It is no longer news that the US government banned Huawei from using Google services. The ban may have affected the Chinese tech giant, but the company is still fighting to survive. Recently It launched the P40 series running on Android 10.0 (AOSP + HMS) + EMUI 10. What this means, is that the device runs on Google’s OS, but doesn’t come with Google service.
In this post, I will show you how you can install the Google Play Store on your Huawei phone. It has been tested on the Huawei P40 lite and the Mate 30 Pro. While the process worked very well for the P40, the Mate 30 Pro showed a “not certified” error. What this means, is that the process does not work for every device.
How To Easily Install Google Play Store On Huawei Phone
To install Google Play Store on your Huawei phone, you need to download an app called the Chat Partner app from HERE. The app weighs 147MB and this will allow you can integrate Google Play Store to your device.
After downloading the app, run it and then tap Detect Device then Repair Now and finally (after the Device Administrator window shows up) Activate.
Restart the phone and you should have the Google Play Store ready and working. Log into your Google account and carry on (you can uninstall Chat Partner now). If you get a “Device is not Play Protect certified” error, try this procedure.
Please note that this process is an unofficial way to install the Google Play services on your Huawei phone and it’s not clear how long this method will continue to work. You can try and tell us if it works for you.
