BlackBerry Messenger BBM now available in Beta Zone

What’s new in BlackBerry Messenger 6.0?

You may not notice very many visible changes between BBM 5.0 and BBM 6.0 at this time, but stay tuned! For now, here are a few new things you might notice in this version:

- Updated BBM branding
- More “snappy” and responsive feel
- Any alerts set for SMS contacts are now preserved in BBM once SMS contact is integrated with BBM
- Visual distinction of message drafts vs. sent messages
- “Invite a Text Messaging Contact” — easier to search contacts
- Location Search — you can now search for a location before sending, similar to the Location Search experience via SMS
- Location Sending — you can now detect location with cell tower triangulation or GPS
- Appointment Sending – sending appointment or calendar events is now a similar experience to that of sending appointment via SMS
