    I have received a Pic where we can see the Read Mark is coming to Group Chat. I think BlackBerry Read the Post From Kevin :-).

    It was tweeted from the BBM twitter account, so hopefully its not a rumour.

    Would it show who in the group has read the message though, like Kevin mentioned? It'd be fairly useless if it's just universal as it gives no indication whether everybody or just one person has read the latest message in the group chat.

    The picture shows pretty much just a general R for read. Hopefully it shows who read it or at least how many people read it.

    I could write a few pages about things that need to be added to BBM. I really wish it was as functional as hangouts.

    It's taken from the BBM Twitter account and people are running with it as if it hasn't been posted like that previously. *rabblerabble*

    That "R" would be useless in a group chat. What exactly would that "R" represent? That somebody in the group read it? Everybody in the group read it? It's entirely too ambiguous to be meaningful in any way.

    They should do it like facebook groups, list the names that read it somehow

    I agree 110%. This is an easy thing to implement and would make soo much of a difference with overall usability

    Unless they're Vine-like videos that require next to no storage space, never going to happen.

    I'm hoping they'll eventually include a way to compress videos so they can be shared and take up minimal space. Wouldn't be hard to get it to >10mb if they compress it like they do with pictures.

    To answer your question:

    ^^^This is the only feasible way they'd implement video in-app. Basically, if it's in the group photo album (or even in the chat window itself, as far as I know), it'd require transmission through the NOC. Especially with pics already undergoing mandatory compression in BBM, videos - which are exponentially much larger in size - would essentially kill the BlackBerry servers with +80 million active users trying to transmit larger files all at once.

    I am seriously curious as to what those pages would contain.

    I use Google Hangouts myself on my computer mostly because I hate having to use my phone for instant messaging when I am on a computer, but I haven't tried Hangouts on mobile. What's it like?

    And I do not like that Google has direct access to my digital thoughts... even if I have 'save chat history' set to off.

    I mean, Facebook records everything you type, even when you type a new status post but decide to delete it, it's recorded. Would it be a wild guess to say that Google prolly does it too??
