BlackBerry Hub+ Apps Update Available for Beta Users, Brings Improvements and Android 8.0+ Support


Just the other day we saw BlackBerry roll out an update for the BlackBerry Password Keeper that included Android 8.0+ support.  Well, it looks like BlackBerry has also decided to bring support to the other apps in the BlackBerry Hub+ apps at least to beta users.  Updates are available for the BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Hub+ Services, Notes by BlackBerry, Tasks by BlackBerry, and the BlackBerry Launcher.


BlackBerry Hub

  • For administrators: BlackBerry Hub’s userAgent has now changed to Android on all devices, including BlackBerry devices
  • Improved performance on devices running Android version 8.0 or later
  • Choose to include sent messages when you file an email conversation

BlackBerry Hub+ Services

  • No longer requests access to your location when you install BlackBerry Hub+ Services
  • Minor enhancements and stability fixes

Notes by BlackBerry

  • Create a new note by typing a title in the search field

Tasks by BlackBerry

  • Create a new note by typing a title in the search field

BlackBerry Launcher

  • Bug fixes and minor enhancements

Now again these are all beta updates so they will only be available to those who are part of the BlackBerry Hub+ Beta program.  It is nice to see BlackBerry getting everything ready for Android 8.0+ to come to BlackBerry Android devices, as it should mean we are getting close to seeing it!
