    Here's the proposal:

    At the top right in a group you place the standard green audio icon we see today for xBBM.

    Tapping it would start an audio conference. Everyone in the group would get a BBM prompt to join, and their icon would be a pulsing green until they joined. Then it would act like a standard conference bridge service where the group creator would be the moderator.

    Make this a premium feature, that the group creator can add-on, say for $1.99. This would open up features such as screen sharing, presenter selection, participant muting, etc.

    If BlackBerry added this to BBM it would really be a differentiator. I can see our company using this for our remote team meetings every day.

    Download Noted, my 5-star rated, native BB10 notepad app.

    I have been telling the beta zone people this for months now and hopefully they listen. It would be awesome, and i know it is probably difficult but if they could also have multi person video. If they charge like a dollar a year for these premium services, with a trail period of 30 days they can definitely pull it off. I can see the app being used a crap ton by lots of people. Just imagine multi video with the screen share ability...

    Great idea, but as said above, competitors would probably offer a fre alternative. So there has to be a deal-breaker that would make the people pay for the service.
