To coincide with the press release we told you about a short while ago, BBM has been updated to version 10.3.33.18, but as you will see below there's a few more changes introduced other than the Protected part.

If you treat your BBM like a social network you'll probably love the fact that the Updates tab has been renamed 'Feeds' - making it sound more social. A nice move BlackBerry.

The full features updated include:

  • Introducing support for BBM protected
  • Support for chat wallpapers in the BBM Shop
  • 16 new emoticons
  • Improved experience for adding new BBM contacts by email
  • Updates tab is now called 'Feeds'

If you're not seeing the update just yet keep on checking. It's rolling out. In the meantime, you can check out some more screenshots below.

14 Months of BlackBerry 10 and we still have no proper solution to Backup and Restore the Chat History of BBM. Thats INSANE! :(

CarronA

Same here... this BBM is one big misunderstanding. This is ridiculous at least to say. Reading crapp everywhere around here how amazing BBM is - makes me puke now.

rdgroulx

Wondering if BBM makes you puke or the piss in your Cheerios. Nobody is forcing you to use it, don't let the door hit you on the way back.

Z30 Vivo Brasil

CarronA

Yeah perfect example :)

sk8er_tor

Did you have a beta version of BBM installed previously?

Try options "save chat" or something similar.

I updated mine just now. No issues what's so ever, I've never lost my chat history on any BBM updates.

Posted via CB10

QtHelex

I've lost it already 2 times and I'm not willing to lose the chat history a third time!

estuiber

I don't claim to know your particular situation... Can't you email your chat as a sort of backup? It offers no way to restore, but at least you won't lose the conversation data.

QtHelex

No, sadly not. The most important message logs are already way too long and the mail card doesn't show up. The screen only gets grayed out for some time and nothing happens. It is maybe more than 64kB.
But stuff like Date and Time is there anyway missing, same goes to the copy to clipboard where the beginning of several conversations is also missing.

masterful

I don't have issues with the message history being deleted

mousii

What would you use this chat history? I never have something that I need to keep for a long time in a bbm chat...
If I need to keep some info I send/request an email.

Powered by BB

QtHelex

It might depends on the usecase and what you're using BBM for. If you use it only for trivial conversations it might be not very important for you, I at example use it additionally for end user support and for coordination and app development. And this stuff I want to keep.
Also a fulltext search function would be sometimes extremely handy.

wincyUt

Check your BlackBerry World. Just search for BBM and when it appears you should see it displayed as "BBM Update".

Prem WatsApp

Works, often check manually just for the heck of it...

Yup, I'm not even on 10.3 and it deleted mine.

QtHelex

What firmware are you exactly on? I guess I need to pass the future BBM updates as long as it is this unreliable. :(

Bla1ze

.3175 HOWEVER, I installed from the web rather than waiting for the update which may have had an affect on it. In other words, I forced it to update vs. naturally waiting for it to filter down.

QtHelex

I badly need finally a function to store the chat history at a safe place before performing a update. :(

gokulesh

It is there. Go to the overflow menu and email yourself the chat. That way you have it saved and available.

For all chats I need save that is what I do. Work flawlessly.

Posted via CB10

QtHelex

Doesn't work properly. No date and times are included, only about the past 50 messages get mailed, not the full history - and images and attachments are not included in the mailed history. :-(

So it doesn't work properly. Maybe a export to XML for archivement would solve the issue until there is a more proper backup and restore solution.

tinochiko

My chats are slowly coming back

lycan666

if you have installed the update by searching for bbm without the update showing , and opening it from appwrold itself it initially shows as empty , but just shut bbm and wait for a few seconds it starts loading chats etc back , had the sam issue

BBrickk

Didn't for me. I'm not on 10.3 either.

Carterbits

I wonder that BlackBerry doesn't pull this update. 3 of my family lost their history and now my wife is refusing to update until it's fixed.

This smacks of the text message history deletion issue with one of the first OS upgrades. I wonder if this isn't worthy of a front-page blurb?

Tyler Nellissen

My chats did not delete. On 10.2.1

Posted via CB10

sk8er_tor

I'm on 10.2.1 and my chats deleted only after I launched BBM by clicking on the icon. The chats were there in the Hub at first. It went through the process of associating my account in the beginning and then they were deleted.

QtHelex

Sounds like a extremely ugly bug. I hope someone responsible will take this serious and remove the current update from BlackBerry World before more harm gets caused! :(

gokulesh

It is if the chats never come back. People are reporting that they are slowly coming back.

Having said that if the chat is important then save it (by emailing it to yourself via the overflow menu) before updating.

Posted via CB10

sk8er_tor

None of mine have come back. Note that I think I was on the beta BBM previously though.

Can we install our own chat wallpapers?

No, you can only choose from the ones in the shop currently.

Wallpapers is nice addition but I love my black background.

Posted via CB10

jope28

Agreed. I like the fact there there's the option now for those who may take advantage of it, but nothing beats that dark theme on BBM.
By the way, my chat history didn't delete after update.

QtHelex

Still no backup solution to properly export a complete chat history. BB10 is now out for 14 months and they are adding more toys instead of making a reliable tool out of it. :(

gokulesh

I posted how you can to one of your other tools. They have provided the functionality from day 1. Email the history to yourself. You may want more bells and whistles or may want a different implementation but the you can't argue there is no functionality. It is there.

Posted via CB10

QtHelex

As said it doesn't work properly, much data is missing. Even at Groups it doesn't show the Mail register card at 10.2.1, same goes to long chats... maybe the 64kB limitation issue of the invocation framework other apps are facing, too.

chi-town311

Totally agree. I wish they would focus on siginificant improvements instead of the kiddy cr@p. How about landscape mode across the board. It was in the last beta version, but not its not there. WTF.

Carterbits

One of the treats is that the update will delete all your chat history!

Renaming updates to Feeds is stupid in my opinion because how does an updated contact relate to a feed?

Eitot

It's technically a feed, is it not? :)

blackmoe

Ask a hundred people what is a feed and them ask them what is an update and I'm pretty sure you will get a bigger consensus on the meaning of update.

Looooool the wallpapers look a lot like the stock ios7 bubble wallpapers, I keep expecting the bubbles to be animated tho :(

No point. Not worth updating.

Why? Because there is no added value to the average user. We really need to be able to search for contacts via phone numbers. Then let the person decide if he wish to add the contact or not.

I'm the only person who keep email addresses on their phones. None of my friends or relatives keep email addresses on their phones. So what is the point?

Most BlackBerry users aren't "average". Also, I seems your contacts / family / friends are "below" average.

BBM changes include:

- Dark Theme added to BBM Shop when dark active (replaced light)
- BBM channels name font size smaller, details are wider (removing that thick black / white line between then) more sleek now.
- Photos in BBM / BBM channels are now right up against the side. (removed black / white bar on side)
- Added wallpapers to BBM shops
- 16 New emoticons

That's just what I have found. Plus it feels smoother. Feel free to comment below if you have found others :)

So my BBM has had major issues lately and my sticker packs frequently are lost. But restoring purchases only restores 3 of my 5 packs. The toy story pack shows in my BBM shop but I have to repurchase but there was also the second set of BlackBerry emoticons (with the chef and such) that I purchased but it doesn't even show in the shop anymore. It will not restore and is not even available to purchase anymore.. was that a limited time set?

The most serious problem that i am facing is, when i tap the box where in we are suppose to type the chat. The keyboard pops up over the box where we type the chat, so basically i cannot see what i am typing. I can still send and receives chats. But it is very annoying that i cannot see my chat while typing. Is there anyone else who has the same problem???? Currently running leakes 10.3.0.296, is that the reason for this??? Haven't bothered to check the other new features coz i cannot CHAT properly and it is getting on my nerves....

James, how could you not mention that you can set chat wallpapers in this version? This is big. IOS and Android don't have this. Surely they intend to make us pay for these eventually

On 10.2.1.3174 and the BBM update was uneventful.

Chats were not deleted. However, I do have BBM configured to save chats. Maybe this is the key to a successful update.

It deleted my chats and my customized contact tones are no longer working. Too bad. I like to screen bbm ;)

I quite like the addition of the new emoticons and the wallpaper. I didn't loose my chats, so I can't speak on that. However it seems laggy when loading the chats with the wallpaper installed and also the font change and colours in Channels are not working so great visually. I dunno if I am alone on these issues. Btw am on a stl100-1 running official 10.2. I hope a leaked OS is not what's causing the chat lost issue..

Hmm..i got a grey coloured pop up instant preview when in a chat and I receive another bbm from other contact.

I don't recall that colour scheme. U think this is new?

If we could set our own pics as wallpaper (like in whatsapp)...that would be great !

Love the new dropdown menu in the chat view, let's you view Chats by category (contacts/groups/channels).
Wallpapers are a nice addition, surely another step in bringing "what the masses want".

Would have been nice to see a notification setting for Channels notifications though, still does not have that.

Did lose all my chats (had save chats enabled) but for me that is no big deal.

On my z30 it starts now really fast and it is also more smooth in the app...

All seems good except since I updated my twitter time line is now blank?

Forget it, working now. Maybe was something on twitter's end?

Got the update on T-Mobile here in NY. I'll wait to download it when I get home, over Wifi, although I have to say, I have never experience any problems loosing chats when I've upgraded in the past. From the article it the updates look good. But what ever happen to updating us to be able to attach files in Group Chats? I mean really the background are a nice little touch that have mentioned before was worth looking in to, but I think giving us the ability to attach files in Group settings is more important.

hi there!
I just updated.... but i think its the same with the old one...

It deleted my chats also. Ridiculous!

The wallpapers would look better if the chat bubbles were transparent like LINE messenger. Otherwise the update went fine.

OK just updated. No chats deleted here. Everything went smoothly! I agree about the bubbles being at least semi transparent. This is a good start. But seriously when are we going to be able to attach files in Group Chats?

They are still there. Mine were moved to page 2 while initially the regular free smilies were on page 2

Got my update. No issues here. Still got my chat histories, channel subscriptions and all else.

It actually works better now. The last OS update made it a bit screwy for a while.

Still waiting for those X-rated stickers though...

I like the new wallpaper option, that's a nice addition. Hopefully BlackBerry will add more of them, plus the ability to choose your own. :)

The Fine Print: you will no longer be able to make your pins active in the comments on bbm channels

Not sure if it's a coincidence or not, but after this update, BBM went from 'hogging' 15% of the battery (device monitor), even when it was supposed to be 'closed', to now less than 0.01%. Before, my z30 was running hot, and the battery was barely lasting a day (it normally gets 2 days).
Seems better now, at least from a resource monitoring perspective. I'll keep an eye on it.

Did NOT delete my chats.

Would really like two things to be changed.
1- the chat boxes to become transparent so that the wallpapers can be better seen

2- the ability to select any of your own photos to be set as a wallpaper for bbm

Can't believe they still haven't fixed the group chats not saving bug

Don't like it! No active pins in channels, still no ability to posts pics in group chat and the wallpapers are horrendous
