Alt solution, tested

  1. Install a latest Genymotion (version 2.6.0 in my case). Make sure the previous old (preview) Android 6.0 images are removed (Genymotion -> Settings -> Misc -> Clear cache).
  2. Add a new virtual device, select Google Nexus 5X and Android 6.0 image. It should download a new image from Genymotion website.
  3. Start created Google Nexus 5X – 6.0.0 – API 23 – 1080×1920 virtual device.
  4. Flash Genymotion-ARM-Translation_v1.1.zip (drag&drop the zip file to virtual device window) and then restart the virtual device.
  5. Flash gapps-L-4-21-15.zip and restart the virtual device again.
  6. Now add Google account in the virtual device via Settings -> Accounts -> Add account. 
  7. Do not start Google Play! Ignore any crashes in sign in process.
  8. Flash benzo-gapps-M-20151011-signed-chroma-r3.zip and restart the virtual device.
  9. Open Google Play in virtual device, update all installed applications.
  10. Now the device is prepared with working Google Play and Google Play Services.

Notes: It seems you cannot use the open_gapps packages as they are not signed. Perhaps there’s a workaround but the method above works out of the box.
