    I have downloaded this to use on my BlackBerry PASSPORT.
    I find I cannot use the Google film store it still wants Google play services not supported for this device.
    I thought this was what Cobalt had patched. I Can play my library on Google music but get an error message when I leave the app. my film library on Google film store is not accessible at all.
    has anyone had the same experience and have they found a solution?

    Cobalts software is very good, but it is only a workaround for basic compatibility issues with running Android apps on a BlackBerry 10 OS device. The more an app requires the real Google Play Services, the less compatible it's going to be with the BlackBerry Android 4.3 runtime.

    If you want full Google Android compatibility, you need to use a real Google Android device.

    I have no issue with either app when patched.

    However, BB10 cannot play protected (DRM) media.

    Conite is referring to Cobalt's Google Play Services patch that needs to be applied individually to some Android apps for them to work properly.
