BlackBerry releases new BBM Beta into the BlackBerry Beta Zone

BlackBerry has just released a brand new BBM update into the BlackBerry Beta Zone. This beta update brings BBM Search, the ability to retract photos, messages in multi-person chats and the ability to edit sent messages in multi-person chats.

What’s new in the BBM Beta?

  • BBM Search: Finding a contact or chat just got easier with BBM Search; enter in a name, word or number that you’re looking for in the Search field and BBM will return the results.
  • Retract Photos: Ever send a photo to someone in error? Good news – the retract functionality is being extended to photos so you can remove an accidentally sent photo from your contact’s chat.
  • Retract Messages in Multi-person Chat: Retract has also been extended to multi-person chats, so messages and photos can be retracted even when chatting in a multi-person chat.
  • Edit Sent Message in Multi-person Chat: Multi-person chat is also enhanced with the ability for users to edit a message that has been sent. This feature exists with 1:1 chats today and is now extended to MPC as well.

If you are lucky enough to be in on the beta all you have to do is head on over to the BlackBerry Beta Zone application on your BlackBerry 10 device and download the update.
