* While these features are designed to remove a message or picture from the recipient’s BBM chat view, they do not prevent recipients from capturing an image of the content by taking a screenshot or using an image capture device. Retracting a message after it has been read by the recipient will remove the message from the BBM chat view but will not affect copies of the message that the recipient may have made prior to the message being retracted.
What's New in Version 300.0.15.81
BBM is renewing its look and feel! We're making it more fun and friendly to use, with new experiences and activities that you can share with friends.
Dumpster fire. Do not download.
This app is nothing but spam and advertisements. Do not use.
Update: Can not send images with this app ("file transfer failed").
Update: BBM just sent a push "bulletin" that was a corporate announcement. These notifications cannot be disabled and you cannot opt out.
They seem to think their users think the spam in this app is BBM sending them ads. Those are two separate problems. If you use this app, you are guaranteed to get a) spam from Indonesia and its neighbors and b) spam from Blackberry. Still a dumpster fire. Still being prompted for reviews, so here you go.
Update: Now receiving a few spam invites from foreign countries daily (as well as "invites" from BBM that are actually ads)
Update: Signs you out randomly because "you haven't used the app in a while".
Update: nagged for another review. Still receiving spam contact requests every day. Still being shown fake "notifications" in-app that are actually ads.
Update: was again nagged for a review, so here you go. The app now fails to deliver messages for up to 24 hours. Doesn't have any trouble delivering its spam push notifications for in-app purchases though.
Update: leaving another review because the app asked me to. The app now automatically subscribes you to a channel called "BBM broadcasts" that sends spam push notifications for in-app purchases.
Update: This app is still a flaming dumpster fire. I get spam requests from contacts and groups in other continents every day. Still can't send videos. Still can't use Dropbox. Still receiving "invites" that are advertisements. Still getting a nag to leave a review on every update, which I'm happy to do.
Update: BBM now sends even more spam "invites" that are advertisements in disguise. The latest update also broke its Dropbox integration, breaking the only way to send videos with this app.
Update: This is another update that deletes all chat history.
Update: Latest update deletes all chat history and requires you to reset your password.
Update: BBM now spams you with "bulletins" about stickers and other junk.
Blackberry spams you with "invites" that appear to be contact requests, but are actually ads for free to play games and dating apps.
The platform is full of spammers who hit you up constantly with fake contact requests.
If you have the app open when you receive a message, the app will not notify you, and you may miss the message.
You cannot send videos with this app.
Good quality conversations
My man and I talk everyday on this app and face time 5 mornings a week as we are separated by over 4,000 Km's. I have nothing but great things to say about an app that allows us to do this and with high quality at that. There are a few glitches once in awhile but I find that is normal with any technology as the kinks are worked out of the system 😊👍
Thank you BBM!!
Good way of communicating to friends. Like it
