Below is a neat and noob proof guide for installing Google Play APK (or just about any APK).

  1. If you downloaded the APK file above on PC, then transfer it to your android device. Either of internal memory or external SD card would do fine.
    └ If you downloaded it directly on your Android device only, then skip this step.
  2. Enable installation of Apps (APKs) from Unknown sources in your device’s settings. Here’s how:
    • Android 2.3 (and below) → Go to Settings » Application » check ‘Unknown sources’ box.
      Settings for Android 4.3 and below versions
    • Android 4.0 (and above) → Go to Settings » Security and check ‘Unknown sources’ box.
      Settings for Android 4.0 and above versions
  3. Now, using a file manager, open the folder where you downloaded or transferred the ply.4.5.10.apk file on your device. We recommend the ES File Explorer File Manager app, however any file manager should work fine.
    └ If you downloaded the apk file on device, it should be in Download folder.
  4. Tap the Google Play Store APK file ‘ply.4.5.10.apk’ to begin installation and you will be done in less than a minute.
