How to install the Play Store on Meizu (Meizu), where to download

How to install the Play Store on Meizu

Hello. In 2016, the Chinese manufacturer of mobile gadgets Meizu made a responsible decision – to abandon all Google utilities in the standard set of applications. Thus a lot of disk space and RAM was saved, but users began to have a question – how to install the Play Store on Meizu. There are two ways, which will be discussed in this review.

Using the built-in installer

This method will not work for all models. It will definitely work on the Meizu 5 or M3 Note. Here’s what you need to do:

  • On the home screen, there should be a folder with the best apps, which may be named “Hot Apps”. When you open it, you will see the “Google Services” icon (Services), which is designed to install the necessary software:
best meizu apps
Google Installer

At this point, your device must be connected to the Internet. It is better to use wireless Wi-Fi or 4G, because the programs have a lot of “weight”, and at low speeds the procedure will take a long time.

  • When the operation is completed, the smartphone screen will display a notification that the gadget needs to be restarted. And after a few minutes you will be free to use the Google software.
  • Many users delete the installer immediately after installation, considering it unnecessary and taking up unnecessary space. But I would not recommend doing so. After all, if Play Market fails, you may need to reinstall it in the future.

How to install Play Market on Meizu using an APK file

If the above option is irrelevant for you, there are some problems, then the issue is resolved as follows: you need to download the installation file to your computer, and then copy it to the memory of your smartphone by connecting its cable to the PC. Here is a step-by-step guide:

  • The installer can be downloaded from any resource you find on the web, but it is better to use proven sources. Here’s the link to download the Play Market on Meizu:


  • When you try to install, the Android system may swear, so you should first activate the installation from unknown sources in the security settings:

  • Now take the included USB cord and connect its ends to the laptop and the mobile device. Then move the downloaded googleinstaller.apk file to any place of the phone memory.

  • Run “Explorer” (File Manager) on Meizu, find the desired installer and simply tap on it to start the installation.

  • All that’s left is to wait for the procedure to finish. You will not need to reboot the gadget.

Possible conflicts

How to install Play Market on Meizu figured out, but there are some problems that can severely fray the nerves of the owners of Chinese “smarts”.


  • Suddenly Play Market stops running, you should perform its reinstallation.

On the main screen, go to the folder “Hot Apps” – Hot Apps and using the search bar to find the installer (write the query “Google installer”);

Perform the installation of the found file, and then run it. Since the software is already present in the phone, the uninstall button will be available – “Uninstall”, which should be pressed:

Remove Google services buttonAs soon as the cleanup is completed, we open the application again, but now there will be another button – “Keu to install”. Pressing it will reinstall the software and get rid of problems.

  • If the directory of Google software starts, but you can not download any utility or game, the problem is in the account. You should try to add a new one, log in to it, try to download something through it, and then switch back to your usual account.
  • Often users complain about the defect associated with downloading software on certain phone models. It is recommended to enter the settings, then – “Applications”. In the list, find “Download Manager” and go to its properties. In the new window, you should erase the data by tapping on the appropriate item:
Erase button

The good thing is that the Chinese manufacturer promptly fixes all bugs by releasing updates. My acquaintances repeatedly complained about the devices of this brand, wondered how to install the Play Market on Meizu. In the end, everything was solved very quickly and easily. I’m sure my instruction will not prove difficult to implement. But if there are any controversial points, please report them in the comments.

Regards, Victor!
