Default Blackberry Messenger Displays Music Contacts Listen To ..

Please Login to Remove!

A contact on my Blackberry Messenger list.. it shows what song he's listening to. It comes up under recent updates. Shows a music note & the name of the song. I tried to figure it out, but can't. I know there is an option that allows contacts to see music updates. I have it checked, but I don't think it's working. How does this work? Do I need a certain program or something?

I don't think you heard me.

In order for you to display music that you are listening to your contacts, you need to have a device that is running Operating Software version 5.0 or greater.

I heard you, but apparently I have the up-to-date version. There is no new updates.

Yes....the version you have is up-to-date. But not the version that allows you to do what you want to do.

Actually, you could do this with the Bold running 4.6 and BBM 4 (or whatever it was called). It was the option called "Allow now playing presence status."
