Providing impactful notifications to users has long been one of the aspects of BBM that our users love. We’re taking that a step further in improving the BBM for Windows :
? BBM for Windows will now see message details as part of the notification without having to open the app
? BBM users that send their BBM for Windows Phone friends a message will now see a “D” even if their Windows Phone friend doesn’t have BBM running
? The new notification number displayed will now indicate the number of new chats (previously displayed the total number of new messages)
Even More Features
Since the last BBM v1 for Windows Phone beta build, we’ve also introduced:
? People you know suggestions now appear full screen during setup
? Invitation screen updates
? Long press to move contact into category
? UI treatment to make groups stand out in contact list
? Implemented Contacts pinning from Homepage
? Groups invite improvements
? Support for new emoticons
? Barcode scanner/view finder display
Software Quality Improvements
The story for this updated version of BBM for Windows Phone doesn’t end with the new features. We’ve carefully pursued through issues that you’ve raised on the discussions forums and other feedback tools to target software quality improvements for this release too. The most notable software fixes are below:
? Selecting BBM contact crashes app after changing BBID password
? BBM stops responding when using emoticons
? Portion of BBM screen gets black for some time while selecting contacts to invite to a group after it has been created
? Chats- Share location- Map not displaying the accurate location when tapped on the chat bubble
? User is taken to the sent invitation tab on hitting back after opening an email invite
? Invitation: Scanning barcode seen in scanning device screen become stretched
? Invites: Contact is not adding directly to the users contact
? Feeds: Text 'No updates' displayed instead of 'No new items'
