Good evening ladies and gentlemen! I have really good news to share with all of you. As you have already read the title, we have finally found a working version of the Google Play Store on the EMUI 9. Thanks to our site user Tonny, who found the working Play Store version and reported it. Tonny successfully installed the Play Store on his Huawei Mate 9 running on EMUI 188.8.131.52. We are going to share the same Google Play Store APK with all of you here. You can find the Google Play Store APK for EMUI 9 here. Before you install the Play Store on EMUI 9, let me tell you why it wasn’t working before.
Google Play Store on EMUI
In order to abide by the laws of the Great Firewall of China, phone makers like Huawei and Xiaomi remove the Play Store and Play Services from there devices. Huawei does this with all of its Huawei and Honor devices.
Previously, it was easily possible to install the Play Store on Chinese phones using third-party installers and apps. Starting with the EMUI 9, Huawei blocked the Play Store installation even with those installers.
This is when things took a frustrating turn. The Huawei and Honor owners were quite angry and they have been leaving their feedback on our site every now and then.
I have been trying to keep our respective Huawei and Honor users with all the latest updates regarding the Google Play Store, and they have remained equally cooperative too. As a result, Tonny shared how he got the Play Store running on his phone, and I believe it is totally fair to help all other users do the same.
