Last updated:

BlackBerry have released another upgrade to the the beta of BBM for iOS, bringing the latest beta version to v2.7.0.359

The update brings new features including  vanity PIN’s, removable ads and a new avatar badging feature.

New Features in BBM Beta
BBM will now offer a new service called Subscriptions that will allow users to pay for exclusive access to specific features. Iincluded in this first release of Subscriptions:

  • Vanity PINs: have a fun idea for a PIN? Looking for an easier PIN to communicate with friends? Try out this new feature and customize your own personal BBM PIN!
  • Remove Ads: hide sponsored ads and sponsored invites in BBM with this subscription.
  • Avatar Badging: Show off your special BBM status with a badge. This badge also appears on display pictures that have an active subscription.

Subscriptions can be purchased using available payment methods in the BBM Shop. Subscriptions is available at a monthly cost and requires ongoing payments to continue the subscription.

The custom PIN options cost $1.99 per month, while the option to remove ads is $0.99 per month. This is a beta, so there is no guarantee that these will be the final prices.

A free one-month trial of access to all BBM Subscriptions options is included for testers.

If you’re currently on the beta list, you will receive an email containing the download link or you can load up TestFlight where you should find the update.
