China has a strict policy against Google Apps and its services. The smartphones manufactured in China are not allowed to support Google apps. So the firmware/operating systems developed for Chinese phones do not have google apps and Google Play store pre-installed. The operating system of Huawei, Xiaomi, ZTE, Alcatel, and Redmi phones do 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, it’s not developed by Google but it is 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 firmware. Most efficient method to have all google apps is to install and download Google Installer APK on your Android phone.

If your phone is running on MIUI. And you have updated to latest firmware. It will wipe out all the google apps and google play store. 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.

Download Google Installer APK v 2.0 for Chinese Phones

Chinese government policy does not allow Google apps and Google Services. So the developers of firmware remove the Google apps from the firmware. You have to manually install gapps. Once you install google play store on your Android phone. You can download and run all the apps present in the store including Google apps.

Following is the full procedure on how to download Google installer APK on your Huawei, Xiaomi or Redmi phones.

  • Download Google Installer APK v 2.0 from Here. (Mirror)

Follow the steps to install google installer which will allow you to install all the google apps including Google Play Store:

  • First of all, move the downloaded Google Installer APK 2.0 to the internal storage of your phone.
  • Goto Settings -> Advanced Settings ->Security ->Enable Download from Unknown Sources.
  • Now locate Google Installer APK file using the file manager on your Chinese phone.
  • Now Open and Install the APK. Click on OK and install. You will see a blue circle tap on it.
  • Now click on the yellow circle. Now, it will ask you to install google services framework.Download Google Play Store on Huawei
  • Click on Install and then click on OK.
  • In the next step, you have to click on Red Circle.
  • Download Google Play Store on HuaweiAccept the terms and give permissions as follows.Download Google Play Store on Huawei Download Google Installer APK
  • Now you can download Google Play Store from here. and Install it on your Phone.
  • Once you have installed Google Play Store you can install any google app from there.
  • You can also download and install any Google app via its APK file.
  • Although most phones do not require to install google play services separately. If Google play store does not install google play services itself. Download the APK file of Google Play Services and install it on your Huawei phone.

Note: If you have downloaded the Google Play Store on your phone and it is still not working use this guide to install GSM Framework to support the functioning of Play Store.

That’s all. If you have any question regarding how to install and download Google Installer on a Chinese phone. That does not have google play store or google apps. You can ask me in the comments. If you would like to share your views with us. You are most welcome. Google installer is a great app which has made life easy for the people who got their phone from China and they were unable to make use of any Google app.

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.… Read more »

Hello,
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.

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

Same as everyone else on this thread, it doesn’t work. I even talked to a tech expert who has lots of experience with the Android operating system and he’s tried on a few Chinese phones and the same issue persists. My tablet is going back.
