A new BBM update has officially gone live that brings some newness to our favorite messenger. This new version is available for BB10, Android and iPhone, so regardless of which platform you use, the update is waiting for you to install.

With the new update, BBM introduces the Privacy and Control subscription. This monthly subscription will be $0.99/month and include the new Private Chat feature as well as other BBM favorites:

  • Private Chat
  • Timed Messages
  • Message Retraction
  • Editing of Messages

Aside from this new package, BBM for Android has received a complete visual overhaul. The new BBM UI on Android is more consistent with Google’s Material Design language, and frankly, it looks pretty sharp. Thankfully, you don’t have to add a monthly subscription to get this new UI design if you’re using BBM for Android.

If you’ve yet to update, make sure you do so in your own app storefront.
