    It's been a while since I sold my Q10 and Z10. I was hoping 10.2 would get Google voice working, but I haven't seen anything anywhere pertaining to the new android runtime on BB 10.2

    How's the android runtime in 10.2? Has it improved since 10.1? Not having google voice was a deal breaker for me, I'm hoping someone can shed some light on the progress of 10.2.

    Well i am not a google voice guy myself, but i can tell you that the runtime in 10.2 (sporting 4.2.2 Jelly Bean) is light years ahead of the current one on 10.1 . Apps generally run much smoother and are more reponsive. Also some apps like Vine require a higher version of Android OS, so this allows us to use pretty much any app from the Google Play Store. The runtime is still in beta so they have time to perfect it and hopefully allow users to run the apps as if they were native ( e.g. recording vine videos). Also for Q10/ Q5 users to have the ability to hide the bottom bar

    I've been using Google voice since 10.0. The latest working version is . and it works well. Sometimes it crashes when searching contacts and obviously it doesn't integrate with your BlackBerry's phone app but for my purposes (mostly texting) it's great.
