Earlier this month, we let you know that BlackBerry was looking to introduce new features that helps to enhance privacy. Well, today, BlackBerry is officially rolling it out now. What do you guys think of it?
Here’s a quick overview of what you’ll find in this latest release of BBM:
- Timed Messages: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat*
- Message Retraction: ‘Retract’ a message to remove it from your BBM chat*
- A quicker sticker picker: Adding stickers to your BBM chats is now even quicker with a new picker
- HD Picture Transfer: It’s easier than ever to get a high quality version of the pictures you receive in BBM
- Discover Music: See what music your contacts are listening to in BBM Feeds.
However, some features may not be free afterall:
Timed Messages and Message Retraction features are premium features that will be available free and without restriction over the next three months. After this time, unrestricted access to these features will become part of a broader bundle of features that will be offered as part of a BBM subscription.
How and how much do you think BlackBerry should charge?
