BlackBerry OS 10.2 with WiFi Direct, actionable notifications gets leaked


BlackBerry’s upcoming OS 10.2 (build just got revealed over at the CrackBerry forums where a user has posted screenshots from the upcoming update. The screenshots reveal a bunch of new features the most prominent of them being actionable notifications and WiFi Direct. Actionable notifications will allow users to pull down notifications and interact with them directly without having to jump into the application.


Case in point being responding to messages. The other addition ie WiFi Direct allows users to enable simple peer to peer wireless connectivity between devices like phones, tablets and other smart devices without requiring access to a wireless router. A native Evernote application will also be a part of the update in addition to a settings application and app manager. The operating system also gets configurable toast notifications that also show up on the lockscreen. BlackBerry has been doing a good job improving the feature set of its fledgling operating system. They managed to ship 2.7 million units of OS 10 based handsets and a mature operating system should help increase those numbers in the future. We’ll have more for you on the OS 10.2 release as we hear about it.
