PrivBlackBerry said Priv owners can expect to see the Android 6.0 Marshmallow system update hit their devices in the days ahead.

BlackBerry has been testing Marshmallow on the Priv for a couple of weeks. In addition to all the usual Marshmallow trappings, the update brings with it 200 new emoji, more keyboard gestures, and enhanced word prediction.

BlackBerry took steps to improve the launcher, which now offers more control over the home screen, and increase the number of apps compatible with BlackBerry Hub. The update includes the latest security patches from BlackBerry, allowing Priv owners to set custom personal data permissions, better manage notifications for privacy purposes, and make use of S/MIME for adding digital signatures and encryption to emails.

Last, BlackBerry added several new options to the camera, including a wider range of video frame rates, such as slow-motion.

BlackBerry said unlocked, non-carrier devices will see the update first, but all Priv’s should receive Marshmallow shortly.
