BlackBerry brings its suite of apps to all Android Marshmallow users

BlackBerry Priv

BlackBerry’s array of apps and services is nothing to scoff at, especially for business and enterprise users.

We’ve already seen its Android apps leaking online though, but now the company is making it official with the release of BlackBerry Hub+.

“BlackBerry Hub+ for Android is a new suite of apps that should be familiar to any BlackBerry 10 user. It helps centralise all of the user’s communications into a single, unified interface, as well as help streamline many other productivity tasks such as Calendaring, Passwords, and many others,” the company explained in a blog post.

The suite is available as a 30-day trial, along with three apps (Hub, Calendar and Password Keeper). Once the trial is over, users can either opt for a free ad-supported version or pay R10.99 a month for the full suite of apps with no ads.

The full suite comes with BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, Password Keeper, Contacts, Tasks, Device Search, Notes and the stock-inspired BlackBerry Launcher.

The company said BlackBerry Hub+ will only be available for Android 6.0 Marshmallow devices for now.

“We’re looking to expand access to Hub+ to customers running Android 5.0 Lollipop, and also investigating how best to deliver the BlackBerry experience on iOS devices, too. Bottom line: Expect to see us bring more similar software offerings to enterprise and individual customers soon.”

The BlackBerry Hub+ suite is available from the Google Play Store.
