How to Download and Install Google Play Services on Your Android Device

Is your brand new Android phone missing the Google Play Store? Maybe you've got a tablet that doesn't have it pre-installed. Fear not, fellow app adventurer! You can gain access to the vast library of Google Play with a few clicks.

This guide will walk you through downloading and installing Google Play Services, the backbone that lets you download all your favorite apps. But before we jump in, a word of caution: Google Play Services typically comes pre-installed on most Android devices. This process is mainly for those who, for whatever reason, don't have it.

Understanding Your Device

There are two main scenarios:

Downloading the Goods

We'll use a trusted source called APKMirror to download the necessary files. Remember, downloading apps from outside the Play Store can be risky, so stick to reputable websites.

  1. Head over to APKMirror in your device's browser.
  2. Search for "Google Play Services." Make sure you download the version compatible with your device's architecture (usually arm64-v8a for modern devices). You can find this information in your device's settings under "About Phone" or "About Tablet."
  3. Download the appropriate APK file.
  4. Depending on your device, you might also need to download Google Account Manager, Google Services Framework, and the Play Store app itself. Search for each on APKMirror and download the compatible versions.

Making Installation Possible

Before we dive into installing, there's one crucial step: Allowing your device to install apps from unknown sources. This is because you're downloading from outside the Play Store.

  1. Head to your device's Settings.
  2. Navigate to "Security" or "Apps & Notifications" (depending on your device).
  3. Find the option to "Allow apps from unknown sources" and enable it. Don't worry, you can disable it again after the installation process.

Installation Time!

Now that you have the files and your device is ready, it's installation time!

  1. Open your file manager app and locate the downloaded APK files.
  2. Install them in this order: Google Account Manager (if needed), Google Services Framework (if needed), Google Play Services, and finally, the Play Store app.
  3. For each APK, tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions to install.

Play Time!

Once everything is installed, you should be good to go! Open the Play Store app and sign in with your Google account. Now you can explore the vast world of Android apps and games.

Congratulations! You've successfully downloaded and installed Google Play Services on your Android device. Remember, downloading from unknown sources can be risky, so only use trusted websites like APKMirror and be cautious about the apps you install. Now get out there and play!
