BBM Voice, which is already on BBM for BlackBerry 10, and will allow users to make free phone calls to other BBM users regardless of platform. After the update, BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android users will be able to share pictures, documents and voice notes with one click.

Additionally BlackBerry 10, iOS and Android users will be able to share pictures, documents and voice notes with a single click once they have updated their to the latest version of BBM.

BBM for iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 will also get access to BBM Channels.These are basically discussion groups that users can create. Topics can include sports, hobbies, movies, television shows and more. Posting to a channel starts off a discussion and specific chat hours can be posted. BBM subscribers are alerted whenever there is a new post on a channel they follow. BlackBerry is hoping to monetize Channels by allowing companies to open a channel for a brand or specific product.

The update adds location sharing, powered by Glympse, which allows BBM subscriber to share his location with specific members, for a certain period of time. This is perfect for those times when you're running late and you want those you are supposed to meet, to be able to follow your progress to the meeting place in real time. The beauty of Glympse is that you set the period of time that your location is available for others to see. Once the time you set has expired, your whereabouts become private once again.

With the update to BBM, users receive support for the cloud based storage service Dropbox, allowing you to send files from your personal Dropbox account to your BBM contacts, and save files from BBM to your Dropbox account. Lastly, the update adds 100 new emoticons, bringing the total number to 200. Some of the new emoticons were based on drawings submitted by BBM subscribers.
