How to fix Google services problem on Vivo Xshot and Vivo Xplay 3S

If you are holding a Vivo Xshot or a Vivo Xplay 3S you may have run into a problem with Google services, which stopped working after the latest Funtouch update. Here's how to solve the problem with our Andi's guide.

The problem occurred after installing an update to Vivo, which fixed an incompatibility with Android Wear, but caused a problem in Google services, which stopped working.

What happened?

An email sent to Vivo he quickly gave us the answer: the company has decided to remove Google services from Funtouch because they are not used in China. Even stranger, they also told us that they created an international team just a month ago. Thinking about the international market and removing Google services at the same time seems like a rather strange choice.

Anyway, the good news is what conversation with Vivo led us to a solution!
