Re: Google play services for bb10

you'd have to ask google, they don't allow their services to be used on android platforms that are not their own.

Hi Lavan,
You must be using an intent to share content on google+, which won't work on BlackBerry devices, kindle devices, nook devices or any android device that does not have a licence to use Google apps.

You have to change your approach and instead of using an intent use an alternative method. There is a library called socialauth which is pretty good and easy to use. I haven't used it with google + but I know that it does support some Google+ features. Have a look at it or one of the other alternatives.
