* 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 300.0.19.155
- Bug fixes
I’ve used bbm for years (since my blackberry days) and I used to prefer it to Whatsapp and FB messenger, however all the ads and non-message crap is just that - crap. I would love to see a version where all of it is gone for a fee, either buying the app outright or a small yearly subscription fee as with WhatsApp. I just want the messages (and I do like the stickers).
I also occasionally find that some messages haven’t been sent until after subsequent messages are sent later in the day, which is irritating.
It is a great app and I use it everyday, but recently have not been able to send or receive messages on mobile data only on WiFi. Please fix
I haven’t even used it and I know it’s good
