How to Install Google Play Store or GMS on Honor Magic 3 and Magic 3 Pro

In this tutorial, we will guide you to install the Google Play Store or GMS on your Honor Magic 3 and Magic 3 Pro. Due to the ongoing US-China Trade War, quite a few parties are at a loss. Among them, Huawei, and particularly its user base, seems to be the most affected one.

Without digging deep into the political repercussions, this slugfest has resulted in the OEM’s restriction or ban on using the Google Mobile Services, popularly known as GSM. For the unknown, GMS is the Google apps package that comes pre-bundled on Android devices. These aren’t a part of the Android Open Source Project, and as a result, every OEM has to take a license from Google to incorporate this GMS onto their devices.

Now since Huawei isn’t allowed, as of now, to use the GSM, hence users are losing on all the goodies. In other words, there will be no Play Store, YouTube, Google App, Photos, and any and every app provided by Google. We guess that’s the worst thing that could happen to any Android device. However, thanks to the Android open-source nature, there’s always a way out, and right now, it’s no different. With a pretty handy tweak, you could now easily install the Google Play Store or GMS on your Honor Magic 3 and Magic 3 Pro.

Before going ahead, let’s make one thing clear. You can’t simply install the Play Store or any Google Apps simply by sideloading it on your device. Because of this, you at least need to have the basic Google services framework, which unfortunately is absent in the above-mentioned Huawei devices. However, with this nifty trick, you could enjoy all the Google apps. Here is what needs to be done for that.
