BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) Version 6.2.0.15 Available For Download In The BlackBerry Beta Zone




By Mauricio

RIM is definitely working hard on their beta apps. The latest app to receive an update in the BlackBerry Beta Zone is BlackBerry Messenger with version 6.2.0.15 available for download for those who received an invite, although most Beta Zone members should now have access. Here’s what’s new in this beta release:

  • Animated display pictures
    More animated display pictures are now built into BBM. Change your picture to suit your mood.
  • Change your name or message inline
    You can quickly change your name or status message without leaving your contact list by clicking the text at the top of the screen. To exit inline editing, just scroll down. You can still access your profile screen by clicking your display picture.
  • Streamlined voice notes
    When your convenience key set to open BlackBerry Messenger, if you highlight a contact in BBM and press the convenience key, you can start recording a voice note. Once you’re done, pressing the convenience key again will send the voice note.
  • BlackBerry Tag enhancements
    Adding contacts has never been easier. If your BlackBerry smartphone supports NFC technology, you can turn on the Allow Automatic Invitations by Tapping option. Then, as long as you or someone else has BBM open, you can add each other as contacts by aligning the backs of your smartphones. This feature requires that you both have the latest version of BBM installed on smartphones that support NFC technology.
  • Improved search
    When typing the name of a contact or group, the search ignores special characters and emoticons to make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
  • Resend a message
    If a message didn’t send (for example, if your smartphone was outside of a wireless coverage area), you can highlight the message and select Resend from the menu.

For more info and to get BBM beta version 6.2.0.15 go to blackberry.com/beta and check to see if you received an invite. If you haven’t, keep checking back since I’m sure it will open up to all Beta Zone members soon or just go official!
