3 Ways to Install Google Play on Huawei Phones


Over the past years, Huawei Company has been able to manufacture Android devices that are very pocket friendly. Furthermore, the Company has been able to create very powerful Smartphones which at the moment, is competing with other huge companies like Samsung and Apple. In addition, Huawei has managed to overthrow all the two companies and thus, it is the leading Company. This has made the company emerge as the number-one handset vendor in the entire world.

Unfortunately, the journey towards the success of Huawei Company has been cut short, and this is because there is a trade war between China and USA. The US government went ahead and placed the company on the list of entities. This list has prevented all companies in the USA from doing business with China. This also includes Google, and as a result, Huawei can never use any product of Google or any services on any of their smartphones.

Consequently, smartphones of Huawei Company, ever since the production of Mate 30, are being shipped without the installation of Google Play Services. But today, we have good news for everyone sowning Huawei smartphones because we can fix everything. All you need to do is follow the steps below so that you may be able to install Google Play Services on your smartphone. They are as follows:

1. Use Googlefier

But thanks to Googlefier, which has made the whole process very simple, here is what you need to do.

Before beginning your process, it is mandatory for you to factory reset your smartphone and then swipe it back so that it becomes brand new. You must factory reset your smartphone because of the presence of some settings or apps that may interfere with the installation process. You should note that the interference of the installation process may reduce the chances of getting it up and thus running successfully.

You should know that Googlefier is not supported on Huawei smartphones that are EMUI 11 or new latest devices. So if your smartphone has EMUI 11, the only option is to downgrade your device to EMUII 10 or older to function properly. After doing it all, then your device is all set.

Gspace is a new app available on the app store of Huawei smartphones, enabling you to install Google Apps on Huawei successfully.

Gspace typically installs a small virtual environment, also known as a container, on your Huawei smartphone on the top side of the Original Operating System. This, therefore, makes it very operative even for the high-end and newest smartphones such as the Huawei P40 series, Huawei P50 series, Nova 8 series, and Huawei Mate 40 series.

We have two versions of Gspace that are; new and old versions.

The new version of Gspace lacks the Google play store, and this is due to the strict rules of Huawei Company, which does not allow the installation of Google apps which is an American Company, to Chinese Huawei Smartphones.

On the other hand, the old version of Gspace supports Google Play Store.

However, do not be worried about the new version of Gspace since we now have a method that allows the installation of Google Play Stores on any Huawei phone, and the steps are as follows:

Step 1: Open Google Search App. Its shortcut is present with the rest of the apps in the Gspace app.

Step 6: Now, the play store will open.

Step 7: The first thing you should do in the Play Store is; Search for Google Play Services and update it to the latest version.
