Messenger is available for all BlackBerry 10 devices and costs $1.99. Like I said it's slick app and runs fast. It's native and we should support developers continually bringing us great apps to use.
One thing to note is that Messenger doesn't support replying to group chats. This is due to Facebook API limitations. If this was currently possible the developer would have implemented it.
