How to Set Up Play Market Meizu
Installation Instructions Google Play on Meizu phones
Support for installed Play Store on Meizu
As you know, developers with “Meizu” when working with the OS went a special way, developing on the basis of the “Android” OS a modified operating system called “Flyme OS”.
One of the features of this system was the rejection of pre-installation on the phones from Meizu M3 and M5 of a number of programs from Google, in particular, the Play Store. This decision, dated in the fall of 2016, was due to the decision of “Meizu” to avoid problems in the operation of outdated versions of Google applications when a user purchases a new Meizu phone.
Meizu decided to abandon the Google Play Store pre-installation on their phones
Instead, the company proposes to install the latest version of Play Market (and other applications from Google) using a special installer called “Google Installer”. At the same time, the installation of these applications from Google is possible only for official Meizu devices sold (to Ukraine, Belarus, etc.) with a confirmed IMEI.
