It looks like it has taken BlackBerry more than a week to iron out all the technical issues it was hit with since the botched launch of BBM for iOS.

The Canadian company did not even have the chance to launch BBM for Android due to a leaked version of the application that was affected by a nasty bug, which stressed its servers more than it should.

However, it appears that a new version of BBM for Android is now being tested, CrackBerry claims. BlackBerry fixed most of the bugs in the previous versions and is now sending the application to select few for beta testing.

The new beta of BBM for Android features some tweaks and visual changes, such as a new welcome screen, the option to disable the persistent notification in the status bar, as well as some UI graphical improvements.

Unfortunately, there's no telling when exactly the new BBM for Android will be released for the general public, but it shouldn't take more than a couple of days to complete the tests. Stay tuned for more on this.
