Video shows BlackBerry Priv running Android 6.0
Since we haven't heard anything about the BlackBerry Priv receiving the update to Android 6.0, Priv owners should be happy to see the video clip that we've embedded with this story. It shows the first Android powered BlackBerry running Android 6.0.1. Unfortunately, we have no idea when this update would be sent out. In the U.S., it would be up to Verizon, T-Mobile and AT&T to give final approval to the update, and to schedule a day for it to start getting pushed out.

The update would give the Priv new features like Doze. which puts the phone into a deep sleep when inactive. Apps stop working in the background, and standby time is greatly improved. This should increase the battery life of the phone. The update also adds Google Now on Tap which brings contextual search, and gives you search results based on the content displayed on your phone. And with the update, users can give or deny permissions to apps on a feature-by-feature basis.

Hopefully for Priv owners, whether they are sporting the unlocked or carrier branded model of the device, they aren't waiting too much longer for Android 6.0 to arrive.
