Now, where’s that Oreo update for the U.S.?
In mid-July, BlackBerry announced it was running an invite-only Android Oreo beta for the KEYone to trial the software update before rolling it out to all users. Starting today, August 15, that update is finally being released to all KEyone owners in Canada.
The Oreo update will start rolling out around 9:00 AM ET, and if you don’t get a notification for it, you can always manually check for the update by going to Settings -> System -> System Updates.
All of the features we’ve come to know and love from Oreo are here, including picture-in-picture, Google’s Autofill API for easier password entry, adaptive icons, and more.
Oreo’s taste might seem a bit stale at this point considering that Android Pie is already rolling out to certain handsets, but even so, a software update is still a software update.
