I know it's a relatively new and unstable application but I figured if anyone has suffered through the issue and solved it then they can help me too.

Anbox does't come with Google Services, As Google Services can't be installed on an Unregistered Device / Firmware, but their are ways to achieve that in Custom Roms or even Emulators, But if you want to use Android to it's fullest then Google Play Services is a must.

What have I tried so far?

I've tried to install Google Play Services x86 apk, which successfully got installed and also appears in Settings > Apps

I've Also tried to install Play Store which also got successfully installed and appear in the App Drawer of Anbox (also In Gnome).

But it Doesn't work like Expected, for example, YouTube app loads content but can't play videos, Google play store doesn't even load content, I think maybe because Google Play Services isn't installed as System app/ or maybe because there are some other g-apps that these things depend on and i'm missing them.

I'm ready to provide more details from my side

    This is off-topic any way you look at it. – user589808 Apr 13 '17 at 4:38

    The way I see it, it's like asking how to install some package on a CentOS container running in Ubuntu. Doesn't matter that it's running on Ubuntu, since the problem is entirely inside the container. – muru Apr 13 '17 at 5:30

    The way I see it, its like asking about virtual-box, which is also off topic but totally entertained on this site. – j0h Apr 14 '17 at 23:46

    It's not clear to me why this would be off-topic. In particular, I expect that if Google Play can be run in Anbox then it will be side-loaded using adb or a similar tool running in the Ubuntu system. I'm voting to reopen this. – Eliah Kagan Sep 30 '17 at 8:33
