That’s all there is to it! Updating MicroG on CalyxOS is a simple process that only takes a few minutes. Once you’ve updated MicroG, you’ll be able to enjoy all of the latest features and bug fixes.
Why Update MicroG?
MicroG is an open-source replacement for the proprietary Google Play Services. It allows you to use all the features of Google Play Services without actually installing it on your device. This includes features like Google Maps, Push Notifications, and the Play Store.
Updating MicroG is important for two reasons. First, it allows you to access the latest features and bug fixes. Second, it ensures that your device is compatible with the latest version of the Play Store.
What is MicroG?
MicroG is a free and open-source framework that allows applications designed for Google Play Services to run on systems, where Play Services is not available. It provides core functionality like authentication to your Google accounts, synchronized contacts, and location services which work independently of GMS. Essentially, it is a way to use all the apps that require Google Play Services without actually installing GMS on your phone.
There are two parts to MicroG:
- The microG Project
- The LineageOS Project
The microG Project is a free and open-source software project that aims to provide a replacement for Google Play Services on devices running Android. The project was started by a developer known as Marvin Wißfeld, with the goal of creating a free and open-source alternative to Google Play Services.
The LineageOS project is a free and open-source operating system for smartphones and tablet computers, based on the Android mobile platform. It is the successor to the highly popular CyanogenMod project. The LineageOS project was started by a team of developers who were former members of the CyanogenMod team. The project’s goal is to provide a “stock Android” experience on devices that are not supported by Google.

How to Update MicroG
MicroG is an open-source alternative to Google Play Services. It allows Android apps to use Google Play Services APIs while running on devices that don’t have Google Play Services installed. This is useful for running Google Play Store apps on devices that don’t have Google Play Services, such as Amazon Fire tablets.
To update MicroG, open the app, go to the Settings page, and tap on the “Check for updates” button. If there is an update available, it will be downloaded and installed automatically.
