    I just started using BBM and cannot figure out what is usually a very simple procedure. While in a BBM chat with someone, occasionally there is a picture or a message I want to delete. But I just can't figure out how. Intuitively I would think just long pressing a message or a picture would give you an option to delete it, but that's not the case with BBM. I don't want to delete the whole chat, just the occasional picture or message in that chat. How can I do this? Thanks for any help.

    It's coming, soon you will be able to retract messages.

    Thanks for replying. So this upcoming update only allows retracting messages and not pictures. Glad they're adding this, but it's odd such a basic feature is not there from the start. Too bad you still won't be able to delete pictures in a thread. Timed pictures still isn't the same as being able to delete any pic in a thread regardless of who sent the pic. I want to make BBM my main message app, but these shortcomings makes that difficult to do.

    My understanding is pictures are considered part of the message and can be retracted as well at least I would hope that is the case.

    Once they add these features, as well as video chat, and make the font slightly bigger, it'll be perfect.
