BBM 2.1 for Android brings support for stickers, larger file transfers

BlackBerry is continuing its streak of coming up with constant improvements to the BBM client for Android (and iOS), and with the latest update, the Canadian company is jumping on the stickers bandwagon to make the messaging experience more visual than it has been before, following in the footsteps of other popular messaging apps like Line and WeChat.

The stickers will be available in both free and paid packs through BBM Shop, with each pack containing 20-25 stickers for brands such as WWE and Shaun the Sheep or a theme or character like CosCat, Gilbert’s Tales or Bubble Bots, and we’ll likely see new additions to these stickers as new trends develop. Apart from stickers, the update also adds support for sending and receiving pictures in multi-person chats and larger file transfers of up to 16 MB (it was limited to 10 MB in previous versions.)

The latest version doesn’t seem to be live just yet, but when it does become available, you will be able to download the update from Google Play.
