New BBM Beta Brings Even More Welcome Features

My favorite app just keeps getting better.

There is a new BBM beta version in the Google Play Store, and it’s not just bug fixes.

The elusive BBM Desktop has returned! We’ve seen the BBM Desktop come and go with various beta releases. Well, it’s back and I’m extremely happy about it.

BBM Group chats can now support up to 300 members. Come on, admit it, that’s more friends than you have on Facebook.

BBMoji is now also located within the Me Tab next to BBM Desktop, allowing you to take a new selfie or edit your BBMoji’s face without having to open the BBMoji app.

On call screen notifies when callee is busy via message and tone. No more wondering if someone is ignoring you. This will be good for my ego.

The update promises that you can “show off samples of your newly downloaded sticker on Feeds & Timeline”, but I haven’t discovered how to do it yet. Have you?

Faster sharing of any types of documents in one on one and group chats. Faster is always better. Right?

If you’re within the BBM beta program, be sure to head to the Google Play Store and grab the latest. You won’t be sorry.
