BlackBerry Messenger 6.1 was released in the BlackBerry Beta Zone and brings with it some very cool new features -- one of which is the ability to change the chat bubble color for contacts. This is a pretty simple was to make your conversations a bit more fun and individual. Use specific colors for contacts, or the same for groups of contacts (I have green for my family and blue for my cyber friends). All in all a great new tool that is easy to setup, keep reading to find out how.
In BBM, highlight the contact in your list for which you'd like to set a color
Press the Menu key, then choose View Contact Profile
Next to Bubble Color, click the dropdown menu
Choose the color you would like for the contact and save
That's it! Now you can go nuts setting any of the available colors for your BBM contacts and spice up your conversations.
Please note this feature is only available in BBM 6.1. If you are running an older version you will not see this feature.
