BlackBerry today announced a few new features BBM users can expect. Although it wouldn’t say when the new version would arrive, the company revealed BBM would soon support photo sharing in multi-person chats, larger file sizes, and bigger emoticons.

Up until now, BBM’s file sharing size limit was 6MB, but BlackBerry is increasing that limit to 16MB in the next release, so users can send bigger pictures, larger documents, and longer videos. BlackBerry didn’t detail much about the size of BBM’s emoticons, but claimed it was a change made “after feedback from you, our customers.”
