Can be downloaded via Google Play, App Store and BlackBerry World.

By CBR Staff Writer

BlackBerry has launched BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) version 2.6 app for Android, iOS and BlackBerry operating systems, featuring a range of enhancements based on user feedback.

The new app now adds chat stickers to groups in addition to longer timed messages, which enable users to set a time for when sent messages get deleted once opened.

BlackBerry’s Jesse Ariss said in a statement: "Group StickersOne of your most requested features, stickers in groups, is now available."

"Tell your group what you’re really thinking with a big, bold sticker. (My favorite is Lil’ Frenchie). Speaking of stickers, don’t forget about our current promotion – All BBM sticker packs are $0.99 USD for a limited time."

A new design has also been launched for the iOS users, which now comes optimised for iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus devices.

Ariss added: "You can’t help but notice the sleek and modern design updates like a flat UI and attractive transparencies. These adjustments make BBM look sharp across supported Apple devices."

BBM for Android now comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop support, alongside a new landscape view and the facility to share multiple images and attachments.
