Cross Platform BlackBerry Messenger, BBM features, BBM news

You might find yourself in a position where you want to save your chat history in BlackBerry Messenger (BBM), whether it’s to save an important business message, or a special message from a friend or family member. Luckily, whether it’s on Android, iPhone, Windows Phone, or BlackBerry, the process is quite simple.

First of all, you’ll want to make sure you have the latest version of BBM downloaded onto your device.

On BBM for Android and iPhone, once you’ve opened BBM, you’ll want to tap the menu button (three vertical dots) and hit Settings. Now, simply switch the option that says Save Chat History to the ON position.

Windows Phone users tap Menu (three horizontal dots) and then tap Settings. Next, navigate to Chats and set the Save Chat History option to ON.

BlackBerry 10 users have a similar way of doing this as Windows Phone users. Open BBM and swipe down from the top of the screen. Next, tap Settings and then Chats. Finally, set the Save Chat History option to ON.

Doing the above will ensure that you’ll be able to keep your precious chat memories on file for a later time. It’s important to note that BBM for all of the above operating systems can show up to 10,000 message for each contact at this time.
