How to download Google Play Store For HTC
As long as your HTC is running on the Android operating system, it should come with the Google Play Store application, already installed and ready to go when you open the box. However, it’s possible that you are missing the official certificate from Google and you don’t have the Play Store application on your HTC device, which could be due to various reasons. One reason might be that your HTC device was rooted, then the device would have been able to have a system app like Google Play uninstalled, but this doesn’t occur by accident—you would know if you rooted your HTC phone, assuming you bought it new. Another reason is buying a secondhand HTC device, so the user who sold it to you may have rooted it previously, and then uninstalled Play Store from the phone.
But probably the most common reason is buying an HTC device from China at a deep discount. You see, most cheap HTC devices are usually not official products. In fact, they are often called “clone devices”, because they look authentic, but really aren’t. For this reason, they don’t have the official Google certificate, and it is that Google certificate which makes the Google Play Store app and other standard system apps come preinstalled on original Android devices. So, a clone phones will not come with the Play Store app most of the time.
If that’s the case, or if you just need to reinstall the Google Play Store because you are having problems with it, simply read the process below.
