How to install the Play Store on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro

Download files

First of all, get a USB key - USB-C preferably, but I used a USB-A dongle and an adapter to USB-C and it worked fine - and format it.

Then download the files to your computer - we have removed the download link after updating our paper. This will end up with a compressed file called GMS.zip. Before going any further, you need to extract the Google folder and the Huawei.zip file. Copy these two elements and paste them on your formatted USB drive.

Install files on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro

Now you need to connect the USB key to your Huawei Mate 30 Pro. Again, if you're using USB-C that's fine, but it also works with an adapter. From there, follow the instructions that follow.

  • Open the file manager
  • In the central tab " Categories ", click on " USB key ».
  • In the list that appears, find the file "Huawei.zip".
  • Long press it
  • In the bar that appears at the bottom of the screen, press " Plus »
  • Then click on " Extract to »
  • Select " Current directory "And tap" OK »

We are now well into the installation of Google services and the Play Store. Now go back to the "Categories" tab of the file manager and perform the following actions.

  • Press on " USB key »
  • In the list, look for the "Google" folder
  • Keep pressing on it
  • In the options bar at the bottom of the screen, choose " Copier »
  • Then click on " Other locations »
  • Select " Internal storage »
  • Tap on " Coller »

Once all of that has been done, make sure that the Google folder contains six APKs in total. Are they all there? Perfect, let's continue, in a few minutes, you'll be using the Play Store and Google services on the Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

Restore file backup

We are almost there ! This time, it will be necessary to restore the files. Nothing's easier. Open the phone settings and select the menu " System and update "," Backup and Restore »Then the option "Save data". On the screen that follows, you will need to agree to the terms of use before proceeding further.

Here's what to do next:

  • Choose " External storage »
  • Click on " USB storage device »

You will find a backup file just below the inscription " Restore from a backup ". Tap on it and you will come across a new screen. Here, you have to make sure that the line " Applications and data "Is checked before pressing the big button" Restore " below.

The interface will ask for a password, but don't panic! This is written in plain text just below the input field. You just have to copy it. The restoration is complete. When you return to your home screen, you'll see two new apps, one with Google's G, the other with a blue G.

Install Google apps

Come on, we believe it! One more little effort and it will be over! Return to the file manager, and go to the internal storage space. Reopen the Google folder you previously copied here to view the six APKs it contains.

Click on the first APK file and install it before repeat the same operation for the next five files.

Finalize the installation of Google services and the Play Store

You reach the goal, we arrive at the last step! Go back to the home screen and select the app with a blue G. Click on " Enable "Then" To allow ».

Please note, this application is in Chinese. No problem, just press the big blue button at the bottom, then validate with a new blue button in the pop-up that appears. Wait a few seconds until the icon on the right on the first line turns into an exclamation mark (!), Keep pressing the unlock button and restart your Huawei Mate 30 Pro.

When the smartphone turns on again, you can enjoy Google services, the Play Store and all the Google apps you want. The three screenshots below prove it.

We tried it on our copy and it works perfectly. Having said that, we cannot repeat it enough: we cannot guarantee the security of this installation.
