Android app player update will once again allow for hiding of the Android bar in apps

For those of you out there who make use of Android apps on BlackBerry 10 through the official versions in BlackBerry World or through sideloading, you may have noticed the ability to hide the Android action bar on most apps has gone missing. On the BlackBerry Q10, it's especially annoying to have that happen as it takes up valuable screen space but you need not worry.
As shown in the screenshot above, the option to hide the bar will return in BlackBerry 10.2 releases starting with versions .16xx and up with the screenshot coming from OS 10.2.0.1719. At this point, there hasn't been any leaks of an OS that supports the function and there's still no official word on when BlackBerry 10.2 will be released to the masses but for now, I'm just pleased in knowing the option will return.
