My BBM Features Wish-list

Like many users, I also want to see some features on BBM where some of them already exists on BB10 but not on Android, and maybe some new for BB10 that will make it better.

Give us your feedback please!

Part of the wish-list are features that the community is looking for, and could be a  great addition to  BBM. If i missed any features that YOU want to see, please comment below.

    I’d like to see BBM get it’s own embedded SMS client. Some people would say that’s what the hub is for, but some don’t use the hub (silly humans). Love to use BBM emoties ini SMS. Also would like to see PSTN calling through BBM so that we can call anywhere to any phone as a paid 2 or 3 cents a minute service. Of course cross platform video to BB10.

      I remember that BlackBerry wanted to release the SMS 2

    For BB10 BBM….

    It looks like we’ll never get more than the current 4 wallpapers. I would like the ability to use my wallpapers in BBM chats.

    The ability to easily and quickly hide or minimize articles I read in a channel. The minimized view could be just a strip with the article’s title.

    BB10 video chat with iOS and Android devices.

    The “comment” and “like” icons for channels are too small for the Passport. It’s been an annoyance since day 1. “Liking” and “commenting” should be easier. E.g. swipe left to comment, swipe right to like.

    Another annoyance is picture size. When I’m viewing pictures in Channels it should resize to my square screen. I want to see the entire picture as I scroll.

    Also, we should have full screen viewing in Channels. Make it a key press on the keyboard for full-screen viewing for channel articles.

    The ability to form a chat network of devices with BBM using bluetooth when you don’t have a signal or you want a private conversation. This could be good if you’re in a large structure or building or cave and there’s no carrier signal.

    Hi Roy. I want a timer in BBM to schedule the time for delivering the message to my contacts. For example writing the message at 9:00 am and telling BBM to deliver it at 6:00pm. I think it could be useful in times we need to write a lot of messages like in Christmas and new year

    Hi Roy, great ideas, now that my family are gradually moving over to BBM android, I’d love to see cross bbm video from bb10 to BBM android. I’d also like to be able to use my bbm account on another phone without wiping the messages on the other phone. I use one phone for music and apps at the gym and keep my Passport solely for communication, but means havin two separate accounts. I’d like to see more wallpapers or as someone suggested the ability to use own wallpapers within bbm. Separating bbm channels from bbm is a great idea for those who don’t know about channels and may give it a new lease of life. Still needs some input I think to make it more popular, more feature rich, a great idea that seems to be slipping away, would be a shame to see another great idea not reach its full potential

  • I think memos or notes for groups would be nice. Instead of just task lists, the ability to add notes or memos.
