BBM Group Chat

For those in the know about BBM my question is:

1. Group chat started, 5 people involved
2. A 6th person is invited to join by one of the original group members without the other members knowledge.
3. Does this new member have access to all the previous messages?

Re: BBM Group Chat

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Yes -- within the time frame of saved messages, which is controlled within the configuration settings of the group itself. BBM is peer-to-peer, so when a new member joins (which, btw, the other members actually should receive an automatic notification of), their group chat is populated from the other members devices, using the timeframe setting for the group.

Good luck!
