Although there is, of course, still no official solution, a new and relatively simple way to install Google apps, including the Play Store, on Huawei phones without GMS arrived a few weeks ago.
Importantly, this is not an official method, and everyone should try it at their own risk. It’s supposed to work right now, but there’s no guarantee it will work later. The app’s source for the installation is unknown, and Google probably doesn’t like such loopholes.
If, despite the above, you do give it a try, you should do the following:
- The first step is to download the Chat Partner app from this link, 147 MB.
- Install and then run the app and select detect device -> Repair Now -> then click Activate the Device Administrator window.
- Restart your mobile, and the Google Play Store is supposed to work. Sign in with your Google Account and then delete the Chat Partner app.
If you receive an error message that your device doesn’t have a Play Protect certificate, try following the steps.
The method is reported to work (or worked) for Huawei P40 Lite, Mate 30 Pro, and Y7p models, but in theory, it could be suitable for any Huawei phone that came on the market without GMS.
However, we don’t know how long it will be usable, nor how reliable it is, so we advise everyone to avoid it. It’s only worth buying a new Huawei phone without GMS for someone who doesn’t stick to Google’s apps.
