BlackBerry has announced that Voice, Channels, easier sharing, and new emoticons are coming to BBM for iPhone and Android.

We’ve been working on some new ways to make it faster and easier to share with your BBM contacts. Whether it’s talking with BBM Voice, connecting over a BBM Channel, sending a quick photo, or even sharing your location, there’s more to BBM than just chatting.

Here are the new features coming to the BBM app:

1. BBM Voice for iPhone and Android
Free voice calls to any BBM contact anywhere in the world! Just another way that BBM helps to bring you together with people when you can’t be there in person – without having to pay long distance charges.

2. BBM Channels for iPhone and Android
BBM Channels are a great way to join conversations happening with the BBM community beyond your contact list. By creating your own channel you can start conversations sparked by your thoughts, ideas and passions. Subscribing to a BBM channel lets you join conversations with others who share your interests.

3. Faster and easier sharing – from photos to voice notes, your location and more
BBM chats happen fast – so fast it’s like you’re there in the same room. Now you can share just about anything with that same speed. Share photos in a snap, send a voice note with just one touch and more. And get this, you can even share your location, live, for a limited time with any contact you choose. When the timer runs out your location is private again. Perfect for when you’re meeting up with friends, stuck in traffic or lost at a concert.

4. Lots of new emoticons
We’ve got loads of new emoticons to help you make your point. 100 new emoticons in all!

The new features are being beta tested now and will be released in the next couple months. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, or RSS for updates.
