BlackBerry has announced a new BBM 2.1 update for BlackBerry, Android and iPhone that would bring stickers through new BBM Shop. This offers sticker packs, similar to stickers on the Facebook Messenger. Each pack would have 20 to 25 stickers. BBM shop has both free and paid (about $1.99) stickers. This update  also brings option to send larger files up to 16MB on BlackBerry 10, Android and iPhone.

New features in BBM 2.1

BlackBerry also plans to offer free WWE stickers, just in time for the WrestleMania 30. BlackBerry asks BB 10 users to be updated to the latest version (v10.2.1) for the best experience. The update would start rolling out in a few hours through the respective app stores.
