BBM for BlackBerry 10 updated through the Beta Zone

If you're part of the BBM beta through the BlackBerry Beta Zone, you'll want to go ahead and check for the newest release which has now arrived for BlackBerry 10. Unlike the last release, this update doesn't pack in as many new features but there's still one worth mentioning.

Adding on to the already existing functionality of Glympse, this release allows you to request other BBM users to send you a Glympse so you can track their real-time location. On top of that, there's also improvements to BBM Search which was introduced in the previous beta.

New Features:

  • Request a Glympse: Want to know your friend's ETA? You can now request they send you a Glympse so you can track their realtime location. Both you and your friend need to be on the latest client to benefit from this feature in beta.
  • BBM Search (Updated): search results now takes you to first instance of the matched results. Search results are now also more accurate. Give it a try!

To update just open up the BlackBerry Beta Zone app and find it in the Downloads tab. To avoid losing BBM chats, it is advisable to back up your chat history by going to BBM->Settings->Toggle Save Chat History ON-> Click Back-up Now. Please note, BlackBerry Beta Zone is only available in certain regions. If it is available in your region you can register for a free account and while this beta is available for existing users, it will not be available to new users as it is a limited beta.
