A few days back, BlackBerry released updates for BBM on Android and BlackBerry devices. Now, the update is being pushed to iOS as well, which you should be seeing in the App store too. With this new update, you can now take advantage of enhanced privacy and control features that allows you to take control over the messages and content that you share without any subscription fees. This means that the BlackBerry Messenger Privacy pack is now free for all!
In short, you can ‘Retract’ their message and pictures from recipients to take them back from their phone if they were sent as a mistake, or if you no longer wish them to be accessible. Plus, by setting a timer, you can also control how long contacts can view messages and pictures that have been shared or
communicate your location for only as long as you want to.
Additional key features include:
- Forward messages from one chat to another
- Ability to mute notifications for a multi-person chat on Android
- Scroll through all pictures shared within a 1:1 or multi-person chat on Android
- Choose if users want pictures taken within BBM chats saved to their device
- Video sharing improvements – capture and share larger videos on iOS
- Redesigned chat screen look and feel on iOS
- Multi-select mode to allow multiple messages to be deleted, retracted, or forwarded at once on iOS
- Retract and edit messages in group chats on BlackBerry 10
- Retract chat – retract all sent messages when you end a chat on BlackBerry 10
- Marshmallow (Android 6.0) support
