BBM for Windows Phone has undoubtedly been the most neglected out of all four major mobile operating systems that BBM supports. While the UI looked pretty slick from the beginning, the lack of many key features like BBM Voice, and Channels made that experience pretty subpar. Thankfully, the BBM dev team has made up one of its Windows Phone deficiencies with a new beta launched today. BBM for Windows beta users will finally have access to BBM Channels!

In this build, testers will have these features to look forward to:

  • Channels Pivot on the Home Page
  • Channels Hub
  • Channels Details
  • Invite to Channel option
  • Channel Profile
  • My Channel
  • Channel Post details
  • …and more Channels features!

If you’re a tester for BBM for Windows Phone, check your email, and update BBM to get started with Channels!
