Product Features

Check out the new features included in BBM 7.0.1

BBM 7.0.1 now supports BlackBerry 5.0 Devices

BBM Voice – For the times when you want to hear a friend’s laughter instead of reading their LOL’s, BBM now comes with BBM Voice. Now you have the freedom to switch almost any BBM conversation from text to a call and speak to your BBM contacts, from almost anywhere they are in the world for free over WiFi. You’ll instantly know whenever BBM friends are available to call. Alternatively, if the moment isn’t right to speak with a friend who’s calling, simply choose to respond discretely by text.

  • Visual Indicator – Know instantly when BBM friends are available to voice call – no guesswork needed. Leaving you to decide how and when to connect with all your BBM friends.
  • Multitasking with BBM Voice – Do more while you chat – with BBM Voice you are free to respond to BBM text chats, check emails or navigate to other apps while still on a BBM Voice call.
  • Accessory compatible – Choose how you chat with BBM Voice – BBM Voice is compatible with your accessories. Use the handset, the speakerphone, Bluetooth accessory or a wired headset – and easily switch between them via the onscreen menu item in the active chat screen.

BBID Synchronization – Users can now switch even more easily between BlackBerry smartphones since BBM 7 allows your BBM profile, Groups and Contacts to be linked to your BBID.  Integration with BBID will also allow users to seamlessly transfer all of their BBM information to a BlackBerry 10 device.

blackberry-9320-2_2This device may not be revolutionary based on the specs, but one of the coolest new addition to it is the dedicated BBM button. RIM did away with some of the side convenience keys and now they are adding one back, a BBM button. BBM has been a huge success for RIM and now they are making it even easier to use with a dedicated button. This looks to be the first device to sports it.  The device is going to support OS 7.1, with a 512MB of RAM. An EDOF Camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and according to some leaked slides from before the device should be out in the next month or so in emerging markets.

BlackBerry Messenger Updated to v6.1.0.70

 BBM Updated

RIM is all about the updates today. Terrence let me know that RIM has started rolling out an update to BBM bringing us to v6.1.0.70. No word on what the update brings but expect to see it soon on your device. My guess is it might speed up Bridge integration with OS 2.0 but that is just speculation.

BlackBerry Messenger has been updated with tons of new elements.The BlackBerry Beta Zone has hosted BBM v6.0.1 since last month, If you were in the beta there have only been some small updates.

What’s new?

  • Explore BBM-connected Apps – BBM users will now be able to pull up “Explore BBM-connected Apps” from a menu in the BBM Contacts screen. This action is designed to automate a BlackBerry App World storefront search for “BBM” by redirecting users to a list of up to 25 of the most popular BBM-connected apps available.
  • Sharing App content with your BBM Contacts is easier – Many BBM users have told us that they love sharing app content with their BBM friends who use the same app, but they also wanted to share content with their BBM friends who don’t have the app. BBM v6.0.1 is designed so that you can now share app-specific content with your BBM contacts regardless of whether your contact has the app installed.For example, foursquare users may want to share a tip or badge they’ve recently earned, or Huffington Post users may want to share a breaking news story with their BBM contacts. Your friends or contacts will also be prompted to download the BBM-connected app if they don’t have it installed.
  • Include BBM v5.0 users in application invites – Now you can include even more friends in the fun! You can now invite BBM v5.0 & BBM v6.0 contacts to join in the fun and share BBM-connected app experiences. Your BBM v5.0 contacts will be prompted to download BBM v6.0 in order to access BBM-connected apps. For users new to BBM v6.0 and BBM-connected apps, here’s a quick rundown of some benefits to upgrading (make sure to read our BBM 6: Apps Made Socialblog post for more information).
    • Inviting BBM friends to experience your favorite apps
    • Chatting with BBM contacts from inside BBM-connected apps
    • Discovering apps and updates through friends by browsing their recent profile updates of their contacts profile

Download BBM 6.0.1 in  App World! The update is still not showing for all at this time.
