BlackBerry Hub+ Arrives on Android


BlackBerry is opening its Hub+ productivity suite to all Android 6.0 Marshmallow users.

Hub is a unified inbox that allows you to compose email messages and social posts, respond directly to texts and calendar invites, snooze items, manage email folders, and search for messages.

Hub+ for Android should be familiar to BlackBerry 10 users. The same apps—like Calendar and Password Keeper—are built into the BB10 operating system, as well as BlackBerry's super-secure Priv and DTEK50 Android smartphones.

"An important initiative of the Mobility Solutions unit is a software strategy that combines BlackBerry's strength in security, engineering savvy, and device experience," COO Ralph Pini said in a statement. "The result—the ability to extend the best of BlackBerry's secure communications and productivity features to any Android M consumer, enterprise or government customer."

Download a 30-day trial of BlackBerry Hub+ from Google Play; after one month, users can opt for the free, ad-based experience, or subscribe to the entire suite for 99 cents per month.

BlackBerry is exploring ways to expand access to those running Android 5.0 Lollipop (no word on 7.0 Nougat), as well as iOS device owners.

"Bottom line: Expect to see us bring more similar software offerings to enterprise and individual customers soon," Eric Lai, director of content marketing at BlackBerry, wrote in a blog post.

Last week, the manufacturer announced its second Android smartphone, the DTEK50. Successor to the Priv, DTEK50 runs Marshmallow on a secure platform, and is now available to pre-order.
