BBM Music version has now been released in the BlackBerry Beta Zone and is available for all those who are members. Here’s what’s new:

Invitation Requests: When an invitation request is sent from a ‘friend of a friend’ through Recent Updates you will now be able to view songs and the common friend before accepting/declining an invitation.

‘Favorite’ Songs and Contacts: You can now highlight songs or contacts as favorites in BBM Music 1.2! For a favorite contact, when you visit a contact’s page you can select “favorite” from the top menu bar. This will add a highlighted yellow star beside the contact’s name in the contacts tab which will only be visible to you. You will now have the ability to search by “favorite” contacts within the contacts tab.

Intelligent Shuffle: Intelligent shuffle offers you the ability to shuffle songs by favorite songs, genre, artist, song popularity, album, contact, release year or recently added. To access the intelligent shuffle, on the home tab click “shuffle” which will display the shuffle menu shown below.

A Default Friend for all New Users: New users to BBM Music will now have a default friend listed as a contact.

Application Enhancements: If you are an existing BBM Music user you will also notice improved notification for friends already using BBM Music, improved performance at startup and easier access to account information from the profile screen.
