    It has been announced by Blackberry recently that version 2.2 of its BBM client will soon be coming to iOS and Android devices. It includes an easier signup flow and the process for adding new contacts will be improved upon. The release of version 2.2 focuses on streamlining the BBM experience making it so users can join the BBM community much easier and make adding contacts much quicker.

    The simplified process for new users will only request a name, password and e-mail address compared to the current app, which requires much more information. According to Blackberry, here’s what you can look forward to in the new version:

    The process of adding a friend or contact will also be simplified. In the current version, users with an invite need to send their own PIN back to the other party in order to become mutual friends. However, in version 2.2, this step will be automated. Simply tapping the invitation link in the e-mail will complete the process for users.

    Lastly, version 2.2 of BBM will bring 16 new emoticons. Some of which include, a hacker, a hotdog, maracas, and more. iOS users should expect to see the update in the upcoming days meanwhile Android users may already be able to download it in Google Play.

    Currently, version of BBM is a free 49.9 MB download from the App Store.
