BlackBerry Hub update brings Dark Theme, support for WeChat and Line notifications

With more than 500,000 downloads in the Google Play Store, BlackBerry Hub is one of the most popular communication organizers for Android devices. It's a great tool that provides users with a unified inbox where they can check their messages, email, calendar, social or phone calls.

The latest BlackBerry Hub adds a plethora of new features and enhancements, such as the new Dark Theme that can be enabled inside the app, as well as support for .msg attachments.

BlackBerry also brought back “attachment view,” so Hub users will now be able to enable a separate view that shows attachments only. According to BlackBerry, the newly added feature even displays attachments that have not yet been downloaded.

As the title says, support for WeChat and Line notifications has also been implemented, along with filling improvements. The latter is meant to show improved suggestions when filing emails based on most frequently used folders.

The update also brings some security improvements such as enhanced S/MIME details and attachment support, as well as FIPS-validated S/MIME for BlackBerry Android.

If you don't own a BlackBerry, you will be able to use the Hub for free for 30 days, after which ads will be displayed within the app. In order to remove them, you will have to subscribe to BlackBerry Hub+ from the app.

They still can't make it as good as the OS10 version. Keep trying, you'll get there someday.

Dark theme is a welcome addition to the Hub, but I agree with Crispin, the Hub on BB10 is still better.

Dark theme Hub is nice. I still like white theme better. It look better than dark Hub right now. I hope that change soon.

I thought they had one in the newest ios update or was that something else?

I'm on 10.2.1 on my 6S+ and I don't see anywhere in settings where to change the theme. As far as I know, only the LG G5 and all Windows phones have dark theme out of the box. Oh, and the Z30 since it's an AMOLED screen.

Yeah, I'm on the same on my iPad Pro, and there is nowhere in the settings to change the theme.

Mine either MG, Apple black iPhones look dope, and a dark theme would only add to it.

How is 10.2.1? I heard it had a few issues, so I held off on updating to it.

No issues I can see. Battery is good so far. The only issue I've had was the phone freezing on me but that was at 35,000' using GoGo to call my wife. The ONLY wifi calling app I was able to use was BBM. Skype froze, Whatsapp is a waste of time and the native phone app froze. Home button+power to the rescue!

Should I update, or wait for 10.3?

Depends on how long before 10.3 arrives. If you're happy with 10.2 and the changelog doesn't reveal anything that appeals to you, stay put. I know many here who like to be on the latest and greatest but that isn't always the case.

Nice to see someone with an actual iDevice who knows what they are talking about and isn't crying issues all the time.

20. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Some other people claim to have an iOS device, but we all know that to be a work of fiction like the National Inquirer. They try to act like they know what they are talking about when they don't in actuality. They're jealous because other users are far more respectful and level headed than they are.

Insert Android device, and you're clearly talking about yourself. I already posted a link to my iPad Pro, or did you forget? Let me remind you:https://imgur.com/gallery/mMRbI And it's not some photoshopped BS like you posted, either. You're also seething because others here post stuff from actual experience, while you willfully post comments out of pure ignorance, something that you've already admitted to.

22. Mxyzptlk unregistered

A photoshopped pic. You don't own an iPad, so stop it Pinocchio. Oh get over it. You're just seething because you can't take a dose of your own medicine. I have experience as well, so get over it.

I do, and anyone that looks at the pic will see that it's the real deal. You, on the other hand, are too afraid to post that photoshopped BS again for all to see, and have never ever used BB10 or BlackBerry Android devices. You even admitted that, but are most likely too stupid to remember it, you're just lying about it, like you're lying about owning a Nexus 6. Everyone knows this, so get over your lies and BS.

24. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I'm not afraid of anything. I'm not going to waste my time providing another pic if you're just going to dismiss it. You're just bumburned about me not being just an iOS user. Get over it. And for the record, I never said I owned a Nexus 6.

25. meanestgenius

Of course you are, coward. That's why you're making excuses for not posting that photoshopped BS again. Everyone here knows that you're just an iOS user, as you're blinded by the RDF that Apple produces. Put up or shut up. Post a link showing your ACTUAL Nexus 6P, or just admit to your lies and BS.

26. Mxyzptlk unregistered

I gave you a link that showed my actual 6p and you dismissed it. Now you're backtracking because I called you out on your lie saying I owned a Nexus 6. You're in denial.

27. meanestgenius

Posts: 21778; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lol, you produced a photoshopped link that proved absolutely nothing, which is why you won't post it again, because you know that you're lying about it and are in denial about ever owning a Nexus 6P.

Nice to see someone with an actual iOS device that's aware of the issues on iOS and doesn't just blindly update or constantly deflect from the fact that there are issues with iOS.

I haven't seen it. My 7 Plus is on 10.2.

17. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Must have been something else on the display unit in best buy. The colors were dark pinkish.

Totally agree. They definitely need one on iOS.

I imagine if and when they ever go to an AMOLED screen they might do it. Makes no sense on LCD unless you're willing to deal with so-so battery life. Nokias with Clear Black were an exception but Microsoft owns that tech as well.
