BBM for BlackBerry 10 Gets Great Update in Beta Zone (Limited)

BBM People 

BlackBerry has an awesome new limited beta of BBM for BlackBerry 10 in the Beta Zone. Not all will be able to get in on the beta but it does pack some awesome features. My favorite is growing BBM groups to 50 people from the previous max of 30. Sadly it does not seem to work nicely with the latest leaked Beta OS so be warned.  Check out the full details below:

New Features Available in this Release:

  • Faster, easier ways to share pics, voice notes, files and attachments from Dropbox. Even allow BBM contacts to view your location for a limited time.
  • We’ve made it easier than ever to find friends on BBM with suggested contacts
  • Over 100 new emoticons to help you make your point
  • Make your group a little larger. BBM Groups now allow you to have up to 50 participants (formerly 30)
  • Worried about spamming your contacts? You’ll now be able to block 3rd party apps from automatically updating your status.

Please Note: Upgrading to latest BBM may trigger BBM setup and delete any open 1-to-1 and multi person chats. Check out all of the known issues here.

  1. If you jumped the gun like I did you may find it force closing your BBM. Simply sideload the BBM .bar file and all should be well. You may need to reload Channels tho’
