Over the past year or so, BBM has gone through many changes visually and one of the most shall we say disliked changes was the addition of a new background image for chats. While some folks didn't mind the cartoony style of it, others, hated it. Luckily, BBM got the feedback loud and clear and the latest BBM update rolling out through Google Play and the App Store brings the ability to change the chat background image. Here's how you can change it!

Before & After

  • Open BBM
  • Go to the 'Me' tab
  • Go to Chats
  • Then go to Chat Background
  • From there, you can choose from one included color images.
  • Just tap on the desired one so that a check mark is showing and then exit out

Once that process has been completed all your chats, whether individual or in groups, will use that background color. It would have been a nice measure to allow folks to use their own custom images but eh, beggars can't be choosers, at least the option is there to change it now which is better than before. Hoorah!
