# Installing an Application

  1. Drag and drop the application APK file into the virtual device window.
  2. Use adb:
    1. Setup and connect adb as explained in Accessing a virtual device from ADB.
    2. Run adb install <application name>.apk.
  3. Install the Play Services as explained in Installing OpenGApps and use the Play Store to download and install the application.

# Applications with ARM code

Genymotion Cloud PaaS virtual devices architecture is x86_64. If your application relies on ARM native code, you must install an ARM translation tool to make it work. The ARM translation tool must match your virtual device Android version. Once installed, reboot your virtual device using the Power Off and Reboot feature.


For legal reasons, Genymobile cannot provide you with any ARM translation tools.
