Stickers are a fun way to communicate with your friends when you use apps like LINE and Facebook Messenger, and now it looks like BBM wants to get in on the sticker fun as well as the company has recently announced that stickers will soon be arriving for the messaging platform. As it stands the stickers are currently in a limited beta and there’s no telling when it will be made available to the masses, but we’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled for more information regarding its release!
Just like stickers released for Facebook Messenger and LINE, BBM’s stickers will be made available in packs of 20-25 stickers and will feature little tiny photos based around the theme of a particular pack. There will be sticker packs that are free to download and then there will be those that will have to be paid for (could this be a way for BlackBerry to monetize the otherwise free BBM app?). We’re not sure what kind of stickers we can expect for now, save for those pictured above, but BlackBerry has promised that BBM users can look forward to stickers that they can recognize down the road, such as stickers from your favorite TV shows, movies, and so on.
LINE has been pretty good with sticker releases and have typically managed to release stickers for the latest movies or trends (anyone remember the Gangnam Style set of stickers?). Will BBM find success with stickers? We guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In the meantime any BBM users excited by this?
