. BBM for Windows Phone is currently available as a private beta and the only way to get the app is to be invited. But right now, the program is full, which means that you need to get on a wait list. To get on the wait list, head over to the sourcelink and sign in. Eventually, BBM for Windows Phone will be made available to all users of the platform via a simple download from the Windows Phone Store.
Images from the Windows Phone version of BBM were revealed by BlackBerry on Thursday. Right off the bat you can tell that the messaging app will be using the Windows Phone UI, instead of the BlackBerry 10 UI used on the Android and iOS variants of the app.
