The BBM version 2.2 app update is now rolling out in the iOS App Store. As you can see in the screenshot above, the full version number is and the update weighs in at 51.7MB. The full changelog for the update is as follows:

  • Simple sign up for new BBM users
  • New sign in screen for existing BBM users
  • Improved experience for adding new BBM contacts by email
  • Updates tab has been re-named ‘Feeds’
