BlackBerry is aiming to bring roll out version 2.2 of BBM to BlackBerry devices in the coming weeks. A blog post at BlackBerry details that version 2.2 will bring an easier sign up, easier friending and new emoticons.

BlackBerry has cut down the number of input fields it takes to sign up. You only need your name, email and password to get started with version 2.2 of BBM. To make becoming friends easier, BlackBerry has made it so that users can become friends just by clicking the BBM invite in an email. There will be no need to send a PIN invite back.

And finally, a bonus for those who don't like to text and would rather send emoticons. Version 2.2 of BBM adds 16 new emoticons. A hotdog, maracas, a hacker, and hot lips are just some of the new emoticons you'll be sending your friends.

Have an Android or iOS device? You'll be able to take BBM 2.2 for a spin shortly. Android users will receive version 2.2 sometime tonight, while iOS users will receive the update in the coming days.

The release of BBM 2.2 will bring the additions above, but BlackBerry has stated there will be a few extra surprises for those using BBM on BlackBerry. Look for the update in the coming weeks.

What do you think the extra surprises could be for BlackBerry users?

Great that BlackBerry users are getting it after android users...I guess we aren't a big enough user base to devote to

BlackBerry users will get surprises?

Wish I could have my contacts back at the bottom. I never use channels or groups really but frequently use contacts now I have to dig through a menu since channels came out. Counter intuitive if you ask me.

I completely agree! I don't use Groups either, and to always have to go digging in the side menu is a pain.

Phuckguy

I just use the "start a chat" button at the top right of the screen. Since they added that I found the "contacts" button redundant.

Surprise! Still no push to talk.

I see that you are really pushing for the push to talk,
Come to think of it that would be a wonderful feature for BBM to have.

I sold my Z10 a few months ago and bought a Note 3 and haven't looked back. Just wish I would of done it sooner. BlackBerry is more concerned with enterprise because that's the only way they will be profitable again

FirstBerry101

It makes sense, this update is targeted at ios and android, easier invites and sign up. Anything to get more users on platform.

At this point if you own a BlackBerry chances are you have bbm going.

Indeed it does. The primary improvements have to do with signup. BlackBerry users generally don't have any problems getting onto BBM. It's baked right in.

Anilu7

I'm confident that it's because our update brings nicer features. Gadway did mention "a few special things added for good measure" for BlackBerry users. I'm not worried. Ours is still a better experience - BBM Video and Screen Share are phenomenal!

seascape

Screen share is particularly nifty. That's something the community should promote more.

Screen share is indeed awesome. I use it to help my family members for setting or trouble shooting...

We should get more emoticons and they should have a place where you can suggest some cuz I get its for a big audience but there are alot of these that I don't have use for and dont see anybody else using them either.

The more the merrier, don't get me wrong but I still think we're missing some. And another thing is we should be able to get emoticons that we can use as avatars. Would help too.

Need to let BlackBerry employees go? Start with the entire BlackBerry Link team including the "genius" behind the idea. ;^L

kennyiceberry

I'm sort of with you in terms of dissatisfaction with BlackBerry Link. I mean how difficult can it be to create what is in essence another cloud services client? It has surely come to something when all the other protocols one could use as alternatives work flawlessly (I am using the FTP client in PlayCloud, Bonjour and others) whilst Link is telling me my phone won't connect. You're right. Get rid of them and get some more motivated and competent people on board.

I know! I have a few friends on BBM iPhone and Android and sometimes I can't hear them when I call on Bbm voice. What's unacceptable is when I call other blackberry phones and it cuts out when both have full bars of signal.
Increase the reliability before any thing else.

Posted via CB10

mkye86

Even making phone calls over wifi is unreliable. It's embarrassing! I'm done fighting for blackberry. I continue to use it because I like it. But I've lost steam asking my friends to download. Just for them to delete later. I have only 3 friends that have really stayed out of 20 I was able to convince to get it.

Bbm voice and video work flawlessly for me. Use it exclusively to talk to my gf, never have a problem, even when conversations stretch past the hour mark. I can even video calls mom's playbook, she loves being able to SEE her son on a call for free. If you have issues on wifi or 4g coverage time to check your router/carrier. No one i know or have convinced to download it has problems with voice call either.

Now msg delivery, some times that's touch and go

aarondates4real

Agree with you 1000%... cos I use bbm voice for my business calls and it works even much more better when calling peeps on iPhone and Android

MwineBBVet

No need to be so down in BlackBerry over this. If you have ever used FaceTime it cuts out over Wi-Fi as well. Often issue is connectivity to Wi-Fi or bandwith issues. BB VIDEO quality surpasses FaceTime imo. Can't speak to Android options and have never used Skype, but it has similar issues from what I've heard. I have found BB Video Chat reliable.

Any time I've used BBM video it does work really well. But whenever I try to connect with iPhones over voice. It's really poor. Calls drop. They can't hear me. It's dumb. I won't use it with them.

BBM voice works great for me. I use it very often to communicate with my son and my brother. They are both on iPhones and I am on Android.

Vector-SS

I suggested BBM Voice to my mom and the first time we tried it was perfect. After that, it's never worked since. She now simply cannot hear me at all. I just talk to myself. And for those blaming the connection, Skype works perfectly fine.

I have not used it often but it has always worked flawlessly for me. Having Canada wide unlimited minutes and extremely cheap international calling, I don't see the point in WiFi calling.

I find the cross platform voice phenomenal for the contact I use it for. I can hear everything crystal clear, sometimes too clear. I can hear people having conversations in the background just like as if I were in the same room. If the connection is weak, that's when there are issues, but that happens with all VoIP.

Here are my take:
1. Why we  fans get later than andro n IOs?
2. Fix the bbm call quality as so inconsistence. Sometimes you can, sometimes you can't
3. Emoticons means nothing if only work for single chat. Make it work for Group also..

Inconsistencies are due to your network or your wifi. Not much to do with the software

I still want to see BBM Peak. To be able to go under attachment, choose the bbm peak icon, select the picture or take a picture, choose the receiver and choose the length of time they can view it. Like you do with Glympse. I know it's exactly like snapchat which I have never nor will ever use, but to have the ability to do it right in bbm with your contacts would be pretty cool. I call it BBM Peak as you're letting someone 'peak' at the pic, and it just sounds like a good name for this amazing OS!!!

Next BBM update....BBM Peak

kennyg17

Let's get this straight. The BBM experience is different on iPhone. Users (who don't have the hub) don't receive the instant notice of a new message with a red star or other notice. They have to go into the app to check and see if there is a new message.
My iPhone friends like BBM but find it less useful (and don't share with other iPhoners) because they don't get a good notice of new postings. BlackBerry .... please FIX this if possible so that it becomes truly Cross-platform !!!

** People seem to be wondering that iOS/Android are getting update first. Actually, that's not true.

BlackBerry users got an update to BBM already several weeks ago (where we got ability to send pictures (but not videos) in group chat and multi-person chats from within chat window. Instead of having to exit chat window, go to group albums and uploading a picture there.

IOS/Android did not get that update. So, their update had been pending for several weeks now.

This will bring them upto speed, plus give them a little more.

that's a good move from BBRY! the fact that now iOS & Android user base are a lot larger, having the version 2.2 released from today will encourage more of them to update and to switch to BBM whereas at the same time, the native BBM is getting its final polish & optimisations (of course with new features too!!) so it's looking good!

hopefully the surprises for BBM on BB10 will be more capabilities & more features than the current beta version, and hopefully those surprises will drool our Droiders and iFriends!!! if that's the case, i'll say it's WORTH THE WAIT.

so, come on BBRY, show that to us! show that the BEST BBM experience is nowhere EXCEPT on BB phones (BB10 in particular)!!!!

Multi-person video chat maybe....

MoritaBB

I'll prefer more enhancing than new features... lots of current features should be copy from whatsapp first... then go with new features.. for example unread msgs, un listened voice note.. multiple picture share and others...

Whatever the reason Android and IOS get the update earlier than BlackBerry, you failed BlackBerry!

Rubbish, bbm for BlackBerry is already streets ahead of other platforms.

I don't get all the negativity.

Q10Bold

What about to silence down the ringtone when Im already in the chat? Like whatsapp did?!!

It would be great to use and see emojis through texts and not just bbm..like come on. Other than that bb10 is a great/secured system.

Does the Android update give landscape mode in bbm app? Got a buddy on Android and that is his biggest complaint.

BBM still lacks basic features that Whatsapp scores highly in, such as sending multiple pictures at once, backup chat history so you can switch between devices. (only contacts get migrate at present).

versatile1984

Yes, I hope they include multiple selection in this update.

Posted via CB10

versatile1984

Whoa! Thats a great news, I'm sure by reducing the step to sign up for bbm in ios and android will encourage more people to use bbm. I'm just eagerly awaiting bbm surprise. All the best

Why do ppl complain just because ios and android get the update first? We've received many updates and a version in beta zone right now. Relax folks.

FINALLY! A streamlined and enhanced invitation / find friends process. I hope it's true. Long overdue, and the biggest roadblock to further BBM mushrooming.
Now WP8 support please.

They should have text size controls for BBM on the iphone. The phone is so small and the text size is small, people over 40 generally can't read it. That is one major complaint that I know of. As for the video and wifi calling, connections must be good.....that is a must for any VOIP.

michaelyoder

Could it be that for "surprise" features exclusive to BB owners that are set to arrive in a few weeks require cross-platforms to upgrade first -- else it wouldn't work properly? In any case (whatever it is), there's a purpose and we just don't know it yet.

Just get Bbm to run properly would be nice..pic,or videos for example are better sent from the text message if it doesn't send from Sms it sends mms perfect, where as Bbm often does not function in terms of moving pic, or pic just frustrating so i rather use normal text

I think if they add video feature for android and ios will b much better and ability to add by fone number too via just like most msg app..will b easier for many people

Yea, that would be grat to have BBM on desktop. But look how long is it taking to Blackberry do that. That's a shame.

You should be able to send consecutive emoticons without the keyboard showing back up every time you select an emoticon. I really hate that!

Guys, BBM for BlackBerry is currently in beta testing and will include the following :

Landscape mode
Option to have keyboard 'Always On' for touchscreen users
Inline group pictures - Pictures will also show up in the Pictures section
Slight bigger emoticons
BBM Channels tabs tweaked - Shows name for tab instead of icons
In BBM previews modified - Now show under the BBM top bar and are grey.

Much more than registration and emoticon updates!

ingris

Which device is shown in the title picture for this post? The tabs show Chats - Contacts - Groups... my Up to date Z10 shows Chats - Updates - Groups. I find the updates section of Bbm to be one of the single most useless features to ever "grace" a BlackBerry device. I'd love to replace that tab with either contacts or channels which I access much more frequently! Maybe BlackBerry can add an option to allow us the users to decide which are most used tabs are to be displayed...

Please I hope that the issue with group chats not saving is resolved. Also please BBM developers go back to selective chat saving history and deleting and move away from it being a global setting. Ad it was on Legacy devices. Enough of the gimmicks and please address functionality and making it work

Hopefully it's bigger emoticons on my z30 they are tiny, free stickers, multiple photo sends, ability to view previously sent photos, PTT, send HQ pics by default.

Improved notifications for ios/android

Definitely agree with free stickers and HQ pics. I'm not poor but I'm definitely not paying for stickers that I'll never use but once

I would love the ability to have multiple attachments as presently we can only attach a single item to each BBM message.

I'm hoping one surprise is bbm to bbm gaming or boobs.. everybody loves boobs.. especially surprise boobs..

It's not a "tumah"

BlackBerry video calling I've never had a problem. Even in the car driving on the motorway (someone else driving not me)

Face time on my iPad! OMG it's terrible I call them on the phone or bbm them. FYI I have satellite wifi so no issues with speed. Personally I've never had a problem with BlackBerry or my staff so if you have issues deal them them, stop moaning on here and go and get a life. Because I know apple and android devices have much the same issues as any other suppliers.

Example my apple desktop won't run one drive but my iPad will. But it will save in sky drive so explain that but I don't go moaning on the Apple chat pages. I don't care enough. Things don't always work its tech.

Anybody knows why the Samsung galaxy S 4 or 5 is outputting so loudly in the microphone ? When bbm voicing from my z30 with Samsung users friend it's always saturated as if they were yelling in their phones. Any ideas ?

When I open BBM I'd like to see my contacts view NOT my Chats. There should be a default view choice. Definitely tired of all the clicks it requires
