Genymotion PaaS ARM/ARM64 images are not available on GCP, Alibaba or Azure yet. If your application is not available in Google Play Store, or if you get the message This application is not compatible with your device, it usually means that it is only available for ARM. In that case, you need to install ARM translation tools before installing openGAPPS. For more details, please refer to Applications for ARM
