After a stellar first 24 hours in the Windows Phone Store as a closed beta, BBM has now officially laucnhed its public beta release on Windows Phone.

“We’re excited to offer BBM to Windows Phone users! V1 focuses on bringing the speed, privacy and security of BBM – loved by millions around the world – to chatting and sharing through 1:1, multiperson and BBM Group chats. We’re already working hard on V2 where we’ll introduce additional features to BBM for Windows Phone.”

These “additional features” will likely be BBM Channelse, BBM Voice, and maybe even some features we’re not expecting.

BBM Beta includes the following features:

Chat with friends on Windows Phone, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry:
• Know when messages have been delivered (D’s) and read (R’s)
• Quickly share photos, voice notes, BBM contacts and your location
• See when contacts are responding to your message
• Emoticons for every mood and emotion let you express yourself

The new public beta can be downloaded via the WP Store.
