BlackBerry updated its BBM chat apps with stickers, group photo sharing, and a larger attachment limit. While the app still lags behind competitors like WhatsApp and LINE, these new features should keep dedicated BBM users happy.
Stickers are making their debut in BBM. Packs of cute animals or your favorite WWE wrestlers are available to download. Packs are either free or $1.99. That could change in the future as BlackBerry experiments with pricing.
Apps like Viber, LINE, and Kakaotalk all feature stickers and charge $2-3 dollars for stickers. Stickers are fun way for people to convey emotion, better than text or emojis. BlackBerry promises to update BBM with new sticker packs on a regular basis.
BBM also updated with group photo sharing and larger attachment limits. You can now attach files up to 16MB, 10MB more than the previous limit.
