BBM (BlackBerry Messenger) is perhaps the clearest evidence of how BlackBerry has changed in recent years. Once one of the company's core features and one that it kept to its own platform, BBM has since moved to be a cross platform service and has been eclipsed by other messenger services. That said, BBM still has tens of millions of users across iOS and Android and the former of those platforms is seeing its BBM app get an update.

The Android version of BBM is getting an update that will bring the service in line with versions on iOS and BlackBerry 10, both of which has already received the new features included here. One of those new features is the ability to search BBM chats, contacts, groups and channel, while another lets like posts on the BBM feed.

You can also now delete any messages and find someone?s location by using Glympse. One of the coolest features of BBM has been its ability to retract a message once it has already been sent, allowing users to avoid any faux pas. The new Android update lets users also retract any images they change their minds about.
