Huawei Mate 30 without Google services! Here’s Huawei’s solution for users

Huawei Mate 30 Pro

This is no longer the first time in which we hear the Huawei Mate 30 will arrive without Google services. More and more information indicates that this will happen but Huawei already seems to have some solutions for users.

At the IFA in Berlin, where Huawei unveiled its new Kirin 990 processor, the brand’s CEO, Richard Yu, took the opportunity to answer some questions.

Google apps

Huawei CEO said they are looking at how Huawei Mate 30 users can download and install Google Apps and services after they have their smartphones in hand. That is, once again, confirms the strong possibility that the Mate 30 will not rely on Google services.

Since Android is “open source” the CEO said it would be “quite simple” for the user to install Google services on Huawei smartphones. A statement that is not a lie but not true either.

Most relevant applications that the Huawei Mate 30 will not have

  • Google Play Store
  • Google Maps
  • Youtube
  • Google Photos
  • Gboard
  • Gmail
  • Play music
  • Google Drive
  • Duo

A bigger problem for Huawei

The problem is that Huawei cannot offer these Google services in its app store. Due to the impediment of negotiation with American companies. But, Yu also noted that third-party developers have been working with them on possible solutions, as Huawei itself is unable to provide Google Mobile Services on new products due to the ban.

This wouldn’t be the first time a manufacturer tasked users with installing Google services instead of offering pre-installed support. Chinese brand Meizu previously allowed users to install Google services via an app store pre-installed on its phones. This could, therefore, be one workaround for Huawei if/when the Mate 30 series hits the West without Google support.

But, when an app is not in the Google Play Store, users risk installing Apps via APK and third parties. If users know what they are doing it is not a problem. However, there are very good people who have no idea. An example of this was Fortnite and the malware and spyware madness that was spread to Android due to fake Apps.

    Even if you download google app store yourself still doesn’t solve the problem of Google certification for popular apps like Netflix, hbo go, Hulu, Amazon prime video etc.

    Don’t believe the Huawei, this is not true.. Google can block any devices anytime.. You risk do nothing with the smartphone. In two years Huawei remains just in remembering if not solve with Google. And i think Google remains in standby, and wait the China cut the ban for the Google web page.

      Try first time, after you can talk.. Without services certification, you can’t.. When you try to install Netflix, you have this messages:
      1. You device not suport this app..
