BBM Voice brings VoIP capability to Android and iOS for the first time after being omitted from the app’s feature set since its cross-platform launch late last year.
With BBM Channels, users can join conversations with BBM users, brands, businesses, communities and any other organization or cause. BBM Channels is like a mixture between Official Accounts on LINE and WeChat and walkie-talkie channels on Zello.
The update also brings:
- Faster, easier sharing – quickly add photos, voice notes, files and attachments to your BBM chats from your smartphone or Dropbox account
- Location sharing – Share your location temporarily, powered by Glympse.
- 100 new emoticons
- Larger BBM Groups – You can now chat and share with 50 people in your BBM Group
If you haven’t already, you can get the latest update via Google Play and iTunes.
