Why I need Google Services on my phone to use Soundcloud mobile Android app? I am using Jolla with Sailfish OS / I have Soundcloud account. I can use Android app but haven't Google services. Is it possible to use app without Google services?

Hi tapiRR,

Thanks for getting in touch. Hmm, I'm not too familiar with Jolla / Sailfish 2.0 to be honest. Are you seeing an error message when you're trying to install the app?

I cannot guarantee that we'll be able to support the OS that you're using, but I'd be interested in seeing a screenshot of what you're seeing in order to forward it to our Android team.

Hi Mathis,

Thank you very much for your answer.

App already installed. Everything worked fine, but from the latest Soundcloud app update every time I run app, it ask me to install Google services. Now I can use it, just skip this message.

Is it crucial, can I use app in a future or I need to install Google services anyway?

Have a nice day!
