With BBM, you can chat and share in real time with your friends, family, and coworkers. You control your contact list and decide who can add you as a contact. During a BBM chat, you can see when someone has read your message or is typing a reply, and you can share pictures and other files.
Besides messaging with your BBM contacts, you can also chat with several people in a group chat. Plus, with BBM Channels you can connect with people outside of your contact list about topics that interest you. Join channels from people, brands, and services to see their posts, or create your own channel.
When you open BBM, all of your existing chats, including group chats, are displayed.
You can interact with many areas of BBM. For example, you can tap a contact to open a BBM chat. You can tap the contact again to open the contact's BBM profile. To access more features, you can use the menus.
