BBM updated in BlackBerry World with the ability to hide stickers, chat with address book contacts and more!

After spending some time in the BlackBerry Beta Zone, the latest update to BBM has now arrived in BlackBerry World and is available to all. This release is packing quite a few features including the ability to hide purchased sticker packs as well as the option to chat with contacts from your address book.

  • Start chatting with your address book contacts that are already using BBM - No invite required!
  • We've bundled timed pictures, timed messages and retracted messages into a new BBM Subscription.
  • Broadcast messages can now be sent to specific categories.
  • Manage your Stickers - Choose which sticker packs are displayed in your Sticker Picker.
  • Improved Voice Chat experience.\nYou now have the option to block receiving messages from a multi-person chat.

BBM Protected Updates:

  • Support auto passphrase in BBM Protected Groups so users don't have to manually enter a passphrase
  • Address file/picture transfer issues under BBM Protected and Protected Plus
  • Improvements to Protected manual passphrase exchange - Requires both contacts to be running v2.8 on iOS and Android or v10.8 on BlackBerry 10

Essentially, this update is a compilation of the past few Beta Zone releases, so it's a pretty complete package. You'll find the update live in BlackBerry World right now.
