, song popularity, album, contact, release year or recently added
- Default friend - new users will have a default friend listed under their contacts
- Applications enhancements - current users will notice notification, start up performance, and accessing account information improvement
For now v1.2 is only an eligible program in Beta Zone (only for US, Canada, and UK users), but the fact that the beta app is now capable of use in the UK is a good sign that the official version following this one will inevitably bring many new UK users to the BBM Music world. If you're itching to try this beta app, just remember that you have to currently have a BBM Music subscription to actually use the app, if you don't, sign up today
! With a pretty new look and the addition of my fellow BlackBerry users across the Atlantic, BBM Music gets even better as the days go on.
