GREAT!!! This is something that Non-Google android (such as NokiaX, ?XiaoMi?, Amazon/bb) will miss big time. This is why you should buy REAL android if you want android apps. *I'm not sure if we can install google play on XiaoMi device

Google Play Services and other Google apps are installed by default on Xiaomi devices. At least here in Singapore.

Verizon S5 here stock still running version 4.8.20. When I click on the build version it still says Google Play Store is up to date. WTH

Hey there. I think the play store and the the "services" that runs it are two different things as I was wondering why My Moto G LTE hadn't changed too. I actually reset my phone and it updated it said google play services to version 5.0. But then when I still go back in the setting and look at the build number of the store, It still says Build version 4.8.20. The services app when it updates also just dissapears! So im not sure there is way to really check. Yours is probably already updated.. If you really know how to look at all the in depth codes (complicated stuff) like develpers use I think you can see. Here is the only place I actually found the app as well -​ It's weird it doesn't show if you search for it as an app on your phone. I found it using laptop.
