Installing Google Play Services on the One M9+ (Video)

By Hayato Huseman June 25, 2015, 5:45 pm

The One M9+ is one of HTC’s latest and greatest smartphones — so much so, in fact, that it’s led the company to receive quite a lot of flack for not shipping it as its main flagship for 2015. But if you went to the trouble of importing an M9+ of your own, particularly one from China, you might have trouble downloading the familiar Android apps you’re used to, thanks to a lack of Google Play Services. Even if you manage to sideload the apk files from elsewhere, many of them still won’t run without Google’s framework, and it might drive you crazy to not be able to use some of Android’s best services on your new expensive handset.

POCKETNOW VIDEO OF THE DAY

Installing Google Play Services on a device that doesn’t have it out of the box usually entails rooting it and flashing a Gapps package via recovery mode. The problem with that, aside from being overly complicated for many users, is that rooting can void your warranty, and developer support for devices like this one can be few and far between. Thankfully, there’s a much simpler option to get Play Services on the One M9+.
