What to do when missing requirements to use app

You might find some of your answers in Find Success on Google Play. If a user performs an action without satisfying all of the requirements, you could present a dialog explaining to the user what the requirements are and why they are necessary. You might also provide a link to redirect the user to the proper settings.

EDIT: The best practices in this situation are probably similar to Requesting Permissions at Run Time. Permissions Best Practices suggests something similar to what you are proposing, which is to show some sort of message or tutorial explaining to the user what is required and why, and then redirecting the user to the appropriate settings.

EDIT: One more example: That Android Documentation shows you how to use the Settings API to check which settings are enabled, and present the Location Settings dialog for the user to update their settings with a single tap. See Prompt the User to Change Location Settings
