Not long ago, the BBM has been the subject of an update on all three platforms that currently support it or BlackBerry, Android and Apple iOS. This has resulted in several new features so that the recent upgrade to BBM 2.0 introduced the ability to voice calls via BBM with Android smartphones and iPhone along with many new emoticons and sharing of your location. But the BlackBerry does not stop here as we want to transform the BBM messaging platform in a high level to ensure a simple and effective way to keep in touch.
With the next update will see the introduction of Stickers to add to our chat available exclusively on the new BBM Shop. But first things first. Unlike the emoticons that we all know, the stickers are more daring, with the most beautiful images, much more visible, larger in size that will be added to the right of our chat. The stickers are available in packs quite specific upon purchase at the new BBM Shop that we will find in the BlackBerry Messenger.
Each pack contains between 20 and 25 stickers related to a theme or a character. In addition, many of our favorite emoticons will be freely available in sticker. Once you install the various packages of stickers, these are accessible directly from the BBM in the exact same manner as you enter the emoticons. Clicking on a sticker, this is not entered in the text we are writing, but is immediately sent.
A speech deserves the BBM Shop since BlackBerry has found a way to monetize the multi-platform BlackBerry Messenger. Currently the stickers are the only things purchased within the BBM Shop. This does not mean that in the near future BlackBerry can not incorporate other solutions to allow users to express their feelings via BBM. Presumably will be available for in-app purchases for some BBM Channel, to integrate with the web channel or special stickers to customize our channels BBM. In any case will be many surprises and special.
