    New BBM closed beta-img_20140508_223923.png

    It looks like there is a new BBM beta showing up BUT the annoying and stupid thing is it's still a closed beta for some unknown reason!

    Whatsapp has an open beta for our BlackBerry phones and BBM which is made by BlackBerry doesn't give us an open beta, I seriously need a good explanation for this happening!!

    Same feelings here exactly. We have better support and communication from whats app devs here on crackberry than we get for BBM. Sad

    Don't get too excited! There might be valid reasons for this. The last BBM beta was closed too btw.

    BB has plenty of open betas and has gone out of their way to have beta programs at all, from Beta Zone and its app to their new icanmakeitbetter.com site.

    There might be valid technical reasons why the beta is closed. Or maybe they've only chosen BZ members who have previously supplied the most useful feedback via BZ Discussions and/or surveys so that they can have the quickest turnaround to a public release.

    Feel free to ask the Twitter accounts for BB & BB BZ why it's closed. Just no need to jump to conclusions...

    Hi,

    You all on Q10 that do not get this BBM Beta should be happy. Because is has a little bug but quite annoying.
    While you are typing in BBM, it could suddenly lost focus on the chat input. You have to press enter once for it to return the focus back to chat input.
    And every time you send a chat, the cursor also lost focus, you have to press enter once again to going back in the chat input.
    i have reporting this issue on BB Betazone forum. Hope they can come out with the fix soon.

    But over all experience has been improve, opening channel quite fast and the picture in channel load faster. Stickers also feel slightly faster.

    Regards,

    BBM in Beta Zone has consistently only been available to the same random users for every new beta zone release. I do not know why people don't understand this and get up in arms with every new release when they are not able to download it.

    I assume you're one of those random users that get it, right? Because I don't see that normal in any way.

    Whether it is normal or not, it is how they have approached the BBM Beta from the beginning and thus should not be a surprise to anyone when each Beta is limited to the same group that it has been available to all along.
