Google's most popular apps, all in one place
Google Mobile Services (GMS) is a collection of Google applications and APIs that help support functionality across devices. These apps work together seamlessly to ensure that your device provides a great user experience right out of the box.
Add GMS to your devices
While the Android Open Source Project (AOSP) provides common, device-level functionalities such as email and calling, GMS is not part of AOSP. GMS is only available through a licence with Google and delivers a holistic set of popular apps and cloud-based services. Note: GMS apps can vary based on country availability and requirements.2
With GMS, the choice is yours
You can choose to pre-install GMS apps on a device-by-device basis, as well as pre-install your own apps, apps from third-party publishers or other AOSP apps. Of course, customers can also install any apps they choose from the Google Play Store.
Ensuring compatibility, right out of the box
We ask GMS partners to pass a simple compatibility test and adhere to our compatibility requirements for their Android devices. In turn, your users enjoy greater app reliability and continuity.Find out more about device compatibility
