We didn’t hear any Black Friday deal from BlackBerry but since holidays are coming soon, the Canadian smartphone pioneer has just announced the latest software update. Well, it’s not really a holiday promo (not yet) but the holiday update is good enough to be considered as a special gift. The BlackBerry Android phones namely the PRIV, DTEK60, and DTEK50 are ready to receive some improvements to the BlackBerry Launcher,BlackBerry Keyboard, and the Hub+.
New features include the Password Font and a non-Latin character support. There’s also the Dark Theme now that offers a sleeker look. The Password Keeper allows autofill enhancement, open web pages directly, and now supports non-Latin characters and Chinese.
On the BlackBerry Hub+ Apps, you can now hide specific accounts and stop synchronizing. Setting a default email for sending is also now possible. Feel free to personalize your hub, hide completed tasks, or view .eml email attachments.
Updates to the BlackBerry Keyboard include fingerprint support and extended support for Chinese language. Switching languages is quicker and more responsive now while the visuals of the keyboard have been enhanced.
Over-the-air(OTA) notifications should be received as soon as the new version reaches Google Play. You can always check manually though by going to My apps & game and then choose ‘Update All’ or ‘Download’.
