|Google Play is not available on this model.|
However, on the software side, the tablets have a huge problem. None have licensed the Google Play Store. A third party app store called the Tapnow Market is preloaded. It may be possible to side load the Play Store app, but I wouldn't count on it working 100% correctly.
Don't expect any of these tablets to be updated.
The Tapnow Market app icon mimics the old Google Market app icon, it uses the same colors and general look, and even has the same name. The content in the Tapnow Market is very limited. I searched for each of the 53 apps loaded onto my phone. Of those 53, I only found 1, wifi analyzer.
