What does BIAM stand for?

Back in a minute

When you get a message that says BIAM, it’s the sender’s way of letting you know that they’ll be back shortly. They’re stepping away from their computer or device for a bit, maybe to check on something or to take a quick bathroom break.

Often, this slang is used during an ongoing conversation that has been interrupted. It’s a brief, convenient way of saying, “Hold on, I’ll be right back.” It’s like a virtual placeholder in your chat.

When the person who sent you BIAM comes back, you can welcome them back with WB, short for “Welcome Back”. Then, you can pick up where you left off in your conversation, which was of course super important!

Example for using ‘BIAM’ in a conversation

Hey! Can you help me with something real quick?

Sure, what do you need?

I need to know the recipe for your famous spaghetti sauce. Can you send it to me?

BIAM, let me grab it from the kitchen. Back in a minute!

No problem, take your time. 😊

Thanks! WB! Here’s the recipe: 🍝

Awesome! Thanks a bunch! I’ll give it a try tonight.

You’re welcome! Let me know how it turns out. Enjoy! πŸ˜„
