Huawei Phones such as Mate 30 can finally have access to install the Play Store and all Google applications. According to the first testers, the Google App Store can easily be installed on the smartphone by downloading the Google Mobile Services from the web. This process takes no more than 5 minutes. We explain below how it works.
Following the decree signed by Donald Trump last May, Huawei was unable to obtain an Android license for its Mate 30. Smartphones are, therefore, stripped of the Play Store and applications developed by Google, such as Google Maps, YouTube, or Gmail. As Huawei decided not to unlock the Mate 30 bootloader, it seemed at first impossible to install the Play Store without the Google Mobile Services system layer.

Not surprisingly, Huawei cannot legally encourage buyers to install the Play Store on their own. Nevertheless, the Chinese manufacturer has made the installation of Google’s services easier than expected, says 9to5Google. It is, therefore, possible to transform, for example, the Huawei Mate 30 into a “normal” Android smartphone by having the play store, including the Play Store. With this workaround.
