BBM for iOS beta moves into v2.7.0.33

With the last beta version having gone public a few days ago, the BlackBerry Beta Zone has already fired up a new BBM beta putting it into v2.7.0.33. This one isn't a massive update but there's still a few new things on the list to check out plus, some known issues that need to be worked through as well.

New Features

We have lots of new features and improvements to share based on your feedback this build! Check out:

  • Secure BBM with a passcode and Touch ID
  • Select and delete multiple chats, contacts and groups at once
  • Added new color display names in multi-person chats and group conversations
  • Moved My Profile to navigation menu

…and more! We'll be sending a survey soon that focuses on this new experience to collect your feedback.

Known Issues

The following are known issues with this build:

  • BBM-38866 BBM Screens may be visible without entering passcode while on a BBM Voice call by tapping on new message notifications and dismissing BBM repeatedly.
  • BBM-38868 Chat Screen is visible behind Touch ID prompt after tapping on new message notification.

As always, if you've been invited to the beta program, you can now load up TestFlight and find the update waiting for you. If you're not part of the program, you'll have to hang tight until this one officially gets rolled out.
