With the bridge youÔÇÖll be able to:

  • Use a Microsoft interoperability library to integrate Microsoft services into your app with little effort
  • Test and debug your app from your preferred IDE
  • Publish your app and get paid through the Windows Store

You can install now (some) unofficially applications on your windows 10 phone.

You can (at your own risk) experiment, installing android applications on your Windows Phone 10 mobile.
