RIM announced early this morning that BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) v6.0 is now officially available for download from BlackBerry App World. The new BBM v6.0 brings even more social integration, with the ability to play games, share information from certain apps, and even for developers to integrate BBM into their apps. You can check out the details of the update below or head over to BlackBerry App World to download the latest update.
Key features of BBM connected applications include the ability to:
- Share app experiences with friends – invite a BBM friend from across town or the world to join you in social game play, share restaurant suggestions, or collaborate through productivity apps – without leaving the app
- Have a BBM chat within apps – invite your BBM friends to join a game to get the scores and start talking about the game within the app
- Discover apps through friends – find new apps by viewing BBM connected apps that are automatically posted to a BBM friend’s profile
- Show off – display status updates on your BBM profile such as app status updates, trophies, achievements, pushed data alerts and more
To enable these powerful features, first download BBM 6 from BlackBerry App World.
