BBM FOR ANDROID TO GET MATERIAL DESIGN OVERHAUL

By

The BBM app for Android would be getting a much needed design overhaul soon. The redesigned BBM app currently in the beta zone follows the material design principles laid down by Google. Besides the new look, the BBM app would be coming out with some new features such as Private chat, Edit messages and Publish in feed.

Private Chats
In a private chat, your contact's name is hidden, and new message notifications are turned off. Your chat is automatically deleted after a short time, or when you end the private chat.

Edit Message
The perfect complement to message retraction, Replace provides you with the power to edit a sent message.

Publish in Feed
Share status updates faster, right from your BBM feed.


N.B: Although these features are available in the beta app, they might not make their way to the stable version.
