It looks like the next major update for BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) for Android is closer than we initially thought.
Even though the Canadian company has promised that it will bring lots of new features on Android and iOS platforms this year, only a few days have passed from 2014 and BlackBerry has already released a new version of BBM for Android.
BerryReview reports that a new beta version of BBM for Android is now available for download via Beta Zone, which brings some popular features that are only available in the BlackBerry application.
It appears that BlackBerry has started the rollout of BBM for Android 18.104.22.168, which reportedly adds both BBM Channels and BBM Voice features to the Android platform.
In addition, the update is said to include more than 100 new emoticons, along with increased BBM Group limits. There’s no timeframe for the release of this new version of BBM for Android to the general public, but we suspect that it might arrive within the next few days.
