BlackBerry Hub now available to Download On Playstore
BlackBerry is wading into the Android software pool. The once-dominant smartphone company announced its BlackBerry Hub+ service is now available for all Android phones.BlackBerry Hub is part of BlackBerry Hub+, a suite of applications that gathers all of your communications and scheduling notifications into a central dashboard for easy access to emails, calendar notifications, social media, and productivity apps like Slack.
You’ll then need to agree to several permissions for the Hub to access your notifications and various accounts. Once this is done you have one place where you can access notifications or launch a new email, text message, or social media post.
The app is free to try for 30 days, and will cost you $0.99 per month afterwards. The promise of a centralized hub is grand and all, but it remains to be seen if people want to pay for it, even if it’s only going to set you back $12 per year.
The BlackBerry Hub app is currently available only for Android 6 Marshmallow devices. Support for Android 5 Lollipop is on the way and for only only BlackBerry users
