With the release of BBM 7.0 on December 10th, 2012, you now have the ability to make and receive BBM Voice calls over Wi-Fi.
In addition to BBM Voice, 16 new emoticons have been added, and you’ll also notice that BBM 7.0 is now linked with your BlackBerry ID for easy synchronization of your BBM Profile and Contacts.
For those that haven’t upgraded yet, I’d recommend verifying that you can access your BlackBerry ID account by visiting the BlackBerry ID website and signing in so you can check that your login credentials are accurate. In the event you are unable to log in to your BlackBerry ID because you’ve forgotten your password, check out our post on how to reset your BlackBerry ID password before upgrading to BBM 7.0. Provided you can log into your BlackBerry ID and are using a BlackBerry smartphone with BlackBerry 6 or BlackBerry 7 OS, you are able to upgrade to BBM 7.0.
