[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1425261147879{margin: 0px !important;border-width: 0px !important;padding: 0px !important;}”]BlackBerry yesterday announced several new customization features for BBM for Android, iOS and BlackBerry 10 and both the BlackBerry 10 and Android versions are now available to download.

New BBM Features:

  • Custom BBM PINs: One of the most requested BBM features has been the ability to create a customized BBM PIN that’s unique and easy to share. Starting today, BBM users who upgrade to the latest version will be able to create a 6-8 digits alphanumeric Custom PIN of their choice. Custom PINs can be purchased in the BBM Shop for $1.99 USD per month. In addition to Custom PINs, BBM users can also purchase a no-ad subscription that will remove advertisements from the BBM Feed for $0.99 USD per month.
  • Android Wear Support Now Available: Android users will be excited to hear that BBM now supports a wide range of Android Wear smartwatches to enable BBM users to communicate faster and more discreetly on-the-go. With the latest update, BBM for Android Wear will enable BBM users to seamlessly:o Receive alerts on the watch when new BBM messages come in, see the sender and discreetly preview messages.
    • Read BBM messages in their entirety, navigate among messages and dismiss notifications with a simple swipe.
    • Respond to messages hands-free with Google Now or choose from pre-defined messages to quickly send a response.
    • Accept BBM invites from the watch without the need to access their smartphone
  • Multiple BBM Channel Contributors: BBM Channels now supports multiple channel contributors through the web client; making it easier for the over 1 million BBM Channel owners to manage and post new content.
  • Share Photos in Group Chats: With the latest update, users can also share photos directly in a group chat, enabling a seamless chat experience. Users will know immediately when a photo has been shared with the group and can view it without leaving the chat.

An upgraded version of BBM for iOS will be available shortly.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][templatera id=”49566″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
