  1. BBM just got better. With BlackBerry 10, we’ve taken BBM to the next level to facilitate complex interactions and more effective communication. Screen Share is part of the BBM evolution, so remember that all of the traditional BBM perks – fast messaging, easy international commination, and so on – are part of the Screen Share experience.
  2. Simple navigation. Screen Share is intuitive on BBM for BlackBerry 10. When in a BBM video chat, simply tap the Screen Share icon to get started. And once you’re ready to stop sharing your screen, it’s just as easy to return to basic video chat while continuing conversation. Get started with Screen Share here.
  3. Easier to work on the go. With Screen Share you can share business documents from your BlackBerry 10 device the same way you’d share documents from your office computer. Share PowerPoint presentations while simultaneously conversing with coworkers over video chat.

  4. Deeper communication with friends and family. Want to look at photos from a party while recounting the night with a family member? Screen Share allows you to share these experiences instantaneously.
  5. Real time engagement. BBM has always been a vehicle for real-time communication, and with Screen Share and other new BBM features, BlackBerry has taken messaging beyond real time chat and into real time engagement.
