How To Install Google Play Services on FireStick [September 2021]


Update: Google Play Services are currently NOT working on FireStick. Leave your email in the comment section and we will let you know when this method is up and running. For now, you can install the alternate Aptoide TV Store on FireStick.

This is a step-by-step guide on how to install Google Play on Firestick, Fire TV & Fire TV Cube.

While Fire TV Stick is the best streaming device according to some, it has limitations too. For instance, it does not have Google Play Store to download some of your favorite apps.

Because there’s a beef between Amazon and Google, there is no straight way to download apps from Google Play Store but to sideload the app.

The Google Play Store lets you explore unlimited applications and games that aren’t all compatible with FireStick, but a lot of them are.

It may be an easy method to install Google Play service on FireStick but it’s a lengthy process so you need to hold tight and be patient.

Since Google Play services and some of its apps are geo-restricted in some countries, you will need a VPN such as Surfshark to access them.

How to Install Google Play Services on FireStick

Downloading and installing Google Play Store on Firestick is fairly easy and takes a few steps for you to enjoy uninterrupted entertainment.

To install the Google Play Store, you will need to download the Google Account Manager APK, Google Services Framework APK, Google Play Services APK, and then finally Google Play Store APK.

    hi, unfortunately this procedure didn’t work on my fire stick

  2. Jose M Veiras Blanco


    As 12/1/2020, downloader doesn’t connect using http, it requires https and all the links woks only with http.

    There is another downloader app, which support http but when I tried it shows ‘pending’ after I have entered the download link, I didn’t have enough time to troubleshoot so I will try next tine

    • Hey Jose, there’s no need to try this method for now as it is currently not working. We will let you know once we find out other methods to install Google Play. Until then, you can try using its alternative Aptoide TV.

  3. Error: Forbidden – so this will not work

  4. I just got the Amazon Fire Cube and it won’t allow me to download the manager it said to try using https instead of just http, but neither worked and it came up as forbidden. Is there another way? Or a workaround? All my movies are in Google Play 🤦🤷

    • Yes, Google Play Services is now currently unavailable and we’re sorry for that. You can try Aptoide TV on your Fire TV Cube? You will find many apps that are not available on the Amazon Store.

    • I recently went through the process of downlaoding all the apk files for google manager services play store etc… when i click on the play store app i get this error message ; This version of the app isn’t compatible with your device. To fix this problem, go to Settings and uninstall updates for the Google Play Store app. If you have any solutions to this so it can be resolved I would appreciate the help, and yes I realize that this may not be working for the firestick right now but like i previously said any assistance to resolve it would be appreciated thank you

  84. Tried the old 2p17 post of yours and got the firestick hung up when I tried to launch Google Play.
    Tried the new newest 2021 version of your instructions and got all the the error on both http and hattps. Then used Google to find the downloads adding APK download to each of the required files using Downloader as follows:
    Google Account Manager 5.1-1743759 apk download
    Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759 apk download
    Google Play Services 10.0.84 (230-137749526) apk download
    Google Play Store 7.5.08.M-all [O] [PR] 146162341 apk download
    Installed each one from Downloader after each was downloaded.
    I got a notification that the version of Google Play Services needed to be updated.

    However I found that Google Play now showed up in my Apps with it’s logo and even though Google Play tells me that Google Play Services needs to be updated While Google Play comes up on the screen with a continues downloading/buffering arrow loop it does not hand up the firestick, ie I can use the firestick back arrow to move off the non responsive Google Play Store.

    Tried to find an update to Google Play Services, but got completely lost in all the versions with no update success.

    Does this help you in the search for a work around? Or do you have a suggestion for a later version of Google Play Services to try?

    Thanks for your work and waiting for an answer.

    • This process used to work before but now it doesn’t. Amazon doesn’t support Google now. Whenever we have the solution we will share it with you on your email 🙂

  85. Please notify me when you.get Google Play Store working again.
