BBM Music has been in beta and has started opening up to more beta users along with the update allowing more BBM Music friends to share with, from 140 to 200! There’s a few other things that are new. If you have BBM Music, it’s time to update. If not, check out the details…
The app is available in the BlackBerry App World, but you need to be registered with the BlackBerry Beta Zone and signed up for BBM Music for a key code to make it work. One thing I have noticed is that if you are on a limited data plan, it’s best to use WiFi for music as it can use quite a bit.
The fact more friends can be added is great, allowing even more shared music. While you have 50 songs to choose, there’s no limit as to how many songs you can actually have because you can share. It’s great to hear new music, find new taste in music, and also to remember the old songs too.
Here’s what’s new in the update:
- Stop button in media player
- Buy button now checks for available music store if none is installed
- Improved performance: limit is raised to 200 contacts!!!
- Many various bug fixes
