Updated: How to Install Google Apps and Play Store Services on Huawei Phones

With users commenting problems logging into their Google account during the installation of this method, the steps have been revised to work around this.

This update will show a simple solution to logging into Google as well as a revision to older Step 7  which has now been replaced with a new, more reliable method. A lot of the segments have been overhauled so please kindly read again step by step. Its very easy and fast and will be very easy to do for this update of the fix to install Google Play Store on your new Huawei Device.

We can confirm this works on a Huawei Nova 7i, Huawei P40/P40 Pro and a Mate 30 Pro but some have confirmed it works on other Huawei devices as well. It does not make any permanent alterations to your Huawei phone so its safe and you can just factory reset your phone to remove all changes.

Note: This workaround will eventually stop working and we’ll try to updated as frequently as possible.


As with previous fixes, the last method has stopped working. For those adventurous enough, there is a workaround to installing Google Play on your Huawei device.

There is a new workaround as of late October 2020. See here for more details:

DECEMBER 2020: Installing Google on your Huawei Device – Googlefier

Confirmed working after latest Huawei update July 2, 2020.

Without further ado. Let’s proceed. I’ve divided this post into pages since some readers are skipping steps. Proceed only to the next step if you believe you’ve fulfilled the conditions of the current step.


We’ve seen your comments about the login not working  on Step 4 and since I don’t have a Huawei phone anymore to test, it took a while to check the solution we gathered.

The good news is that we’ve received reports of a workaround for now IF the regular steps are still not working for you. All you need to do is backdate or set your phone’s date to May 2020 or earlier.

We’ll update the step accordingly. The rest of the steps are the same.
