Here is a quick tutorial that will help you to get BBM on PC. Yes, using this guide you will be able to run and use BBM on laptop and desktop computers. There is no pricing involved in this process, so it’s totally FREE.
The BlackBerry Messenger application is no longer privileged to a BlackBerry smartphone. It was released for Android and iOS platforms last year and since then, it has managed to gain a decent level of popularity.
You can easily get it installed on the computer as well. Thanks to the Android app player software which are available easily. Earlier, there was no way of using BBM on computer because of which finding a crap method to do the trick was always the case.
I was always looking to somehow install BBM on laptop I own, but every process I used was pathetic and some hacking process was required, which, in fact, never worked.

To share a valid experience with you, I personally installed BBM on computer first. I am sharing my very own review with you in this part. If you want, you can skip it and directly move to the next installation section. But, if you can read it for a time, you will get to know the kind of experience you will have.
The very first thing I like is that I don’t have to face any issues while installing the application. I checked it on my Windows desktop and even on my MacBook Air, and it was working smoothly.
Creating an account is pretty simple and unlike WhatsApp, it doesn’t use the phone number. Rather, it creates a BBM PIN that you need to remember and share with your friends, whom you wish to get connected inside.
The UI is little complicated but after an hour of using, it’s easy to get used to. The app is still addictive because of elegant design and the kind of performance it delivers. Messages, images, videos, or any other file are delivered instantly as they are uploaded to the server. A server which never dies is part of the application.

The security features are top notch and untouchable by any other messaging applications. This is what you can expect from BlackBerry at its best. The application also allows making free voice calls and participate or manage a group of friends. The real good part was the way it creates our profile. Because, no one can find me unless I want them to.
Before you can begin with the process, there are set of instructions you need to be aware of. A requirement list which should be matched with the laptop or computer you own. This is how you will decrease the chances of finding any issues.
- The system should be having the operating system either Windows or Mac OS X. In case of Mac, the system shouldn’t be older than two years. While, in case of Windows, it should be running on Windows XP (Service Pack 3 only) or newer version OS.
- The system should be having at least 4GB RAM. This process will work in 2GB RAM as well, but then performance will not be that smooth.
- The graphic driver should be latest and updated to be compatible with HD standard of media content. If the system has a dedicated video card, then nothing gets better than this. The display added to the system should be having HD or higher resolution.
- There should be enough storage left in C Drive. Always keep at least 10GB free so that the system can work without any issues.

How to Download BBM for PC/Laptop
It doesn’t matter whether you own a Windows or Mac laptop or desktop, this method is going to work for you. Because of slight differences between the installation process on Windows and Mac platforms, the initial part is slightly different but later, it is all same.

Step 2 – Once you have the BlueStacks downloaded for your individual Mac or Windows system, then begin installing it. I have already shared a complete installation and related guides covering both Windows and Mac platforms. You can proceed on your own as well because the process is just like any other software.

Step 4 – After that, enter ‘BBM’ as a search term and click the link you find in search results that will take you to Google play store.
Step 5 – Before the Play store can be opened, a pop-up will occur asking you to establish the synchronization feature of the Play store and this App Player. Of course, you need to use only a Google account.
Step 6 – Since login part is over, so you gain access to Google’s ecosystem of applications. Now, the BBM app will open in search results of the play store.
Step 7 – Click on the appropriate app in the search result and finally click on install option ahead of it’s listing. This will begin downloading BBM and will be installed within a minute.
The process is over from your side and as any app gets installed on its own at an Android device, BBM will be installed on its own. Once it does, a notification will appear on your desktop screen.
