    In your App list it is simply named Store... The icon looks like this:

    It is not Google Play. None of those Apps will work on your Lumia 630. It is the Windows Phone Store.

    It will not do this thing. Only Android phones can access Play. It also will not access the iOS App Store.

    Your Lumia 550 is not an Android device.

    How to install Android APK on Windows:

    Project Astoria is a bridge for Android enabling developers to port Android apps to Windows 10 Mobile. Some folks have created a tool called wconnect that helps you install Android APK on Windows phones. Following are the supported devices that you could install Android APKs of your favorite apps on along with the complete guide.

    Supported devices:

    Lumia 920
    Lumia 925
    Lumia 929 (Lumia Icon)
    Lumia 830
    Lumia 930
    Lumia 1520
    Lumia 635
    Lumia 730
    Lumia 820
    Lumia 435
    Lumia 928

    Note: Installing APKs without permission is considered piracy. This is a third-party tool so proceed if you are confident about handling any and all the issues that may appear.
    How to install Android apps on Windows 10 Mobile:

    Required files: Download wconnect tool and Android SDK adb tool.

    Extract the contents of the downloaded files to a folder.
    Open wconnect folder and install IpOverUsbInstaller.msi and vcredist_x86.exe.
    On your Windows 10 Mobile, go to Settings > Update & security > For Developers and enable Developers Mode and Device Discovery.
    Go to the extracted wconnect folder and open a command prompt with Shift + Right-Click and click on Open Command Windows Here.
    Next, connect your Windows Mobile phone to the computer either via USB (recommended) or via Wi-Fi. Type in the pairing codes, if asked.
    Go to the extracted adb folder and open a command prompt like before.
    Make sure that your Windows phone is connected: type adb devices in the command prompt. Enter to run it. This will show you the list of all the connected devices.
    Copy the APK file of the Android app that you want to install in the adb folder directory and type adb install APKNAME.apk where APKNAME is the name of your APK file.
