    Just use Yalp instead.

    Delete all of your Cobalt apps.

    Everyone now uses Yalp (fork) store as it is a Google Play Store client. Go here: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/com....kin.yalpstore/
    with your device browser and at THE VERY BOTTOM of the page download and install the link that shows " Download APK 1.4 MiB " . This will give you a working version of Google Play Store.

    That's because the android runtime is only at 4.3 on your device and many apps now require 5.0 and above. There is NOTHING you can do about that. Look at the minimum requirement on the app description and if it shows 4.4 or above, then it won't work.

    Just so you know, you can try an older version of apps from an app store such as https://www.apkmirror.com/ for example. Here you would search for the app you want to try and look for an apk version for Arm7 that has a minimum requirement of android 4.3. This is all trial and error and may still not work properly or may even be a security risk depending on the app and the circumstance. Most, if not all, banking apps these days will NOT work on a BB10 device because of the 4.3 limitation.

    Yalp won't display apps requiring 4.4 or above.

    But of course, many apps that support 4.3 and below simply don't work either.

    Yes, nowadays, the BB10 app support is severely diminished and the devices are mainly for communication (texting, email, calls). You can do a search here on CB for apps that work and if no answer just ask. Most people using BB10 use the above mentioned APKmirror web site, F-Droid app, and Yalp (fork). Occasionally you can find an older version of an app that works fine. Also make sure you download and install useful native apps from BBW before the native app store goes dark 31/12/2019 which is rapidly coming. There are some very nice apps there.

    Others may post a YouTube app as I rarely use it. When I do I use NewPipe Legacy ver from F-Droid which is a YouTube front-end for older android devices. It can be downloaded from here: https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org....newpipelegacy/ . If you want to try it after reading it's features just point your browser to the very bottom of the page to Download APK 5.9 MiB .

    p.s. be patient as this website is very slow (today especially).

    AFAIK, the only way to do that is through the desktop site.

    Cool, I knew it did on Android itself. So it also works on the BB10 ART? You've tested it?

    I use it regularly.

    It is a resource hog, so you can't do too much of anything else at the same time.

    Nice. Well, the desktop site is a nice option if the goal is to make the battery last longer.
