Why Google made prerequisite and compulsory to install some apps for some apps:

  • In this way, there is no way some of the linked app to work it again.
  • If you are at the same problem then you could apply both of these suggestions and first try the first suggestion.
  • As it would not provide any sort of data loss.
  • There are instances of using Android Auto which will not work if Google Apps is not installed.
  • Especially for android 5 and with Lyf Water 7 mobiles in order to use Android Auto, Google Now Launcher will not work if Google App is not installed.
