BBM Music v1.0.0.93 brings forth a tiny bit of new features, but plenty of known issues
For those of you who managed to snag an invite for BBM Music, RIM’s music streaming service, you might want to know that the app recently got updated to version – but more importantly, it’s available now for download through the BlackBerry Beta Zone.

Strangely, users might actually experience more frustration with this version since it packs only a few, and we mean tiny pool, of new features. Still, it manages to tag along the usual set of various bug fixes that irons out the kinks with the previous version. Specifically, it features the following new items:

  • Stop button in media player
  • Buy button now checks for available music store if none is installed
  • Improved performance: limit is raised to 200 contacts!!
  • Many various bug fixes

Quickly looking at the new features list, you might be wondering what the concern is all about. Well, if you happen to look at the extensive “known issues” list below, you’ll probably scratch your head and simply wonder why. Then again, we can’t expect everything to go smoothly since the app is still in beta. Plus, they’re giving users a heads up so they know what they’re getting themselves into by downloading and installing it.
