Here is how to fix an error similar to this: App "Won't run without google play services which are not supported by your device" on Firestick 2.

There was an older thread here: https://forum.xda-developers.com/fir...ooted-t3574088 that updated info from here http://www.aftvnews.com/how-to-insta...-without-root/ but both are outdated at least for the apps I am using. Also, they did not list the source for their working version for when the tutorial gets dated.

Only two steps are required.

For now, https://www.apkmirror.com/ has the most up to date version and seems to update daily. You can use a sideloaded Google Browser or the AFTV browser in the Downloader App (enable JavaScript in settings) that is provided in the Amazon Firestick Store.

1. Go to source website (they do not have an app) and search Google Play Store for ANDROID TV. Ensure you download the version that explicitly states (Android TV) in the title. The ones that were not titled did not work even though the description said for Android TV.

2. On the same website search and download Google Play Services for Android TV

That is it. No need to download anything else, no need to log in, or even click the apps you downloaded. Since the website does not have an app, it won't auto update but hopefully, your apps do not require a constantly updated store.

The play store does not need to load. This guide is not for getting a functioning play store but to allow apps that require Google Play Services to function.

Thank you, bro. Last time I downloaded 4 files including a PlayStore, this is excellent.

You are welcome. I know, it was much simpler than the older tutorials made it out to be. Also by listing the source, hopefully, this tutorial can be relevant for a very long time.
