BlackBerry Hub app launching on a BlackBerry KEYone Black Edition

As we saw with the latest Password Keeper, the folks at BlackBerry have been working on optimizing all of their apps for Android 8.0+ Oreo and the latest batch of BlackBerry Hub+ beta app updates continue that trend, specifically for the BlackBerry Hub.

Chances are there might be a few more updates that end up appearing as well as it seems things are rolling out slowly. Also, I noted these as beta but the BlackBerry Launcher update, which is just a basic update, appears to be a public release.

There's something quirky going on with how BlackBerry lists some updates as beta and some updates as public releases which makes it hard to say one way or another if it's a public or beta release. For now, best I can say is hit Google Play. If they're available, they're public. If they're not, well then they're beta and you'll have to wait a bit longer but at least you know what is coming. As far as I can tell, however, most of these updates are beta releases.
