GOOGLE PHONE APP MAKES WAY TO PLAY STORE

FIRST OF ALL, CHECK IF YOUR ANDROID PHONE IS COMPATIBLE
It’s important to note that there’s no guarantee that this app will work on an old Android version. We’re talking about, Lollipop, Kitkat, versions from three years ago. According to XDA-Developers, the phone app can work with specific devices that have com.google..android.dialer.support. Unfortunately, this can’t be confirmed by any official source. If you’ve experienced with an ADB command on CMD you can try to connect your device and check if it is compatible with the code below:
pm list libraries | grep "com.google.android.dialer.support"
According to users who have tested it, it does not seems to support the current Galaxy and OnePlus smartphones. But it is working fine on Asus and LG handsets. Worth noting that LG runs software that is heavily modified. The search giant is yet to confirm the availability for all Android smartphones, but it still surprisingly works in several phones now.
