VISO – install package directly from Google Play Store


Installing applications directly from the Google Play Store to one or many devices is done by first creating a repository “installation package”. Direct installation is possible only for free apps. There is no need to have the Google play services or even to have a google account on the devices you wish to install the apps to.

Open the repositories and click the “Packages” section. A list of existing packages will be displayed.


Click “Add New” to add a new package.

Select “Package from Play store” and click to open the play store website (If you know the exact name of the APK bundle there is no need to open the Play store)


Search the Play store for the desired app and make sure it is free. Copy the URL of the app.


Paste the URL in the Play store package name field. Note, the system will parse the name of the APK automatically.

Select the “master device” that resembles the target devices (ARM devices, x86 devices or a custom device you can add on the “domain settings”). The reason is that some apps install different APK for different platforms.


Click the “Click here to download the package” button.

When the progress bar finishes, click “confirm” and the package will be ready for installation. The download may fail once or twice, click the download again to retry. If the download fails, this package may not be suitable for direct install.

The package is ready with a default name as retrieved from the Play store.

In order to install the package see the “Apply commands and operations on devices” guide
