BlackBerry-Blend-Hero

Back in November last year (2014) we ran a poll to establish how many BlackBerry 10 users were taking advantage of BlackBerry Blend. In those early days of the software, Blend was only available to users that were rocking either the BlackBerry Passport or P'9983. Things have progressed nicely since then, including Blend being updated to version 1.2 very recently and with a lick of fresh paint it works like a dream.

New BlackBerry Blend beta invites going out

BlackBerry Blend is without a doubt one of my favorite additions that came with BlackBerry 10.3 and up but to be honest I've been bit miffed at the fact it hasn't gotten any real love since release. The last update to the desktop apps was back in December I believe and since then they've remained untouched despite some pretty obvious and annoying bugs.

Don't get me wrong, I still use BlackBerry Blend EVERY SINGLE DAY and I think it's the best thing since sliced bread plus, the device apps have been updated more frequently, but it needs some love in a bad way. Thankfully, someone at BlackBerry spotted that fact as well and now, there's a new beta available with invites being sent out as you're reading this.

The changelog and known issues list isn't huge but at this point any update to the desktop versions of BlackBerry Blend is appreciated.

Hard to say what has changed though, as it looks like they used the same change log from a previous release.

Sep 20, 2014 BlackBerry Blend appearing in users download lists in BlackBerry World

This is more of a PSA then anything but here it goes. As some folks have noticed, BlackBerry Blend has started appearing in the 'My World' section of BlackBerry World. As folks are noticing, you can't do anything with it as of yet and even clicking on it leads to an error.

That's because it's not ready and well, BlackBerry hasn't even officially announced it or even really acknowledged it as of yet. We don't know why it's showing up in your download list but one could easily assume it's in preparation for its eventual unveiling and official announcement that's likely to come on the 24th with the BlackBerry Passport.

Sep 01, 2014 More BlackBerry Blend details leak - System requirements, supported OS and more!
236 Comments
Peek

Although we've been tracking the existence of BlackBerry Blend for what seems forever now, even before it was called BlackBerry Blend, the offering has yet to be officially announced or even commented on by BlackBerry. Given the fact it has been appearing on a larger scale in BlackBerry OS 10.3, it's highly expected it will finally be made official with the BlackBerry Passport.

A new leak showing off the software has now appeared and while some of it still appears to be based off of dummy data or demo data, it does offer the best look yet at how end users will interact with BlackBerry Blend and what you can do with it. Plus, it also offers some finer details such as the system requirements you will have to meet in order to make use of the software.

With BlackBerry Blend you can:

  • View and respond to some messages and chats from different accounts in the BlackBerry Hub.
  • Access your BBM chats, groups, and BBM Channels.
  • Access your text messages (SMS).
  • View your daily, weekly, or monthly agenda.
  • Create new calendar entries and change existing entries.
  • Copy and transfer your files between your device and computer or tablet.
  • Open a browser with a secure connection to view private information from your organization's intranet, if your device is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Service 10.
  • Tasks that you might have previously completed using BlackBerry Desktop Software or BlackBerry Link can now be completed using BlackBerry Blend, including: Backing up and restoring device data, Switching to another device, Copying pictures, videos, and music between a computer or tablet and your BlackBerry 10 device.

From ChatBlend, to Fuse to BlackBerry Blend. It has been a long road for this software to come out but it would seem as though all the waiting is coming close to an end. Hopefully. I'm just glad I no longer look like a crazy person talking to myself while proclaiming BBM was coming to the desktop in some way. It has only taken well over a year but I'll take it.

For a while now we've been hearing about BlackBerry Fuse, BlackBerry Blend and BBM taking to the desktop. There's been a ton of proof that BlackBerry is essentially creating a way to bring all the information you house on your BlackBerry smartphone to a bigger screen, though what screen does sort of remain a mystery.

It could be your computer monitor, it could be your TV or it could even be a BlackBerry PlayBook or even a tablet made by a different manufacturer. There's just not enough known yet to really say but it has been suggested it fully arrive with 10.3.1 and the BlackBerry Windermere. In any case, BlackBerry has been working on this for a long time and while we've not yet got all the details straight, thanks to the latest BlackBerry 10.3 leak we're getting a look at what BlackBerry has thus far dubbed BlackBerry Blend Beta. We're still digging through all of the files but for now, check out the gallery below.

If you've been following all the latest BlackBerry 10 news for a while now, you might be familiar with the term 'BlackBerry Blend'. The files for it started appearing in early leaked builds of BlackBerry 10 and since then has been an ongoing piece of speculation over what it might be exactly. That speculation has grown even further now that BlackBerry has uploaded a video to their YouTube account offering a very small look at its existence beyond just some .bar files within a leaked OS.
