BlackBerry has released an update to BBM Enterprise for Android (BBMe), bringing the ability to record and send videos directly from within a chat and more.
In addition to the update for Android, the update is available for BBM Enterprise for macOS and BBM Enterprise for Windows.
Users can now mark messages as favourites for later reference, making it much easier to highlight messages and return to them.
Users can now also forward additional message types such as files, pictures, contacts, and more.
Finally, you can now manually verify encryption keys for added security.
Users can download BBMe for Android from the Google Play store. BBMe will be available for free for the first year. After the first year, a 6-month subscription will be available for USD $2.49.
BBMe can be downloaded on any device that uses Android, iOS, Windows or MAC operating systems. The sender and recipient each have unique public/private encryption and signing keys. These keys are generated on the device by a FIPS 140-2 certified cryptographic library and are not controlled by BlackBerry.
Each message uses a new symmetric key for message encryption. Additionally, TLS encryption between the device and BlackBerry’s infrastructure protects BBMe messages from eavesdropping or manipulation.
From a feature perspective, BBMe users can conduct group chats, voice and video calls, as well as edit, retract, or set an expiration time on a single message. They’ll also know when a message is received and read, and have the ability to share files, voice notes, and their location. BBMe for individual use can be used on up to five devices simultaneously.
