BlackBerry has released an update to BBM Beta for iOS last week this update brought some new features now BlackBerry has rolled out a beta update for BBM for BlackBerry 10. This update is currently available in the BlackBerry Beta Zone for those of you that are in the current beta. This update brings a new private chat feature and the ability to reorder your sticker packs without the workaround we have had to us in the past.

What’s new?

  • Private Chat: make sure your sensitive messages are kept confidential. In a private chat, all contact information is hidden, and new message notifications are discreet. Your chat is automatically deleted on both ends when the chat is inactive or closed. To start a private chat, open the menu from within a 1:1 chat and select “Start Private Chat”. Private chat is included in the new Privacy and Control Subscription, which bundles several powerful features into one convenient subscription.

New subscription:

  • Private Chat
  • Edit Message
  • Timed Messages and Pictures
  • Retract

All existing Timed and Retracted Messages Subscribers will be upgraded to the new Privacy and Control Subscription at no additional cost. Remember: we are technically limited from providing these bundles for free in beta. Please only test if you are interested in purchasing the subscription.

Additional Features:

  • Ability to Order Sticker Packs: Now you have the ability to customize which Sticker Packs you see in your main Sticker Picker view using the Stickers Settings Menu.
  • Quote Message: Reference and reply to a previous message in your chat. To quote a message, tap and hold on it and select “Quote Message”.

Head on over to the BlackBerry Beta Zone for the limited beta update for BlackBerry.
