NHS Covid-19 app won't work unless I update Google Play Services

I’m also interested how other microG features work, and what data is send through Google, can that be explained also?

What you need to know about microG you can get from them and other places.

microG website
microG GitHub
microG overview at Wikipedia

I like to know what data is exchanged between Google and microG, how it’s better then the Google implementation? i don’t see this on the website, only an abstract explaination. And github… that would take a lot of time… So still like some details on this stuff.


I think this is really a fault in the app. It should not have this requirement if it is supposed to be usable by as many people as possible.

A few screenshots instead of long words …

What device is that? Does the venue check-in work too?

Samsung Galaxy S5 (klte) with aPixelExperience 9.0 customROM - incl. module venue check-in.

The new UK NHS Covid-19 app version 3.7.2 (85).85 from 14.10.2020 works for me with microG Services Core version on @harvery186’s Q-GSI ROM, …


… but not the module ‘venue check-in’. This is probably very device dependent …

The same is true for me, using the same version of microG Services Core on my Sony Xperia XZ1 Compact (sadly not yet running an /e/ ROM, as there isn’t an up-to-date, working version for this device yet :frowning: )
