It’s a big day for BlackBerry Priv owners. AT&T users finally got their big Android update, which was already available for everyone else, and now BlackBerry is updating several stock apps.

BlackBerry originally promised to update the camera, keyboard, Hub and DTEK applications on December 15, but each is already live in the Google Play Store. You can expect support for 16:9 photos in the camera, which is now faster, and indicators for low light and HDR photos. The keyboard also now supports 20 new input languages, emoji in predictive typing and improved cursor controls.

DTEK was updated with new options for managing types of notifications depending on your location, the type of notification and other variables. Hub is now fully integrated with WhatsApp and supports added sync support for text messages and email, the ability to look up contact information and new keyboard shortcuts for “next” and previous.”

All three applications are available in the Google Play Store now, so load up your Priv and get goin’.
