BBM is becoming one of the fastest evolving mobile platform heading beyond just messenger. After introducing many new personal sections in BBM Discovery page, the messenger wants to create a hub of interests within the app providing various contents. Here are the changes made in this new update:
Spam Blocking Enhancements
We’ve built additional checks and controls into BBM Messenger to reduce spam. Update to the latest version on a regular basis to take advantage of the continuous improvements we make to combat spam. Be assured these updates won’t impact chat messaging between you and contacts in your BBM contact list.
Share Video in Group Chats
Now you can share videos in group chats.It’s fun to share videos, and by giving you the option to select just a part of the video to share, BBM Messenger helps you preserve data and space.
To send videos when you’re chatting, select the media icon from the keyboard menu on your phone. Simply select your video of choice and send it. To use just a portion of the video, tap to select the segment you wish to share and send it.
Interface Improvements for Search, Icons and More
Among this release’s many improvements is a new search category for your chat messages. Previously, you could search your chat topics, contacts, and channels. Now, you can also search the messages within your chats. If you remember a particular word or phrase you’ve sent, or someone has sent to you, you can find it again by searching chat messages! This new feature can save an awful lot of scrolling time.
To use it, initiate a search from your Chats or Contacts list. BBM Messenger will sort results into four categories – ‘Chats’, ‘BBM Contacts’, ‘Contacts’, and ‘Channels’ as you type.
