27. Why isn’t Google Play (previously Android Market) available on my board?

Google Play is part of Google Mobile Services (GMS) and is licensed separately by Google. This is usually available on commercial Android devices. Though our hardware is capable of meeting requirements of the Google Test Suite that would lead to GMS certification, we have not added this to our product. Please contact our sales team at PenguinEdgeSales@penguinsolutions.com if this is a requirement for your product.

Nevertheless, it is possible to side-load any Android application using the following commands:

#adb devices

#adb mount

#adb remount

#adb install apk
