China has strict policy against google and its apps. The smartphones manufactured in China are not allowed to support Google apps. So the ROMs developed for chinese phones do not have google apps and Google play store. Operating system of Huawei and Redmi phones MIUI does not have google apps. So, if you buy a phone from china you might get hard time to get the google apps. Some apps like snapchat depend upon google play services to work. Although, its not developed by google but its dependent upon Google play store and services. Outside china it can be a real headache to live without google apps. There are many methods to install google apps on chinese phones running on chinese ROM. Most efficient method to have all google apps is to install and download Google Installer APK on your Android phone.

You can install Google apps also known as gapps by installing Google Installer. In the guide below. I will guide you on how to install and download Google Installer APK v 2.0 on Chinese phones.

    Hi, without custom recovery which I was never able to install on my chinese samsung S6 this seems like the most likely to work. Once everything is installed and I press on the red circle, I get many notifications about framework or services having stopped. I haven’t been able to reach the the permission or the “checking for info page”.
    I also tried the older version from the “mirror” which seems mostly ok but get a “parse error” when trying to install the play services.
    Unfortunately, I have the new androind 6.0.1 system which may be why this doesn’t work.
    Any suggestions or a newer version??

    I purchased last week in China the Huawei Honor. Unfortunately no Google at all. So I thought, I will fix it with the PhoneClone app – recommended by Huawei. It copied all datas, apps, but Google still does not work. I tried also to reset the phone and install the Google apps manually, but is is still asking for some “basic GMS package”.
    So then I found your procedure. However, even I did it exactly like You wrote, still no success with Google. Still asking for mentioned package.
    Any advices ?

    • last solution is to unlock bootloader of your Huawei Honor and install firmware of some other country which supports Google Play Store and Google Play Services.
      Best of Luck.

      • Jummel Sta Rita

        How to unlock the boot loader? So i can install firmware ofother country. My phobe is samsung j7

        • You dont have to unlock bootloader on Samsung smartphones. Just install the firmware you want to.
