    If you recently bought a new Android phone then it must have the Google Play Store app already, this tutorial is for those that cant find their Google play Store app any more on their device or those that mistakenly deleted or uninstalled theirs.

    This is very simple for me, but for some people who tried everything to install and download and nothing happens maybe you just seek for assistance in your problem.

    It installs, but when it asks me to open, it closes the google play store window

    Seems to me, Google should make it a lot easier for people that sell apps on their store…

    Can you tell me the version of Android your phone runs on and the version of play Store you installed? Can you try updating the app and see if it will work because that one may have been outdated? You should also ensure you have memory space on your device as this can also be the cause.
