If you want to get interrupted by a call, or notifications from a specific application when Bedside Mode is enabled you can because it is pretty customizable.

BBM Update: Control What You Share, With Confidence

0 comments

Starting today, an update to BBM packed full of new features and improvements is rolling out for BlackBerry 10, Android and iOS.

If you’re a BBM user, then you already know that BBM is the best way to confidently share private moments with friends. Sending a timed picture that self-destructs, or retracting a message that was meant for one of your other friends, gives you control and peace of mind.

But what happens if the person you’re chatting with takes a screenshot? My coworker Zach looks like he’s already planning to fake being sick tomorrow. Not wanting to get stuck with all the work, I took a screenshot of his plan. Despite Zach sending me a timed message, I can still capture it. And although Zach gets notified that I took the screenshot, the damage is already done. Yikes poor Zach!

Zach should have used the new Private Chat
