RIM has announced that they will be releasing BlackBerry Messenger version 6.0.1 today, including some cool new features that make it easier to share and discover new apps from within BBM itself.  Here’s whats 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, which starts 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 – Users can share app-specific content with BBM contacts regardless of whether the contact has the app installed.
  • Include BBM v5.0 users in application invites – Now users can now invite BBM v5.0 & BBM v6.0 contacts to join in the fun and share BBM-connected app experiences.

Once BBM 6.0.1 is available, you’ll be able to download it from App World or directly from here.
