You should now be able to express yourself better with smiley faces. The app now supports BBM QR Code scanner using which it is possible to scan all kinds of QR codes in order to get discounts, promos on websites, on products and so on. The activity can be done within the interface of the app without having to open an individual app to get it done on an Android or iOS phone.
Group chats on BBM now supports large messages and the ability to send voice notes makes it easier to communicate with a large group of people. When you use the messenger, you should now be able to view all the photos posted by a friend in a timeline and open their avatar by clicking on the updates channel. The app now allows you to send images and videos without compressing their file size.
