Crackberry reports that the next version of BBM for iOS, Android and Windows Phone will soon offer some features taken directly from Snapchat’s playbook.
Apparently the app will soon offer the ability to send timed messages which will expire and disappear after a set period. Not only that, the app will also notify senders if the recipient takes a screen shot. Now where have I seen that before…
Another new and pretty useful feature is the ability to retract a message before it has been seen. Unfortunately this will only work for text, not images, which seems to me to be a major pity. I am sure there are many more immediately regretted images than messages sent
Crackberry expects the new betas to test the features to roll out any time now.
