After months of teasing, Blackberry on Tuesday released an update for their BBM app on both Android and iOS mobile operating systems, that brings with it a bunch of cool new features.
BBM users can now send stickers which are larger, more expressive images as compared to emoji icons that have made BBM a wildly popular chatting app.
David Proulx, Senior Director, BBM at BlackBerry said, “Stickers let you personalize your chats and strike the right chord with people around the world who rely on stickers in chats when they connect with colleagues, family, friends, peers and partners.” Users can also purchase sticker packs from the newly introduced BBM Shop. The app also adds the ability to send large files including images, up to a size of 16mb.
This update will bring both the Android and iOS versions of the App to v2.1 and will be available on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store in a few hours.
