We are going to show you where to find/download and how-to install Android apps on your BlackBerry 10 devices running OS 10.2.1. First off if you are not running OS 10.2.1 follow this guide to update.
There are many different ways to grab Android apks, now that BlackBerry 10.2.1 allows direct installation of these apps, this guide will be convenient for those who wish to do so.
As of right now there are no Google Play Store apps on BlackBerry World but there are third party native clients that are available, sideloading is required. The best app right now, in my opinion is Snap, Snap is a native BlackBerry 10 app which contains the Google Play Store integration with the ability to update your Android apps via the client. To get Snap:
- Download it here
- Once downloaded you may sideload it to your device, if you need help sideloading follow our guide here or here
Another method would be sideloading the Amazon App Store which could be found here. If sideloading is just not your thing follow our how to pull APK files using your BlackBerry browser guide here. If you need help drop a comment below or start a forum thread in our BlackBerry forum here. For a more detailed guide on installing Snap Google Play Store guide see this guide.
