BBM Messenger Invigorates its Sticker Shop with Animated Stickers and Easier Navigation

There are two new things waiting for you in the BBM Messenger Sticker Shop: Animated stickers. Already, they are attracting attention and promising to bring some fun into your chats.

We also gave our Sticker Shop a makeover with our most recent release to make it easier for you to find what you’re looking for. We’ve added so many sticker packs in the last year that we decided to organize things a little differently to make it more browseable. Find the Sticker Shop at the top of your Discover menu.
Liven up your chats with animated stickers! We’ve added several sticker packs that contain animated GIFs, or moving images, that you can share in your BBM chats. When you have animated stickers, a play icon will appear in your sticker picker. To see the animation, tap and hold the icon for a preview. If you like it, just tap again to add it to your chat and surprise your friend! (And then be prepared to tell them how you did that.)

Find What You Want: New Navigation Tabs

House Ads Chats _ Sticker Shop (English - Bahasa) - 480x320pxl-02Our newly redesigned shop adds tabs across the top of the main screen: New, Free, and Categories.

Previously, we only listed stickers in the order that we released them, with the most recent at the top. In this makeover, you can easily find the latest stickers on the New tab, in a list view instead of a grid.

The Free tab shows all our free stickers in one place. The Categories tab divides all our sticker packs by topic: BBM Family, Most Popular, Love & Romance, Animals & Pets, Movies, and more. If you’re looking for a specific sticker or topic, this is a great place to start.

See one you like? Just tap to preview the pack. Tap again to preview individual stickers.

How Much? Buy and Free Notation

House-Ads-Navigation-Menu-&-Sticker-Shop-(English)---480x320pxl-2As you’re browsing through all the sticker packs, you’ll notice the words “Buy,” “Free,” or “Downloaded” below each one. They tell you which stickers are available for purchase, which are free, and which ones you already have.

Be sure to update your BBM via Google Play or the App Store to enjoy all the improvements.

We hope you enjoy the updated Sticker Shop, and all the fun new stickers in it. We’re adding more all the time—including from our Sticker Factory contributors! (See a list of our first batch of winners here.) Be sure to check in often to get the latest.
