If BBM is still your messaging app of choice and you're down with running their beta releases, a new version has now arrived on the Google Play Store and it goes beyond bug fixes and performance improvements. For this release, there are new features to improve BBM calls, a new image editor and more!
- Newly introduced Picture in Picture mode allows you to minimize your video call without hanging up
- A new image editor for you to personalize your picture by drawing, cropping or rotating it
- From your chat list, pin your favorite chat or mark unread messages as read by long pressing on a chat
- We've made navigation simpler in BBM! The new 'Calls' tab lets you make calls easier. To find the 'Me/More' tab, click on your avatar icon on the top left of the chat tab
As it is a beta, there's no telling when or even if this stuff will be pushed out to a wider audience but if you're looking to test it all out, it's there for you. Just fire up the Google Play Store and get it downloaded.
