BlackBerry opens up sign-ups for BBM beta app on Windows Phone
BBM is coming to Windows Phone very soon, but before that happens you're going to want to join an upcoming beta to try it out. BlackBerry has just announced that a BBM app built just for Windows Phone will be here in the coming weeks. Details on how to join the beta down below.
BlackBerry has designed their upcoming app to have a native user experience that embraces the clean, modern design of Windows Phone. There are three areas core to the BBM experience that you'll find in this app: Contacts, Chats and Feeds.
Contacts is a single list where you'll be able to view all BBM contacts (individuals and groups). Chats is the single destination for all BBM Chats including group chats, multi-person chats and one-to-one BBM Chats. Feeds is where you'll see what all your BBM Contacts are up to. Status updates and profile photo changes can be viewed here.
We just signed up for the beta and hope to do a hands-on when we get in. How about you? Looking forward to BBM on Windows Phone?

Hooray for Windows Phone. Posted via the WPC App for Android from my Z10
PS: Are you using your windows phone to do this?
We are all excited as you of course 1. Use PC because Blackberry Beta website is not supported in Internet Explorer
2. Sign up a Blackberry account or sign in I you have one
3. Sign up in blackberry beta zone or sign in if you're already signed up
4. Put your phone infos
Look you have to signup twice.
1: To get BlackBerry ID.
2: To get access to BBM BETA. You can do the first one on WP, but not the second one because it is broken on WP (Stupidity -_-).
Most of the people here have done the step 1 but not 2, and they think they are enrolled into BETA lol
Btw go to PC it will work just fine (or try UC Browser speed mode +iPhone Website preference).
Personally not gonna singup for BETA, cause the process is shitty.
I still can't
at least the good news is not BlackBerry skin extract :v
You will be notified when blackberry beta zone becomes available in your country..
Then wait for the approval
I also got the same response...
I guess that when we gave them our market email/id they will whitelist our accounts in order to be eligible for beta download...
Don't forget to give us your reviews
but its only register
lets wait when we can able to download BBM from store......
We want it in the coming days :(
Incase you have an alternate mobile which runs other OS apart from WP can do the job.
Even am from India.
And also they don't like whatscrap anymore.....
But it's new for windows phone users
I assume it was really good back then and everyone signed up so seeing it rise again makes people happy. Understood! I might give it a try then :)
I sign up but can't able to download from the store or no download link on webpage after i sign in
No news about it.
I literally search for it every hour.
Guys any idea about it?
And the most awaited feature is the brightness slider!
It was simply purchased from a shop and is not related to any carrier. :/
I want the official one cause I feel this is affecting my battery.
Its just a preview not meant for daily use :/
Hmm yeah !
Can we expect something today since its Friday?
Their favourite day to launch updates :P
India was supposed to get update this week.
But still cant download the app?
Edit: Okay I get it now, have to wait for 3 days
This basically refers to preparing a whitelist.
When it will available to all...any news guys.!
Please??? Im waiting?...
