Here’s how to install Google Play Store on Huawei phones with the help of Googlefier app. As you all know latest Huawei/Honor Android phones come without Google Play Store and Google apps. It is because the company doesn’t have permission to add GMS (Google Mobile Services) on its phones. HMS (Huawei Mobile Services) is an alternative for the Google apps on Huawei phones, but not all users are fully satisfied with it for various reasons.

Luckily, you can still use the Google Play Store and other Google apps on Huawei and Honor phones. Thanks to XDA forum member bender_007, the Googlefier app helps you bring the service in a few steps without the help of a PC. The app installs GMS (Google Mobile Services) on the phone, allowing you to install Google apps on your Huawei/Honor phone from the Play Store.

FYI, the Googlefier app currently supports Huawei/Honor phones running EMUI 10 (Android 10) only. It won’t work on the latest phones running on EMUI 11 or up.

Keep in mind that Googlefier isn’t an official way to install Google apps on Huawei/Honor phones. It may or may not work on all phones. According to the developer bender_007 at XDA, it should work on devices launched between 2018 Jan – 2020 March. So you need to try it yourself at your own risk.
