Recall that in July, BlackBerry released a new beta version of its BBM for Android messaging app but today, its new version of BBM with a version number of v188.8.131.52 for Android has now been made available to the public.
It came with new features such as an improved chat UI that includes new chat balloons and static backgrounds. New and free stickers can now be found faster, and you can more easily manage the groups you belong to with options to “Leave” and “Delete.”
One of the changes that was part of the beta in July, the ability of BBM for Android users to pick custom PIN numbers for free, was unable to make it to the final version of the app. In fact, the official changelist includes:
- UI improvements to chat.
- Categorized search for easy navigation.
- Localised Discover services for videos, music, entertainment.
- Manage your groups with easy ‘Leave’ and ‘Delete’ options.
- Enhanced protection against spam.
- Bug fixes
