BES12 enhanced with Android for Work, Samsung KNOX support

For those Android users who are not familiar with BlackBerry's BES12, it's an enterprise mobility solution that can be used in businesses and workplaces. This platform brings BES5 and BES10 in one place for easier mobile management. It's a paid program that's being used by some companies since the latter part of 2014. A few months later, the Canadian smartphone pioneer updates BES 12 with support for Android Work and Samsung KNOX.

BlackBerry working on an Android Device, buys related domains

Stories of BlackBerry working on an Android device have been spreading around for some time now. We can consider them as rumors but here's one proof that could tell us what the Canadian smartphone pioneer is up to. The company reportedly bought the domains AndroidSecured.net and AndroidSecured.com only last July 7. These two were sighted as registered to BlackBerry Limited.

BBM adds private messages to its new subscription service

Blackberry's BBM service has continued to be its "prime product" as they constantly update it with new features that would appeal to those who rely on messaging services to communicate with colleagues and loved ones. What differentiates them though is that they have subscription services for those who would like a little more than what the free messaging services offer. The latest one includes a new Private Chat feature that will "protect" you and your chatmate since there are no names involved.

Blackberry and Samsung reportedly teaming up for an Android smartphone

If a certain Russian blogger is to be believed, Android powerhouse Samsung will be teaming up with struggling Blackberry and they will be producing an Android smartphone that will have BB services (which some people are still dependent on/loyal to). This rumor comes days after another report that the next Blackberry phone will not be running on the much discussed Blackberry OS but rather on the more ubiquitous Android platform.

BlackBerry might use Android OS on new devices

We always knew this would happen: BlackBerry running Android OS. Android apps are now able to run on some BlackBerry devices but rumor has it that the Canada-based smartphone pioneer is making a big leap by jumping into the Android fence. BlackBerry 10 is just the start but once everything is finalized, expect more BlackBerry-manufactured devices to run the latest Android mobile OS.

BBM Beta shows off Material Design, message editing, private chats

It took them a while to catch up in terms of design, but at least Blackberry is getting there when it comes to its strongest remaining product to date. BBM (Blackberry Messenger if you didn't know yet) is finally getting a Material Design upgrade, as well as new features to "make it even better" for its more than a million users worldwide. The update however is still in its beta phase, so it might not still work perfectly as you would expect.

BBM timed messages, message retraction now on subscription

Blackberry may not be the most popular kid in the block, but it still commands a loyal following from a certain group of people, particularly for its Blackberry Messenger or BBM. The latest update to the messaging app may be a mixed bag for its users. The good news is that it brings a few new features, like better voice chat and better broadcast message options. The bad news is that some features that were previously free are now removed and instead, put in a subscription service.

Social gaming now available on your Blackberry Messenger

While Blackberry has taken a huge fall in recent years and has earned a rep for being a poster boy for failing in the age of digital and gadgets, they have been slowly trying to reinvent themselves, focusing more on software technology rather than creating more hardware. Their latest move is to introduce social gaming to BBM users through the BBM Connect Games for Android. This is following in the footsteps of other messaging apps also integrating games onto your normal, everyday chats.

BBM Protected now available for Android users through BBM app

BBM Protected is a product that Blackberry has been offering to enterprises to allow employees to chat without there being any danger of any corporate secrets leaking out, since a lot of messaging apps don't have reliable security. Previously, all the chat participants needed to be on a Blackberry and Blackberry Protect specifically, but now, you can also be on it, even if you are on an Android device.
