BBM Enterprise is getting video calling support and lots of other new features
BBM Enterprise, the application aimed at businesses, has just received a major update that adds a plethora of new features and improvements. BlackBerry announced the update will only make it to Android and BlackBerry 10 devices, but the iOS version of the app will receive it soon, too.
The highlights of the latest version of BBM Enterprise include video calling, which is now possible between BlackBerry 10 and Android/iOS contacts. Also, the BBM Protected app on BlackBerry 10 devices has been renamed BBM Enterprise.
Furthermore, there have been a lot of group chat changes included in the update. For example, group chats with 250 participants have been further enhanced so that users who join can see message history. It's now possible to send timed messages and retract individual messages or all sent messages in the group chats.
BlackBerry removed support for enhanced groups with calendar and lists, which means you'll need to start a new secure group conversation after updating to the latest version of BBM Enterprise.
The new BBM Enterprise adds a new unified start chat flow that makes it easier to search for local and remote contacts at the same time. A new phone number field is now available for users in the cloud directory.
Lastly, the update brings many security improvements that are meant to prevent spam messages and invites from being received. Keep in mind that if you see the update on your BlackBerry 10 device, you won't get any of the changes mentioned above unless you're not using BBM Enterprise.
