BYOD Android yet?

Checked in and asked Xfinity Mobile support if BYOD Android was available yet...got the same canned answer as the website, word for word.  Anyone have a date this will be available?  I want to switch but this is a hold-up I am not willing to let go of if I have to go buy a new Android phone through Xfinity exclusively.  I know there is a lot more involved behind the scenes, but if they can do it with ultra-proprietary-based Apple, why not with Android?  (IMHO, I would have adopted Android first over iOS).
