A couple of days back RIM announced the new BlackBerry Messenger with BBM Voice, a new feature that will allow users to call their BBM contacts via a WiFi network. Today a new update of BBM 7 has been released and now available for Beta Zone member to download. Here’s the full list of bugs fixed with this release:
- BBM chats were not restored during device upgrade. User has to sign into BBID and then re-restore the chats from the backup file.
- Incoming call doesnt ring if user is in camera app
- Speaker enabled when incoming call rejected and already on BBM Voice call
- Messages from BBM Voice are cut off frequently
- Device switch failed, client stuck at “Restoring BBM” state
- After hanging up after a voice chat longer than 5 minutes, the device that did not hang up remains on the calling screen
- With a song playing, when a user receives a BBM Voice call the music continues to play in the background of the ringtone
- User cannot accept calls properly while content protection enabled and password locked
- While recording a voice note, if an BBM Voice chat is initiated no audio is heard between devices
- Avatar display picture not being updated correctly for BBM Voice calls
- Broadcast messages are received in black text
- Active BBM Voice calls are randomly disconnecting
- Contacts see each other as unavailable although both are registered and can see other contacts as available
- Chat Tear
- BBM Groups – Text entry field in group chat expands to cover up the last message in chat history instead of the chat history scrolling up
- Contact list search feature randomly stops returning results
- No missed call message appears when the caller ends the call before the receiver picks up
- Wrong message appears when declining a voice chat using ‘Reply in BBM’
- After accepting a call after 30 seconds of ringing the device being called gets stuck on connecting screen
- Voice chats exceeding 13 minutes maybe disconnected
