BBM for Android gets an update, making adding contacts easier and more

Last updated:

BlackBerry have released an upgrade to BBM for Android, taking the latest version to v2.2.

One of the biggest criticisms of the Android and iOS versions of BBM was the difficulty in adding and finding contacts. This update simplifies those areas.

Easier sign up

The number of fields it takes to get signed up has been reduced. Name, Email and Password is now all you need to get started on BBM.

Easier Friending

Adding new contacts has been a somewhat cumbersome and complicated process. This release simplifies the process so that when you receive a BBM invite by email – all you have to do is click the link and presto, you’re BBM contacts. No need to send a PIN invite back.

What’s New:

  • Simple sign up for new BBM users
  • New sign in screen for existing BBM users
  • Improved experience for adding new BBM contacts by email
  • Updates tab has been re-named ‘Feeds’
  • 16 new emoticons
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements
