Screen Rotation on BBM

Can I confirm if screen rotation works on BBM? I can't seem to get it to work on BBM this seems strange as one of BB usps is BBM which is all about messaging, why would it work for SMS and emails but not BBM? Please tell me I am wrong??

Please use plain text.

It doesn't.

 

Use of Portrait <> Landscape mode through out BlackBerry10 is uncertain and there are no real uniformities.

I'm hoping that sees some adjustments in a near update.

BBM rotates to landscape in the Hub only currently.  If you open BBM outside of the Hub it is locked to portrait.

And I hope that word "currently" is a hint looking forward to updates on this.

Re: Screen Rotation on BBM

I make extensive use of rotation lock, since once the screen rotates I find it difficult to rotate it back.

Re: Screen Rotation on BBM

Thanks for noting that it only rotates when starting in the Hub.  I was frustrated with it not rotating but noticed that it did rotate to landscape once, so knew it was possible but didn't see the pattern.  

Repeating the comment already noted, I hope this will get fixed soon.  I'm a big Blackberry fan and BBM user that just switched to the Z10.  I found this annoying until seeing this tip.

Re: Screen Rotation on BBM

Just to confirm, BBM is still portrait only when viewed from the BBM app.

Re: Screen Rotation on BBM

Yes, BBM on my Z10 will NOT rotate to landscape when entered direct from the BBM app, but WILL rotate to landscape when entered from the Hub.

Re: Screen Rotation on BBM

This did not get fixed with the 10.2 release on 28Jan2014.  Still need to go thru the Hub to get BBM to rotate to landscape.
