What is GMS and why should we install it?

If your phone doesn't have a pre-installed Google Play Store app, or you fail to install it on your device with the issues like the flashback, you should install GMS first.

GMS, the abbreviation of Google Mobile Services, is a set of applications and APIs that helps Google Apps work across the Android system. Without the GMS, google services will not work. The manufacturers who have a partnership with Google will have a pre-installed GMS on their devices, so users will find the Google Play Store when they start their phone. While for those devices without GMS, users can't find the Google Play store or can't successfully install it. In this circumstance, the solution above works.
