That’s why, just in time for the holidays, we’re delivering some great gifts for our Android users, with enhancements to Hub+, the BlackBerry Keyboard, and the BlackBerry Launcher. In addition to fine-tuning our software to improve performance and eliminate bugs, we’ve added a bunch of features we’re sure you’ll love.
Here’s an overview of what’s under the tree with December’s Android software updates for your PRIV, DTEK50, or DTEK60.
BlackBerry Hub+ Apps
Accounts Improvements: It’s easier than ever to stay organized! You can now choose to hide specific accounts from Hub and Contacts and stop them from synchronizing. You can also set a default email account in the Hub for sending.
A Better Hub at a Glance: Create a custom view for emails that can be personalized to multiple, specific contacts and show contact avatars in Hub email notifications.
Tasks Improvements: Completed tasks can now be hidden.
More Attachments: .eml email attachments are now viewable.
BlackBerry Android Keyboard
Switching Languages: Enjoy visual enhancements and quicker response when you switch languages.
Expanded Chinese Input: Our keyboard now supports Chinese input methods like Stoke and Zhuyin!
Fingerprint support: If you are using password autofill, you can use your fingerprint on supported phones, including DTEK60, to unlock Password Keeper for faster access.
Dark Theme: Give your launcher a sleeker, sexier look! Dark Theme makes the background of the “All Apps” grid black instead of white.
Tap the icon on the left side of the search bar, then select “My apps & games” from the menu that pops up.
Either tap “Update All” or select which apps to update on an individual basis.
Tap “Download” and the update will begin, even if you don’t see a progress bar or another indicator.
