BBM update makes attaching photos and files simpler

It looks like our favorite instant messaging app just received an update. It's not too big an update but it does seem like BlackBerry has made it simpler to attach photos. Currently, by default, when you tap the paper clip icon to attach a photo, the voice note option is selected. You then had to tap the picture icon to then get the option to attach one. Now, it defaults to attaching file or photos when you tap the paper clip icon.

What's new in BBM v10.4.2.8/v10.4.3.8/v10.4.4.8?

  • Simplified flow for attaching pictures, files and other content to BBM chats
  • In app upgrade notifications helps users to download the latest version of BBM
  • The ability for users to rate their call experience for BBM Voice calls

Note, depending on what OS version you're running (10.2, 10.2.1 or 10.3), you'll see different version numbers for the BBM update. It's all the same though.

It does look like this same update is available for those in iOS and Android, so if you have buddies on those platforms, let them know too. As usual, the update is just rolling out, some people are seeing it already while it's not yet showing for others. You can manually search for BBM in BlackBerry World if you're not seeing it yet, sometimes you'll find an update waiting that way. Otherwise, what a bit before trying again.
