After spending several weeks in beta, the latest official build of BBM has now rolled out to the masses with a laundry list of changes including bringing the classic BBM emoji's back, the ability to send images or videos without compression by sending as a file and more.

What's New

  • Everyone's favourite (classic) BBM Emoji's are back!
  • BBM QR code scanner now scans all QR codes (open offers, promos or websites)
  • Voice notes & large messages now supported in groups
  • View your friend's timeline of past photo and avatar updates by clicking on their avatar in feeds or channel comments
  • Send images or videos without compression by sending as a file
  • Improved groups setup and invite processes

For some folks, these additions are not going to be anything new as it's a mix of what was in the beta and what has already been rolled out within the official releases, but it's a nice bringing together of all the features which no doubt has some additional bugfixes included as well. You can download BBM right now from Google Play and the App Store.

Thanks, @coffee-turtle!
