You probably came here after reading this post. For those of you who didn’t…Remix Mini users will no longer have access to Google Play Services after installing the latest update.

In the same vein, the people who installed Remix OS on their PCs don’t have Play Store installed by default either.

3. Open the app and select “Install Google Services”

4. Reboot Remix OS

5. Thank me later
