We just wanted to let you all know that as Igor mentioned yesterday there is a new version of BBM now rolling out to us all. This latest update brings the app to version and we have listed the complete change log below for those that want to check it out.


Here’s the change log

This update is now available to BlackBerry 10 devices. If you aren’t seeing it yet just hang tight as it makes its way through the system. You can also log into BlackBerry World on your PC and see if it is showing there for you.

For any of you that can’t locate the new custom PINs option here’s how to get there.

  • Open you BBM app
  • Tap up top where your name is (this opens your profile settings)
  • From there you should notice the ” Customize my PIN” in the middle of the page.

For those looking to subscribe to the “no ads” feature just tap on this link from your device.



We have also received reports that BBM is being updated on iOS and Android devices today as well. So if you, or someone you know has one of those devices pass on to keep an eye out for that update.

Hit up the comments below and let us know if you plan on subscribing to get your custom PIN or removing the ads. I will be removing the ads for sure.
