    How to get Android APPS working on Windows Phone 10 Preview [EASY GUIDE]

    [​IMG]

    Microsoft has been working on Android APK support in Windows Phone 10. This guide will talk how to enable Android virtual machine on Windows Phone 10 Preview and install Google Play Android Store with further Android apps.

    You will need:
    Windows PC
    USB Cable
    Nokia Lumia Windows 10 Phone with at least 1GB of RAM. List of tested and working models:
    I will use Nokia Lumia 920 for this guide. It's running Windows Phone 8.1, so I'll need to update it to Windows Phone 10 first.

    Updating to Windows Phone 10 Preview
    1. Download Windows Insider app from Windows app store.
    2. Enroll for Windows Phone 10 Preview Insider program, I recommend Fast Ring option for the latest Win 10 version.
    3. Phone will reboot.
    4. Go to Settings > Phone Update > Download Windows 10 update.
