Material Design BBM update now available to all Android users

After a brief sojourn in beta land, BBM for Android has been updated with a fresh coat of Material Design.

The update adds well-worn elements of Google’s design language along with flourishes from the old design we’re used to seeing from the Waterloo-based company.

BBM for Android also introduces a number of new features in this recent build, including support for a new Privacy and Control Subscription, a $0.99 per month package that offers the following, as per BlackBerry’s blog:

  • Private Chat
  • Timed messages and pictures
  • Retract messages and pictures
  • Edit Message (Which is also new to the subscription. Made a mistake? Now you can retract it, change it, and send your message again.)

While the Privacy and Control Subscription is available to all BBM users on iOS, Android and BlackBerry, the Android app has also received some improvements to font rendering and sticker organization.

Download BBM for Android from the Play Store.
