BBM rolls out new dynamic emoticon and sticker picker

With the last BBM update, a lot of folks weren't happy that BBM defaulted to using stickers before emoticons in the app and didn't hold back on letting BlackBerry know the change was less than ideal. Thankfully, BlackBerry is pretty open to listening to feedback and as such, have now pushed a new BBM update into BlackBerry World that fixes the situation up a bit by meeting somewhere in the middle.

Some of you have told us that you love the new sticker picker – and some of you have told us you don't. We're listening. That's why, starting today, we are rolling out a new dynamic emoticon / sticker picker. It works like this:

Let's say you've typed something in the text field, like "I got you the perfect gift". – When you press the emotion picker it shows emoticons like it always has in past versions of BBM. Go ahead and add that smiley! Here's the cool part: If no text has been entered, and you press the button it will give you the option to send a big, bold sticker.

It's not a complete reversal on the change, but it's a reasonable resolution to the situation. It still allows BlackBerry to promote stickers while leaving those who prefer to use emoticons with quick and easy access to them. The update has appeared in BlackBerry World for most folks so if you're not seeing it, go ahead and give BlackBerry World a refresh and it'll likely appear for you. Android users should also be seeing the update on Google Play.

BBM beta update brings D and R notifications for sent pictures and more

If you have been lucky enough to be a part of the limited BBM beta program through BlackBerry Beta Zone, you may have noticed that there is an update available. It wasn't too long ago that we saw an update roll out, either. There's a few new features in this build, all pretty much welcome I think.

New BBM beta features

  • See when a contact has received and viewed your sent pictures – picture transfers now support Ds and Rs!
  • Double-take Timed Messages! Timed pictures and messages can now be viewed multiple times until the timer expires.
  • Looking for quicker access to Stickers? Tapping on the smiley face will take you to the first sticker pack in your picker for quicker access.

I like that we can now view timed messages multiple times. I have often let my finger slip and not completely read a message, with time left over, so is is definitely a good addition.

It should be noted that if you update, you may lose you existing chats. It didn't happen with me but please be aware this can happen.

Most people have been receiving an email about the update, if you have you've probably opened up Beta Zone to check for the update already. If you haven't received an email, you can check Beta Zone to see if you have the beta update available. Please note, it does seem to be a limited beta update, as has been the case for some time now.BBM beta update brings D and R notifications for sent pictures and more
