It seems that BlackBerry might have something new to announce with regards to BBM. The official BBM Twitter account has recently tweeted an image followed by a caption that reads, “Something new is coming…” While we’re not sure what this means, based on the icon it has been speculated by the folks at N4BB that we might be looking at a Material Design update for the Android version of the app.
When BlackBerry first released BBM on both iOS and Android, it shared similar themes to the BlackBerry version of the app. We suppose this makes sense since BlackBerry wanted a familiar look, but as iOS and Android evolved with their designs, BBM started to look dated, especially in the face of other messaging platforms.
The Canadian company has since issued an update to its iOS app in which a more iOS-friendly theme was introduced. However the Android version was left largely untouched, but as N4BB has speculated, the tease on Twitter will most probably address that. Of course this is just speculation at this point as the image could really be for just about anything, but either way we will be keeping our eyes and ears peeled for more information. In the meantime what do you guys think the tease could be for?
