You might be finding BBM Pins everywhere around the social networks. The main reason being BBM the Premium Messenger of Blackberry is now available for all android users for download. More than 10 million users have already downloaded this app within 24 hours of its release.
So now you don’t require a Blackberry nor do you need to activate any plan to use this amazing messenger. All you need is an Android Phone with an Internet Connection. This step might move all the Blackberry users to Android Phones.
You can install and run any Android App on PC using Bluestacks; I have explained the same in my earlier articles like WeChat for PC and Whatsapp on PC. It is very easy to install any android application on PC using an emulator called Bluestacks. Now you might have tried the same with BBM but might be unsuccessful. Yes if you are trying to install BBM App on PC using Bluestacks then it won’t work.
Installation of Android BBM App on PC using Bluestacks fails
I was trying to install BBM Messenger on my PC today using Bluestacks but I was unable to do it. I followed all the procedures mentioned above in my earlier articles but still was unsuccessful. After searching BBM App through play store option in Bluestacks I found an error saying that “Your device isn’t compatible with this version”. You can see the snapshot below –
So I tried to download BBM Messenger using other Bluestacks options. This application gets downloaded but won’t get installed nor will it appear in app menu. So I tried to Google around to know the exact reason for the same.
Why can’t we install BBM Android App on PC?
After going through the entire details of BBM App and its requirement; I came to know that BBM requires Android 4+ versions.
Since Bluestacks uses Android 2.3.4; BBM won’t run on Bluestacks. You will face similar problem if you are using Android Phone with lower android version. In such case you won’t find BBM app on Play store. So if you can’t find BBM App on play store then it means that your device is not compatible or your Android version is below 4.
Fix to Run BBM on PC
We don’t have any official fix at the moment instead we will have to wait for Bluestacks to get upgraded. BBM is rocking at the moment and it is not compatible with Bluestacks current version; so we can expect an up gradation in Bluestacks pretty soon.
We can expect a fix soon; so once we have it available I will update this section again with the solution. So stay tuned or subscribe to Justclickin.
