A recorded message can be played back in augmented reality by framing BB-8 in your device's camera. Sadly, these messages can only be viewed on the same device that recorded them.

As you continue to interact with BB-8, its interactions and attitudes will evolve. You can also train it to respond to voice commands.

At high speeds, BB-8's head does tend to slip down its body, righting itself when the ball slows down or stops.
