BlackBerry Starts Taking Applications For The Priv Marshmallow Beta ProgramBy cheatmaster 03:58 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments
As rumored last week, BlackBerry has today started taking applications for a recent Beta Program for the Priv's Marshmallow update. Essentially this means that you can sign up to beta test the Android 6.0 Marshmallow software for the Priv before it goes out to everyone who owns the Canadian smartphone maker's first Android device. You'll then receive an over-the-air update with the beta build.
The sign-up page is here. People will be accepted into the program in batches, and it looks like the first one has already been filled. You can however put yourself on the waiting list, and when a recent batch of testers are let in you'll hopefully be among them. Registrations will be open for about two weeks.
The final release of Marshmallow for the Priv should create its way to handsets across the world either in late April or in early May. If you're accepted into the beta test, you can report bugs through an integrated app that's in the firmware for just that purpose. We assume that those who beta test will also acquire the over-the-air update to the final Marshmallow build when that is out, but that hasn't been made clear by BlackBerry at this point.
