BBM for Windows Phone updated, introduces timed messages, stickers, BBM shop and more

BBM is yet another instant messaging app from Blackberry, but it works in a different way when compared to WhatsApp and the rest — there’s a BBM Pin which you can share with your friends to add you rather than your phone number. Recently, the folks at Blackberry have released an update for the messaging app BBM. The latest update brings all the features which were introduced in the last beta, and now, they are available for public. The latest BBM update bumps the version to, and introduces a bunch of new features including timed messages, message retraction, BBM Shop and more.

Timed Messages give users the ability to set a timer on the messages and pictures shared in chat. Once the timer runs out, the message is automatically deleted from the chat history. Another useful feature introduced with the latest update is the ability to retract a message. Believe it or not, there are times when we send messages to our friends, or any person, which we wish we didn’t send. Now, with the latest BBM, you’ll be able to remove the sent message from your BBM chat, before the recipient reads it. 

Here’s the complete change log for the app:

  • TIMED MESSAGES: Set how long contacts have access to messages and pictures shared in a chat.  
  • MESSAGE RETRACTION: ‘Retract’ a message to remove it from your BBM chat.  .
  • STICKERS & BBM SHOP: Browse and download stickers in the new BBM Shop to bring more fun to your BBM chats.
  • HD PICTURE TRANSFER: It’s easier than ever to get a high quality version of the pictures you receive in BBM.

If you happen to be a regular user of BBM on Windows Phone, head over to the Windows Phone store and grab the updated app.
