BlackBerry updates

Just as it promised, BlackBerry is launching updates for its software and hardware offerings on a regular basis. Other than launching the BlackBerry Aurora in Indonesia and BlackBerry KEYone, it has introduced the BlackBerry Notable as well as the new Privacy Shade as well. This new app allows BlackBerry users to read personal messages, emails, and other content with maximum privacy.


BlackBerry Private Shade hides portions of the screen that are not being viewed actively. It conceals information you don’t want others to view even if they are looking over your shoulder so you are free to look at the screen even if you are around people.

You can access Privacy Shade via a number of different ways such as in the Quick Settings, from a Convenience Key, as a Swipe Shortcut, or when you toggle BlackBerry Privacy Shade on or off. The aim of this app is in line with BlackBerry’s main belief that is to secure data with software regardless if it’s personal or enterprise.

There are other updates from BlackBerry too that include extra Hub integrations for Kik and Telegram, Dual SIM support, Email Auto CC/BCC Setting, OS Integrity Check on DTEK, Android Wear Notifications (beta), Hub items via Android Wear devices Contact Linking as well as Cleanup.
