    Dear all,
    This is the screen shot from my key 2. It looks like the installation of google account management has failed. I can't run google play store and gmail either.
    Any idea what's wrong with the set up of my key 2?Can't run Gmail or Google Play Store on my China KEY2-2018-06-27-15.15.26.jpg

    is yours a China set? Forum chats seems to indicate they come incompatible with Google or that some steps have to be taken to have it installed. you should check the forum. I do not know how to post the link here. hope you get it resolved!

    Check your KEY² variant.

    If it's a BBF100-4, it's meant for China - and it doesn't support Google.

    If that's your issue, here's the link to the Chinese site to allow playstore but you're going to have to use Translate. This appears to be for KeyOne but may work for both.

    You will need the Google Gmail settings for China and you can use hub to get to email. Assuming the Google email servers in China are still working.
