Get in on the BlackBerry Priv Marshmallow Beta Now!

 As I am writhing this article we have some sad news… The BlackBerry Priv Android 6.0 Marshmallow beta is full… You can still sign up on a waiting list should BlackBerry open more spots, so that is a good thing. Keep in mind that the OS is in BETA and not an official release, so there could be bugs.

The Android OS by BlackBerry beta program explores the stability, performance, and experience of running the latest Android releases from BlackBerry on Android-powered BlackBerry smartphones.

Participants are expected to follow instructions to enable background diagnostic reporting so engineering teams at BlackBerry can analyze collected data in aggregate and make improvements where necessary. The BlackBerry Bug Reporter for Android is also available, so participants can submit detailed bug reports for specific issue areas they encounter.

Though no interruptions to the use of a device with beta software are expected, participants should be fault-tolerant.

Membership space in the program is limited; registrants will be invited in batches over time to slowly grow the program.

Head on over to the BlackBerry Beta Zone to register.
