Private Chat comes to BBM for iOS beta
Timed messages allow you to set how long a recipient has to read a message you've sent before it self destructs like on Snapchat. Message retraction allows you to take back a message you've sent before the recipient reads it. Those with a subscription to the timed messages and message retraction services will automatically be given a Privacy and Controls subscription.
The new version of the BBM for iOS beta, which is available via an invitation from BlackBerry, takes the app to version 2188.8.131.52. If you have been invited, the update will be listed in TestFlight. The update also adds the ability to quote a previous message when you reply to a chat. To quote a message, long press on it and select "Quote Message." In addition, the update fixes the slow performance of the app when it first opens and when scrolling. It also fixes an issue that the app has rendering the iOS keyboard.
