We got the news today that BBM Music was updated in BlackBerry Beta Zone today. The new version 1.0.0.124 brings a lot of new updates, and fixes. Below is the list of fixes, and updates that are included in this update, as well as an updated list of known issues with BBM Music.  Here’s the full change log below, or click here to download from Beta Zone.

General Improvements

  • Users with a reduced BlackBerry data plan can use BBM Music over Wi-Fi
  • Account and subscription information is now shown in Options
  • Trial length is now shown on first use of the application
  • Low memory warnings shown when there is not enough memory to cache songs or run application
  • SureType and virtual keyboard errors fixed
  • Updated text in all supported languages

Media Playback Improvements

  • Player now lets you click album art to play in more cases
  • Playback stability improved, especially on CDMA devices
  • Improved offline song playback on OS 5.0 devices
  • Improved long song playback on devices with low memory
  • Improved warnings about streaming over the mobile network
  • Reduced the delay when skipping songs
  • Faster opening of large playlists

Contacts Improvements

  • Easier sorting of songs
  • Faster loading of All Songs
  • Notification icons for comments and friend requests
  • Performance improvements to support larger numbers of contacts
  • URLs for email invites and sharing are now much shorter (recipient needs the new version of BBM Music)
  • PIN of the invitee is hidden when inviting user from BBM Music to BBM
  • BBM 6.0.1 beta users can now invite BBM contacts that don’t have BBM Music installed

Known Issues

  • Playback may not stop if Bluetooth is uncleanly disconnected
  • Refreshing screens can cause rendering issues on certain device resolutions
  • Saving playlists with many songs may result in delays
  • BBM Music email invite links are only actionable through Menus on certain device builds.
  • Connecting to BBM can cause delay at Step 2 of 4 requiring application restart
  • Email links sent will not open in older version of BBM Music
  • Prompts to download a newer BBM version will not work until BBM 6.0.1 is available

As you can see there is a lot of  changes in this version of BBM Music, one of my personal favorites is the fact that you can now invite contacts that don’t have BBM Music installed as long as you also have BBM 6.0.1 beta. You can pick up this update in Beta Zone.
