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 We are going to share the same Google Play Store APK with all of you here.

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. 

If you want to learn more about the restrictions in China, you can take a look at this post here, here, here, and here.

  1. Good list, Abdullah Akbar! I also use PicsArt photo editor and I am very much satisfied with all the functions and capabilities it suggests.
    By the way PicsArt is written as a one word PICSART and not separately! 🙂

  2. In my Honor 10 Lite did not work. It must be because it does not come with google play services already installed. I tried to install separately but it did not work either.

  3. This still doesn’t work. I installed as advised above but then when I launch the app I get a white screen for a fraction of second and closes. The phone is Honor 8A (EMUI 9.0.1) purchased in China just a few days ago. Please help!

  4. Just updated EMUI to 9.0.1, tried few strategies you described but nothing works 🙁
    Stil no Play Store for me (did not dowgrade for EMUI 8 yet)
    Waiting for a final solution

  5. i downloaded the apk and got it installed on my Huawei 9S however after getting installation successfully done when i try to sign in to play store it just does not move forward to sign in page. can you please help


  7. I think you are mistaken, you wrote “In order to abide by the laws of the Great Firewall of China…”
    that’s not correct, It because of the actions of American government that are boycoting Huawei products
    that Huawei is forced to look for another OS and create their own playstore
    the laws of the great firewall have nothing to do with…

  8. Nah Sir, Its not working for Huawei Nova5. Its installed but when you click it, its just goes blank, sometimes message pop up as this is not compatible. I have also send you an email.
    Thanks for helping out!
