How to Install Google Play Store or GMS on Huawei P50 and P50 Pro

This tutorial will guide you to install the Google Play Store or GMS on your Huawei P50 and P50 Pro. Due to the ongoing US-China Trade War, quite a few parties are at a loss. Among them, Huawei, particularly its user base, seems to be the most affected.

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. GMS is the Google apps package pre-bundled on Android devices for the unknown. 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 to use the GSM, 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 Huawei P50 and P50 Pro.

How to Install Google Play Store or GMS on Huawei P50 and P50 Pro

Before going ahead, let’s make one thing clear. You can’t 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, you could enjoy all the Google apps with this nifty trick. Here is what needs to be done for that.
