BBM Gets A Welcome Update for Android

BBM for android receives a new update that’s rolling out after the 14.2 (five days ago) and brings us new features and some improvements. Some of the features in the change log seem to already be in BBM.

Just say no to spam!

So what’s new ?

  • Introduced ability to sign in using phone number or Email
  • Existing users with Email accounts can add phone number to their profile and easily find new friends on BBM
  • BBM Discover screen is in list view for easier discover-ability
  • Improved discover-ability of channel chat with the introduction of channel representive
  • User can report invites as spam

It’s great to see BBM (Emtek) bring the spam feature and it will be much appreciated if we will be able to report channel comments as spam and not just invites.

Did you try the new phone number feature ? share with us in comments and forum.

    I’ve always had the option to use either my email or phone number, does this mean I can be logged in with my phone number to the same account that’s with my email
