This is my understanding as well, and it seems to be supported by the apps I am able to install or not. The tablet only appears able to recognize apps that support Android 4.2.2 or older. Newer apps and newer versions of older apps won’t install.
This is rather easy to tell. If the tablet recognizes the .APK with either the App logo or the Android Man logo, then the app will install. Otherwise, the tablet recognizes the .APK with a document logo with a question mark, and it won’t install.
This 4.2.2 is so old - 10 years - and insecure it today shouldn't be used at all, IMHO.
You’re probably right about this. My main reason for wanting to install Google Play Store and Google Play Services on it is that some apps require Google Play in order to function fully. Others (e.g., AndrOpen Office) require Google Play in order to even function at all.
You probably need to install a "Google Play Store" ( 4-APKs-package) version matching Android 4.2.2, e.g. Google Play services 12.2.21 (030-188803320) (030) ...
I was thinking the same thing, but something weird happens here. The tablet easily recognize the most recent versions of Google Play Services and Google Play Store. I downloaded:
Google Play Services 20.09.14 from https://m.apkpure.com/google-play-se...le.android.gms
Google Play Store 19.3.25 from https://m.apkpure.com/google-play-st...ndroid.vending
Google Play Store 19.3.26 from https://google-play.uptodown.com/and...cargar/2204225
However, I had to search for really old versions of both Google Account Manager and Google Services Framework that would even install on the tablet. I used:
Google Account Manager 4.4.4 from https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...27136-release/
Google Services Framework 4.0.4-488656 from https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...88656-release/
Now, it only displays the former "Unfortunately, Google Play services has stopped."
It also says, "Unfortunately, the process com.google.process.gapps has stopped."
