I am not sure how we missed this one but on Friday, BlackBerry rolled out a beta update for BBM on iOS devices. This update takes the version to 220.127.116.11 and adds Touch ID and passcode protection support for BBM.
- Secure BBM with a passcode and Touch ID
- Select and delete multiple chats, contacts and groups at once
- Added new color display names in multi-person chats and group conversations
- Moved My Profile to navigation menu
The following are known issues with this build:
- BBM-38866 BBM Screens may be visible without entering passcode while on a BBM Voice call by tapping on new message notifications and dismissing BBM repeatedly.
- BBM-38868 Chat Screen is visible behind Touch ID prompt after tapping on new message notification.
Let us know what you think about the new update in the comments.
