I recently purchased a Gionee M3S Android phone. It came with Google play on the home screen, but when clicked, that just pops up a white box briefly. How do I enable Google play on this phone?
Here's what I had to do to get it working (after several failed attempts):
- On the M3s, I searched for "google play services apk mirror", and went to this URL: http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-services/
- Selected the most recent version (in my case 8.7.03)
- Chose the 8.7.03 (2645110-246) (arm64+arm / Android 5.0+ / 320dpi) version. The important thing here is the -246 at the end, which targets the M3s hardware.
- Downloaded and installed the APK. Allowed untrusted app to run.
- Followed application prompts to setup the app, then ran Google Play.
Now Google Play works and can download apps, etc.
