In addition to the new beta apps released through the BlackBerry Beta Zone, BlackBerry has now also rolled out several public app updates for BlackBerry Priv owners through the Google Play Store.

riv apps updated in the Google Play Store - Camera, DTEK and more!

This time around, we're getting updates BlackBerry Device Search, BlackBerry Keyboard, BlackBerry Camera, BlackBerry Launcher, and finally, DTEK by BlackBerry. Most of the updates have new changelogs, except DTEK, which is simply using a recycled one so it's a guess as to what has changed there.

The camera update is perhaps the biggest of them all where it adds support for manual controls but, don't let that be confused with support for Camera API2, that still seems missing. But the newer manual controls within the BlackBerry Camera app alone are still certainly appreciated.
