Genymotion doesn't provide Google Apps. To install Google Apps:
  1. Upgrade genymotion and VirtualBox to the latest version.
  2. Download the two zip files ARM Translation Installer v1.1 - and Google Apps for Android(gapps).
NOTE:> Click on the below gapps link according to Android version you are using in genymotion.

  1. Open genymotion emulator and go to home screen then drag and drop the first over the emulator. A dialog will appear and show as file transfer in progress, then another dialog will appear and ask that do you want to flash it on the emulator. Click OK and reboot the device by running adb reboot.
  2. After this drag and drop the second file and repeat the same steps as above. Run adb reboot and, once rebooted, Google Apps will be in the emulator.
  3. At this point 'Google Apps Services' will crash frequently with the following message google play services has stopped working. Open Google Play. After providing your account details, open Google Play and update your installed Google Apps. This seems to make Google Play realize you have an old Google Play Services and will ask you to update (in my case, updating Google Hangouts required a new version of Google Play Services). I've also heard that simply waiting will also prompt you to update. The 'Google Play Services' app doesn't seem to appear otherwise - you can't search for it. You should then see an offer to update Google Play Services:
Once the new Google Play Services is installed you will now have stable, working access to Google Play

  1. thank you for the awesome post. I have tried this method and it worked, I do have 1 question and hope you can help me. I created an account on the genymotion VM and it worked great, i was able to download games and apps. But when i log into store with the same email as the one on genymotion google say you dont have any devices. so i guess my question is how can i make google think that the genymotion vm is a real device and not a vm. thank you in advance for your help
