It’s been a while since users of BB10 devices have seen an update to our beloved BBM. With Emtek now looking after consumer BBM for iOS and Android, ther have been updates coming thick and fast. All sorts of great new features are being added all the time.
Today however, BlackBerry have released an update to BBM for BB10 devices. And a great new feature has now been added. You can now email yourself your BBM contact list, including PINs. The email is sent as a TXT (plain text) attachment.
This is a great feature to have to save a copy of all your BBM contacts and PINs, in case you ever need them. Also very handy if you are setting up another BBM ID, and need to send invites to everyone.
To access this feature, click the contacts tab at the bottom of BBM, then click the menu ( 3 vertical dots at bottom right) and there you will see the option to export contacts as an email. (Due to not wanting to expose my contacts, I haven’t posted any pics of the actual contact lists, lol).
While it is only a minor update, it’s great to see BlackBerry showing some BBM love for us BB10 users.
So if you haven’t already, head to BlackBerry World and grab the update or you can also find it HERE.
