BlackBerry Priv Gets Android 6.0 Marshmallow Update



BlackBerry, the Canada-based smartphone maker has started to roll out a major software upgrade to its Android OS powered device, the Priv. Initially launched in the month of October last year, the first Android powered device from the brand was made available to its Indian audience in late January this year. The company is now rolling out Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to the device.

Though, only the users who have purchased the device from company’s official online store, ShopBlackBerry would be first receiving this major Android update. While the device purchased from carriers should start receiving this update from May 3, which is not far. The brand recommends that its users download this update over Wi-Fi, since, it is quite large in size, thus would need a stable internet connection for the file to be downloaded completely without any error.

For being the only BlackBerry handset and getting an Android, Marshmallow update is a big thing for the company. Since brand wants to stay alive in the competition; they had to roll out this update. And it’s good news for anyone using this handset. Apart from the significant jump in firmware version, you should notice some visual changes in the interface.

The brand started the beta program for this Android Marshmallow update about a month ago and now today successfully rolling out the final release. Currently, there are around 4% of Android smartphone in the world running on the Android 6.0 OS and the fact that Priv is one of them should make these BlackBerry device users proud.

With company’s focus on security, they have tried to leverage as much as on the system-level security enhancement provided by the Marshmallow version. That’s not it; the company has added several additional improvements to key product features. At the beginning of every month, Google releases a security update for Nexus devices as well discloses the security vulnerabilities. BlackBerry has tried to sort them out in this update. So, apart from Marshmallow love users would also get some security patches as well.
