BBM chat with a PC?

I've been asked if BlackBerry will be releasing a BBM chat client for PCs.  We tested out BBM chat and it seems pretty useful but it would be great to be able to include users who don't have a BB10 device in the chat.  Any chance of that in the future?

Re: BBM chat with a PC?

Nothing has been announced about a desktop BBM client, only a coming iOS and Android app.

Re: BBM chat with a PC?

You can use BBM Channels via a PC, but its not for chatting

 

There are some apps that your PC can control your device for BBM but dont think thats what you are looking for.

Do a bit of searching.

 

There is no BBM desktop and as of this moment, none has been announced. Period.
