    Can you guys who are lucky enough to be in the BBM beta programme make a request for "unread messages indicator" within a BBM group chat thread?

    Its a function which allows you to follow a thread from where you last read because a group chat can go on without you.

    Right now what happens in a BBM group what is that it scrolls down all the way to the last message sent and then you have to scroll up yourself to find where you left off.

    Whatsapp and ever other IM app ive used have this feature.

    It annoys the hell out of me that BBM doesnt.

    Ah okay. When I read your thread title, I thought you were asking about an indicator for which Group Chat comments other BBM Group members had read.

    So you're looking for an option in BBM like:
    On Opening Chat: Last Unread / Newest Message

    Agree, it would be a nice idea. Or just some easy way to jump back up to last unread if it does open at end first.

    Good idea, one of the things we all still love from WhatsApp in a BBM group we have migrated

    Within my group of friends we have a BBM and whatsapp group running concurrently.

    For group features whatsapp still has it.

    Location, video, file, the feature I mentioned above and messaging/notification reliability, all in whatsapp's favour.

    So can crackberry BBM beta testers kindly submit this small but important change?

    Yep, one of the main reasons I only have 1 BBM group and about 5 WhatsApp ones. WhatsApp just excels at group chat atm
