Is it possible to send messages to BBM Contacts without make invitation?

I review all documents and I found that I need to create blackberry.bbm.platform.io.Connection ("Session" or "Channel") and call "inviteContacts" then after the contact accept, we can call "connection.send(message)" to all contacts that are active in the connection. 

 

These are my questions. 

1. I am not sure is it possible to send messages directly to BBM Contacts without invite them before?

2. I don't see API to broadcast message to BBM Contacts without invite them before.

3. When I call "inviteContacts", it will open "Contact Dialog" and list only BBM Contacts that have already installed my application, is it possible to show all BBM Contacts?
