Blackberry Messenger (BBM) 5.0.1.38 first impressions

Just last week, the latest Blackberry Messenger version was available for public download. I recently updated mine today, from 5.0.0.57 to 5.0.1.38. The total size 5944 KB and the download finished in less than a minute. But it depends if your connection is fast or fair enough to download around 6MB of data in just a few seconds.

So what are my first impressions? Nothing is really new here, the GUI was enhanced a bit and that’s all that I can notice. Others said that there are new features and options, but I have yet to find out.

The only difference I noticed as of now is the New Multiperson Chat. At first, I thought it was a new feature, but I later realized that it’s the same with the “Invite Conference” feature. It was just renamed. The chat boxes are enhanced with borders and emphasis on the edges.

A lot of blogs said that no change logs has been provided, just like the other BBM updates. So we really don’t know what are the new magical features they added in this latest update.

As of now, I’m enjoying the new user interface of BBM 5.0.1.38. I also noticed that it’s faster compared to the previous version. The design is also cooler and snappier. And… I think that’s all. I have no comments about it. Hopefully soon they can add a live video chat feature in the BBM. Soon guys, real soon!
