Blackberry OS 10 and Android Support Introduction

You wonder about how to get Android apps working on your BlackBerry OS 10 device? Well! They do already when you have got your phone, but these Android apps doesn’t require Google Account. There are two types of stores that comes with the phone. One of them is the BlackBerry OS 10 Store, while the other one that comes with the operating system is Amazon Store. Here you can download Android types of apps for the phone, but the number of apps is really low compared to what you can find on Google’s Play Store.

Installing the needed Eye watching tools from Google

When installing Google parts, you also agree that your device will be watched by Google. The BlackBerry devices are very secure, but if you want to get Google compatible Android apps. Then you need to lower your security a bit.

My advice is to Download and Install all of these apps that You need to get Google Play running

  1. Download Google Play Services APK Here

  2. Download Google Account Manager APK Here

  3. Download BlackBerry Google ID APK Here

  4. Download Google Play Store APK Here

Download and Install all of these APK apps first. Then you won’t be risking doing stuff so that stuff just works partly. You want Google Play to work, right? So, do follow and then let’s configure your BlackBerry OS 10 device for getting ready for Google Play.

Now it’s time to Configure your BlackBerry OS 10 device for Google Play store

If Google Play store isn’t working after installing, then you need to look into the Google Play Services, Google Account Manager and also check if Android see BlackBerry Google ID. Sometimes I’ve got Javascript error in the BlackBerry Google ID app, but you just try again and it will work in the end. It is also in BlackBerry Google ID app, where you can set Android settings on your BlackBerry OS 10 device.

There is great Android support in BlackBerry OS 10, but there are services which isn’t available for you. So, do test it out. Line and Viber apps works nicely, while Whatsapp Android version won’t work. Google Fit doesn’t work and there is other apps that have issues.
