BlackBerry has released a new beta version of BBM for Windows Phone, adding a few new features and bug fixes to the messaging app. Here’s what’s new:
- Contacts lose their avatars
- Toast message for invite when the app signing in
- Country and Time does not always show up
- Contacts / Chats / Feeds screens slow to re-appear when returning from another screen
- Emoticons are not rendering properly
- And many localization improvments
- Add a new contact in person with the barcode or using the suggested contacts feature.
- Chat with them and share a picture.
- If you’ve added a few new contacts, start a group!
- Follow changes using the Feeds panel, and give your contacts something to view in theirs by updating your avatar (display picture)
