BBM chatting no longer requires an invitation


BlackBerry on Saturday rolled out a new BBM update for the Android and BlackBerry 10 devices that will let users manage their social circles with ease. The update will soon be made available for iOS as well.

The updated BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) will now include new contact categories – Contacts and BBM Contacts.

In Contacts category, you will find out that who all in your device’s contacts list are already using BBM, and can simply start chatting with them without any invite required. But both the users will not be able to see each other’s Display Picture or BBM Status unless they add each other.

BBM Contacts is separate category, and mainly are those who are not in your phone’s contacts list but are added on your BBM.
