BlackBerry MessengerResearch In Motion on Tuesday launched version 6.2.0.44 of its popular BBM service, which introduces a slew of welcome additions. An update notification should show up on your device shortly if it hasn’t already; if not, the download is also available in BlackBerry App World.

Here’s the full list of fixes and additions for the latest version of BBM.

  • Enjoy a new selection of Animated Avatars
  • Send voice notes more easily back and forth – streamlined voice notes allow you to set your convenience key to BBM, highlight a contact (or while in a chat), press the key, record and send.
  • Simpler way to change your Name and Personal Message – click on profile and start updating inline.
  • Tagging is now even quicker – BlackBerry Tag enhancement allows for automatic invitations and accepting within BBM.
  • Improved Contact Search – search will ignore special characters and emoticons to pull up all relevant contacts.
