    Hi,

    i tried installing Android (4) via the new VM wizard in Parallels. That worked fine and i got my Bluetooth4.0 dongle working in android just fine. However, i would like to install android 4.4 this way.

    So i tried with the latest android 4.4 image from android-x86 website, and installed android. the installation worked but no bluetooth available.

    i am curious if the stock installation of android, available via the new VM wizard, has some modifications to make bluetooth dongle work?

    Hi Pixbroker,
    As of now Parallels Desktop 10 supports Android version which is downloaded within New Virtual Machine Wizard only. Please stay tuned for future updates.

    Parallels Desktop 11 will support Android 5 Lollipop?

    We are supporting the default Android OS from our wizard which is 4.4. So you can try to install it, but we cannot promise anything as it is not officially supported.

    Has anyone got this to work?

    Also do we need to install Google Play separately?

    Hi Stalksy, Android is supported with limitations and Google Play is not available in Android virtual machine.
