BlackBerry brings Hub+ to Android smartphones, Report

BlackBerry is slowly creeping its way into the Android ecosystem one step at a time. The BlackBerry Priv was their high-end offering last year and it met with mixed reactions. Last month they introduced the BlackBerry DTEK50, an affordable Android smartphone that might meet with a better reception. Now the company is making their BlackBerry Hub+ services available to Android Marshmallow devices through the Play Store.

For those not in the know, BlackBerry Hub is essentially a quality-of-life tool that brings your email, messages, and social media notifications together in one place. It’s meant to help you streamline your communications by putting as much as possible into one unified inbox, allowing you to view notifications and respond to new emails and SMS messages without having to jump from app to app.

The Hub is coming to Android via an app called BlackBerry Hub+ Services, and it’ll be free to try for the first 30 days. Once the trial is over, users who want to continue using it have the option of using a free, ad-supported version, or paying a subscription fee of 99 cents per month. While Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, and the company’s password manager are included in Hub+ Services, opting to subscribe will net you more BlackBerry features, including Contacts, Notes, Device Search, and Tasks.

The trial will be going live on the Google Play store today, so if you don’t see it yet (I didn’t), check back in a little while. For the time being, it’ll only be available for Android users running Marshmallow, though BlackBerry says it’s working on support for Lollipop and trying to find a way to get it onto iOS.
