BlackBerry Priv getting Android Marshmallow Beta today

BlackBerry Priv

The #BlackBerryPriv smartphone is today getting the #Android #Marshmallow Beta update, just as the company promised. However, only a select few users are seemingly getting the update as of now, but a wider beta rollout is expected to commence shortly. With this beta update, the company can ascertain the bugs and issues that there might be with an early release update and iron them out before the public release.

You will have to sign up for BlackBerry’s beta program to be eligible for the update, so don’t expect an update on your Priv out of the blue. The Priv is one of the most versatile devices to come out of BlackBerry’s sheds and is the company’s first Android offering, so there’s a lot riding on this for the company.

While it’s already too late for Marshmallow to be hitting devices, users of the Priv will be quite pleased to know that BlackBerry is hard at work to bring it to the device.
