BBM update rolling out via Blackberry world includes new features

By | August 13, 2014


Couple of days back BBM has got the update for iOS and now the update started rolling out via Blackberry world for their native users with quite new features and bug fixes.

For few people, it is not going to be a new update as it it shows this version might have appear with 10.2.2 if you installed that. However, most of the users should be seeing v10.3.43.9 offered you are running 10.2.1 version of BB OS and not some other leaked or developer preview.

In simple words, if you are running the stock Blackberry OS on your device, will be able to get the update but if you have already installed any leaked or developer firmware, this update is not for you.

See the full BBM update changelog:

  • Find friends using BBM
  • Add new contacts to BBM by PIN, email, SMS, and barcode
  • Display your barcode and scan barcodes all in one screen
  • Invite address book contacts to download BBM
  • Review and accept invites from other BBM users
  • Bug fixes and improvements

With this update, the main highlighted feature its new way to add new contacts to your BBM list other than the security updates, where you can choose PIN, Email, Barcode, SMS and even invite people from your address book to download BBM(Check-out the full changelog). On top of that, there is also added support for BBM secured and the usual ‘bug fixes and improvements‘.

What, your friends don’t use BBM? Tell them to update the messenger it right now. You know it makes sense.
