BlackBerry rolls out major update for its Android smartphones


BlackBerry recently announced a new update for all its present and upcoming Android smartphones would soon be available for download. The update is meant to improve some of the productivity features these handsets have pre-loaded inside.

The Canadian company completely overhauled the Productivity Tab's interface so that it's more user-friendly and easier to use. In addition, the update brings a new Quick Triage function that is meant for items in the Hub and new Quick Actions for entries in Contacts, including Phone, Text and Email.

Keep in mind that the update will be available through the Google Play Store, so you should receive a notification when it's available for download.

The following smartphones are currently eligible for the new update: BlackBerry PRIV, BlackBerry DTEK50 and BlackBerry DTEK60. However, Android users who appreciated productivity above all else, but don't own one of BlackBerry's smartphones, might be getting the update as well.

BlackBerry said the users on other Android devices should “stay tuned” as the update will be available for them too, in the not so distant future.
