Is it possible to Install Google Play Store on HarmonyOS Huawei devices? We are sure many are asking themselves this question given that the latest Huawei Honor devices running on HarmonyOS cannot install and run stock Google Apps.
Owing to the ban, Huawei is unable to work with companies such as Google, Qualcomm, and Intel, among many others.
So, Huawei no longer has access to the very fundamentals of Android smartphones. Their new products thus can’t run Gmail, YouTube, Google Drive, Google Play Store, etc.
But as always, there is a walkaround for nearly every situation as technology keeps improving. In today’s short tutorial, we will be telling you how to Install Google Play Store on HarmonyOS Huawei devices.
Although you can download the APK files of Google apps Gmail, Google Maps, etc, and install they won’t work because the HarmonyOS is missing Google Play services required by them. So, using the method we have described here will be a good option.
