How To Install Playstore In Gameloop (Previously Tencent Game Buddy)
Important note: Not all the play store games and apps are supported by Gameloop. Many are supported but there are still exceptions. The reason for this is Gameloop still uses android 4.4.2 (Kitkat). So be careful about which games you install. Some of them might not work on KitKat.
