BBM Channels only recently got an update at the beginning of September but it's getting another update. It's a small jump to v10.2.20.37 and here isn't a lot of changes this time around, just a couple of new things added for both BlackBerry 10 devices and BlackBerry OS too. Nice to see more and more features being added and at a regular interval too. I can't wait for it to hit the masses. I have been enjoying BBM Channels since it first launched in beta back in May 2013.
BlackBerry 10 new features:

- Show & Hide Updates from the Updates Feed: Control your updates feed like never before! From channel settings or the updates feed itself, control which updates you would like to see!
BlackBerry OS new features:
- Improved Channels Performance: multiple bug fixes for threaded comments, search and text entry!
- UI Refinements: tweaks to the look and feel when creating a channel to improve your experience!
- Improvements to Stats: search to join method will now show up in the stats panel for channel owners!
If you're running BlackBerry 10, then just load up the BlackBerry Beta Zone app, you should see the update available, if not try again later. If you're using a BlackBerry OS device. Login to your Beta Zone account via the device browser and use the OTA link.
If haven't tried out BBM Channels yet, you can get yourself a BlackBerry Beta Zone account and try it out. Don't forget you can follow the Official CrackBerry Channel too - C00012B19.
