Latest BBM for Android update focuses on media sharing experience


A new version of BlackBerry Messenger has just been released in the Google Play Store. The Canadian company made quite a lot of improvements to the media sharing experience in the latest version of BBM.

Here are some of the most important changes that will benefit BBM users after updating to this new iteration. First off, you'll now be able to customize you unique BBM PIN for free, as well as the background colors in chat.

There's also a new grid view in the Discover tab for a better reading experience. More importantly, BBM users will now be able to take control over their data consumption since the app can selectively auto-download photos and video using Wi-Fi only, or a combination of Wi-Fi and mobile data. You can set your data consumption behavior from the settings menu so that it fits your needs.

Another nifty tweak is aimed at those using BBM to send photos and videos. Starting with this version of the app, you will no longer need to tap the “Request HD” option to receive photos and videos in HD quality since they are now automatically HD quality.

These are some of the most important changes included in the recent BBM updates, so make sure to update to benefit from them. Keep in mind that the same update was released in the App Store about a week ago, so if you're using an iOS device, then you already have these features.
