Install Android App APKs Directly with BlackBerry 10.2.1

Install Android App APKs Directly with BlackBerry 10.2.1

Rumors regarding Google Play Store and the Android runtime have been swirling lately. While BlackBerry denies offering support for the Google Play Store, the Android runtime in BlackBerry 10.2.1 will allow you to directly install Android app APKs directly.

Shown in the screenshot above, users will be able to download Android app APKs and install them. BlackBerry gives a disclaimer about the newly opened feature for BlackBerry 10.

This feature will surely make BlackBerry 10 users immediately happy. You will literally be able to install almost any Android app. However, you won’t be able to make use of widgets, etc.
