New BBM Beta with a bright stickers splash page!


The hard working BBM group at BlackBerry have dropped another beta release on the people. With this latest Beta, you get the highly anticipated increase in file attachments; from 6mb to 16mb, respectfully. The ability to share pictures in a multi-person chat as also been added.

They also have a beautiful splash page promoting stickers when you first go into the BBM app after the beta update (it will delete all conversations). Which I think is well done and very colorful, especially on my Z30.

In BlackBerry’s blog page, they explain how BBM ads and sponsored channels work. In the blog, they highlight how they will be promoting BBM channels in three steps.

1)Featured Placements
2)Sponsored Invites
3)Sponsored Posts

They also mention doing this while STILL keeping security their number one priority. (check out this link  for further details)

If you were one of the lucky ones that got the beta invite, give us a shout in the comments and let us know what you think. If you’re a channel owner, how do you see this helping you?
