BBM beta update brings the ability to hide sticker packs, bug fixes

The BBM beta for BlackBerry 10 has been updated today, and while it isn't a huge update, it does bring along the ability to hide sticker packs, which, as BlackBerry notes, could come in handy for packing away those seasonal packs. Of course, the update brings along the usual bug fixes as well. Here's the full breakdown of what's new in BBM beta build 10.8:

What's New this Build?

  • Hide Sticker Packs! No more holiday cheer? Haunted by your spooky Halloween Sticker Packs? Have we got news for you! This update includes the ability to hide Sticker Packs from the Sticker Picker in BBM Chats.

A couple big fixes… You reported them, we fixed them, now it's time to keep testing them! Watch out for fixes to these issues:

  • Non-BBM Contacts displaying status messages
  • 'Re-invite'/'Delete Contact' buttons appear even after a non-BBM Contact becomes a BBM contact

Also worth noting, you can now ensure your upgrade is chat-loss free! Before upgrading, be sure to go BBM > Settings > Toggle Save Chat History ON and click Back-up Now.

Fortunately, there are no known issues in this build, so hopefully the update is smooth as butter. To grab the update, you can head over to the Beta Zone app on your BlackBerry 10 device to get started.
