BBM 6.1
BBM Icons

The latest beta release of BlackBerry Messenger 6.1 has now landed in the BlackBerry Beta Zone for testing, if you've been testing out the previous version -- you'll want to go ahead and give this one a go as well as it has quite a few bug fixes in it. Though, it also contains quite a few remaining ones as well, so keep that in mind.


  • If you changed the options for recent updates, the maximum number of recent updates shown might not have changed.
  • If you turned on content protection and if you're using BlackBerry 6.0 or 7.0, you might not have been able to forward a BBM contact.
  • If you shared an existing appointment with a group from the Calendar app, a duplicate appointment might have appeared in your calendar. 

Again, the changes are rather small in comparison to the 'known issues' -- so make sure you read the full list which is available as a PDF download. Otherwise, you'll find the download available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone right now.
