      I recently bought Xiaomi Redmi 3 and I was facing the same problem. The ONLY thing you should do is to download the latest version of Google Play Services Apk and I strongly recommend you to visit the site androidapksfree and search for the latest verison. Hope this will work for you guys :)

      • Angel says:

        Another solution that worked for mw was: rebooting the phone after tou install all the google apps and then delete the google account you used to register. ONce you delete the account just added it again and everything will work perfectly

    • Sumit says:

      Sorry Arsh I’m out of ideas. Both versions of Google Installer not worked for you. I don’t what happens it works fine for me and friends. I don’t know any other method to install play service on non rooted phones. Maybe factory reset is the last option for you.
      One more thing did you also uninstall the play services from settings before installing the Google Installer?

  12. Arsh singh says:

    No I don’t uninstalled to do that

  13. Arsh singh says:

    Sumit I have a idea to delete your play store and try to download it again.i known you will succeed in downloading it again.but plz share the steps with me

  14. Sumit says:

    Uninstall the play services from phone settings – > Apps and you can find it there. After that reboot your device and try installing the Google Installer again. If this also won’t work for you then perform a factory reset.

  15. Arsh singh says:

    I cannot fully uninstall it. I can only stop it’s updates and clear cache and it ok

  25. Agusia says:

    I tried to install google installer on a few ways and always I meet one of the problems. The first one is that I can’t log into Google account because “there is a problem communicating with Google servers”. So then, I unistalled all Google apps and intalled Google Installer from Xiaomi Store. However, in this case I can’t synchronise my contact, although I have contacts sync. downloaded, all permissions allowed. In the setting of synchronisation of Google account there’s no “contacts” only “people data”. I don’t know if it’s the same but anyway – the contacts are not synchronised :( I tried to install and uninstall all google services several times and always one of the errors ocures (depending on from where I download the intaller)
