Cross platform. The original encrypted instant messaging app. But security secondary to Signal. WhatsApp is questionable security... but everyone has it. What happened to dark mode?! Two strikes, BlackBerry. It used to be my go - to messaging app but it's lost its lustre. That's why I gave it 3 instead of 4 out of 5 stars.
I love all the features of this chat app. But the groups let it down because they can only hold 50 people and no videos or gifs. And the same with those channel feeds. Just too limited in terms of media. Reach is shrinking as ppl switch to more flexible apps. There has been a recent substantial improvement in voice call quality.
Like the app, does everything in one place. Not quite as slick though as the same on BB itself (I'm a recent convert to android) lot of shortcuts used in BB aren't here. Still, very good app if you like to scroll all messages in one place and receive notifications without having to open different apps all the time.
I appreciate that I can: receive, save, and send photos and videos seamlessly. The quality of said media is good. Of course, the camera being right on the site pleases me. The News feed is not varied: I do not appreciate the limited feed, but I do *get it*. Overseas calling, and texting service is almost dichotomous. The texting is again, seamless, as in excellent: the calling...not. Overall service though; I couldn't *live well* without it!!!!
Like omg my contacts are not named Britnee and Tiffany. I am not an 11-year old girl, I'm a 40-something Man with bad eyes. I just read a slew of comments on here from the past couple weeks about the latest "epic fail" update. Come on BBM, fix it already, you've got a LOT of pissed-off users. Make us happy. Make it so. Make it all go away.
They've changed BBM recently to allow all platforms to use the video calling feature. It works great. Also, if you're in a data - scarce environment, such as a deployment, the voice compression BBM uses its great for the voice calls. Good cross - platform app.
We've added new features making BBM more fun and easy to use:
- Customize your unique BBM PIN for free
- Video sharing enabled for all chats (one-to-one, groups, MPC) with improved quality and speed
- Customise background colors in chat
- Grid view in Discover
