BlackBerry updates BBM with stickers and group photo sharing
On Tuesday, BlackBerry updated BBM for the BlackBerry, Android and iOS platforms. The update brings stickers to the messaging app. These are brighter, larger and more expressive than emoticons. The stickers can be purchased from the BBM Store, which also is included as part of today's update. Some sticker packs will be free while others will cost $1.99 for 20 to 25 stickers.

WWE will be giving a free sticker away to BBM members to commemorate WWE 30. In addition, those who download the update will receive a free sticker pack made up of BlackBerry emoticons.

Along with the stickers, and the BBM Store, the update brings the ability for BBM users to share photos in multi-person chats. The pictures will initially appear as a thumbnail that can be opened up to full size. Higher quality pictures, and videos and presentations, can now be shared on BBM chat. That is because BlackBerry has increased the size of a file that can be shared, from 6MB to 16MB.

...said the troll that has absolutely NO LIFE except to troll BlackBerry articles on phone arena. You really are a sad, small, simple minded person.
