Again.
Samsungs decision seems only Tizen Store... nothing else.

ACL use *.apk inside.
These *.apks run on Android device...

1:1 apk inside... nothing ported...

So in theory many more Android apks could be offered through ACL...

Polaris or other Converter or Emulator or Virtual ... or what ever...

In my opinion license problems... and other problems... Copyright related

Not expect tooo much Support from Samsung about Android on Tizen...  ;)

Best Regards

You are right  it is not so much about what technology / emulator but who owns the apps.
You can not simply make a 3rd party app run through emulator :-) owners should be on-boarded first.

Though mine is also an outside perspective to this issue.

Open Tizen Store
Search for:
ACL

Scroll down...
Click on...
More apps by:
OPENMOBILE WORLD WIDE

Look at Copyright for each app...

-------
About Polaris...

Youtube Video is older 2 years...

Also this solution I think was never designed for enduser(s)...

Only for Developers... to safe some time... if they allready have their OWN app for Android.

But nobody say/said... that Polaris is Tool for free...

It makes no sense for App Designer if Apps are free of costs... but you have to pay for Converter...

I know its hard... to understand or to accept...

But sometimes not all for free or easy 1 click solution in commercial world.  :-[

Their are rules for companies...

Endusers could accept... or ...  ;)

Feel free to contact companies... about Android@Tizen...

Thanx for info...

SM-Z130H aka Z1 has few more... but also depend on country and so on...

Suspended or not and so...

I can see around 15 + ACL enabled titles...
Few are free and few are for few Cent...

Read text at end description... every ACL app have this text...

Quote
ACL-enabled app... not optimized for this device...

After licence and money thingie... next is compatibility...  :-[

This is not easy to answered "thing"...

Very complex... many parties involved... many law/Copyright etc...

Remember... Tizen is/was designed to be ... as Android.
Otherwise it would make more sense to buy Android handset... if Android apps are mandatory.

Sorry for bad English...
But maybe few things are now more clear.  ;D

You cannot. The video is ... years old.
Not useful anymore.
Current solution is ACL by OpenMobile and it offers 10-15 apps in Tizen Store.

If you want to try something new... search elsewhere. xda forum could be good start.  :)
