They say you can't teach old dogs new tricks, however BBM the old dog of the instant messaging platform isn't letting this stop it as it tries to warm its way into the thumbs and eyes of new subscribers. The latest BBM update has borrowed a feature long considered one of the strong suits of WhatsApp.
WhatsApp has long allowed to users chat with any other user as long the user is in your phonebook or contacts. And now you can do just about the same on the BlackBerry Messenger
However this feature isn't full fledged as you would not be able to see the contact photo or status of these non-invited contacts. The new update is currently available to Android users via the Play Store and BlackBerry users via the beta zone
