How to request higher quality photos via BBM

I like being able to share a photo easily through BBM. Snap a picture, then share to a BBM contact. It's quick and easy. It's my preferred way of sending a picture I took on one of BlackBerry devices to another one.

However, if you've ever sent a photo via BBM you'll notice that the quality of the photo degrades. But did you know that you can request for a higher quality version of the photo? That's right you can get the photo in all it's original quality. It's quick and easy to do too.

Request a higher quality photo via BBM

  • In the BBM chat you were sent the photo, tap and hold the photo
  • An overflow menu pops up on the right, tap HQ
  • A request is sent to the sender, once they accept the higher quality version will be sent
