* While these features are designed to remove the message or picture 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.
Use the @mention feature to make introductions and share BBM contacts
Share the moment, or just share the laughs by posting video clips to your feeds!
Not sure what to say? Now you can reply with stickers or BBMoji!
Seamlessly bring your friends back to BBM with the "invite friends" option in the contacts tab.
Ratings and Reviews
The last set of changes to this app made it worse than useless
The set of major changes to this app made it worse than useless.
1st you can no longer create a group chat with lists and events. The only help I can find states that only the person who creates the group can add lists and events, but when a new group is created there are no options to add lists and events.
2nd when I got a new phone and used then same phone number as before it not only disabled my old phone (I was using it in wi-Fi mode) but it also disabled my iPad BBM.
3rd when I tried to get the BBM reset up on my iPad it will only let me use a phone number, which an iPad with wi-Fi only does not have. It gives the option to login with an email address, but this is not used to create an account even though on that page it has that option. If you select create a new account it just goes back to the enter phone number page.
4th while it did move the “new” groups (without the lists and events) but not the old groups. It did show one of them but it just that’s a symbol that indicates it needs to be refreshed which does not work. It just shows a message that it is recovering the chat, but does nothing with it.
The reason I say that it is worse than useless Is because I depended on this app to share lists and events with my wife and my mother. With the disabled BBM on the iPad I no longer have access to the connectivity i was use to. I use the iPad more often then the phone.
From Bad to Worse
The app doesn’t perform well anymore. It’s very slow, sometimes it takes up to 30 seconds to open a message. Sometimes when you open it it says you have no conversations and it stays like that for a while, until after that it starts opening the conversations. Furthermore, now you can’t use the Bitmoji application in BBM, it opens it but you cannot paste with Bitmojis in conversations.
I’ve contacted app support so many times end it takes ages for them to answer, and when they do, they only say “we’re sorry for the delay, are you still having problems?”. None of the suggestions have worked, I’ve even deleted and reinstalled the app and still there is no solution.
I am not the only one having this problem. So sad, it’s just to be such a great app!
THE APP NEEDS SOME FIXS
when i search for some words i said before 27 days ago or more than that ,it says *NO RESULT * and if i press the 3 dots in the right up corner in chat and go to DETAILS, i dont see any photo or video or vioce note ! only 3 voice notes from like 3 weeks only in addition , when i open a photo my friend sent me , and swipe left to see older photos , it does not swipe to another photo at all ! like its the only one photo in the whole chat !:/ and there r no older photos in the chat , but actuly there r ! when i scroll up in chat i see there are photos right there ! pleaaaase fix this problem i want to see the pictures i shared with my friend month ago :(
