RIM has started a public beta for a new version of BlackBerry Messenger in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. This version of BBM is 184.108.40.206 and doesn’t seem to be limited to certain regions. An earlier version of BBM was previously leaked but since version 220.127.116.11 is coming from RIM, it’s probably a lot more stable. Changes in this beta version of BBM include:
- Updated BBM branding
- More “snappy” and responsive feel
- Any alerts set for SMS contacts are now preserved in BBM once SMS contact is integrated with BBM
- Visual distinction of message drafts vs. sent messages
- “Invite a Text Messaging Contact” — easier to search contacts
- Location Search — you can now search for a location before sending, similar to the Location Search experience via SMS
- Location Sending — you can now detect location with cell tower triangulation or GPS
- Appointment Sending – sending appointment or calendar events is now a similar experience to that of sending appointment via SMS
