Need help to install Google Play Store into China Phone "Gionee M6S Plus" - ckpang - 06-09-2017

Hi,

Recently, i purchased a phone mentioned above in China and realized that it does not come with Google Play Store.  Do you have a method to help to install Google Play Store into this phone?  If not, is there a way to Root this phone in order to install Google Play Store?

I was not able to find an Google Play Store or Google Play Service when i used the phone to search using Gionee Download.  I only found Google Play Movie, Google Play Magazine, etc.

I tried transferring Google Play apk file from my current phone and install it.  It can be installed, however, after installation, when i tried to open it, it showed me a blank white screen and stopped there.  I am at a lost now, your help is highly appreciated.


Thank you & Regards,
CK

You first need to flash a custom recovery to the phone then flash gapps.zip (I recommend pico version) in the custom recovery

Your phone runs on Qualcomm MSM8976 Pro Snapdragon 653 Android 6 (Marshmallow).
A custom recovery needs to be built from source or ported from a stock recovery.img.
Do you have the stock recovery?

first start by searching online for the stock rom of your device model.
you can also consider contacting the device manufacturer, hopefully they'll assist you with the ROM
