BlackBerry have released an update to the BlackBerry Hub app for Android, bringing additional hub integrations for Skype Lite, Zalo, and KakaoTalk accounts.

The Search capability has been improved allowing users to quickly search all messages with the same sender or subject from the More Actions menu.

A new setting has been added where you can receive emails quicker when BlackBerry Hub is running in the background. The readability of wide tables in e-mail messages for the “Resize email to fit screen” setting, and improved readability of e-mail messages in Ukrainian language has also been improved.

The notification tray has reeived an enhancement and now remains open after tapping an action icon in a Hub notification, enabling you to triage multiple Hub notifications at a time.




Finally, for admins, S/MIME can now be configured to use LDAP for certificate lookup when used in a managed profile. Using app config in Hub+ Services, an admin can configure it such that Chrome in the work profile uses single sign-on. This allows their users to only enter their username/password once per session when navigating internal work sites using Chrome.

The BlackBerry Hub brings your communications into one place so you can manage your messages in one location. Connecting with your friends and colleagues has never been simpler. You can quickly organise and take action on emails, text and BBM messages, phone calls, social media notifications, calendar invitations and more – directly from your message list.

Once you experience the BlackBerry Hub, you’ll wonder how you lived without it.

Key Features:

  • Compose email messages and social posts, or respond directly to messages and calendar invitations
  • Use Conversation View for a clear view of all the messages in a conversation with the latest message always open for quick review
  • Snooze items so that you can view them at a later date, time or location
  • Quickly select recipients for email messages using suggested contacts. File email messages and manage all your folders
  • Search for messages or contacts saved directly on your device or on the email server
  • Peek into your calendar to see your next five meetings
  • Quickly identify unread messages via the red BlackBerry spark indicator

What’s New:

  • Additional Hub integrations: we now support Skype Lite, Zalo, and KakaoTalk accounts.
  • Improved Search capability: Quickly search all messages with the same sender or subject from the More Actions menu.
  • “Help Receive Emails Quicker”: With this newly-added setting, you can receive emails quicker when BlackBerry Hub is running in the background.
  • Other minor e-mail improvements: readability of wide tables in e-mail messages for the “Resize email to fit screen” setting, and improved readability of e-mail messages in Ukrainian language.
  • Notification enhancements: The notification tray remains open after tapping an action icon in a Hub notification, enabling you to triage multiple Hub notifications at a time.
  • Admin enhancements: S/MIME can now be configured to use LDAP for certificate lookup when used in a managed profile. Using app config in Hub+ Services, an admin can configure it such that Chrome in the work profile uses single sign-on. This allows their users to only enter their username/password once per session when navigating internal work sites using Chrome.
