How To Make Google Play Service Run On Chinese Xiaomi Phones

Welcome Reader. If you're interested in locating a fix on how to make Google play run on Chinese Xiaomi Phones, then i think you're at the right place. Now, let's assume you bought a new Xiaomi phone and you noticed that it isn't compatible with the Google play app which is very crucial for Android users.



In case you're not aware, we have at least two kind of ROM in the Chinese mobile market which are the Chinese ROM and the Global Version ROM and we should know that Chinese ROM phones are way cheap compared to their Global version counterpart.

As we all know, Chinese ROM are not compatible with google services, apps, framework etc but the Global ROM is compatible with all google products and services including play store.

Now Let's Move Down To The Fix For This Problem

  • Option one is to return the phone and re-order for a Global version
  • Option 2: Unlock the Boot loader and install Global version
  • Option 3: Install Google Play Store, services and customize it the ROM to look like global version.

How to Install Google Play Store on Xiaomi Chinese Phones

Now bear in mind that we are making use of Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro running on MIUI 11 for this Fix. Your device doesn't matter at all since this fix applied to any kind and model of Xiaomi phone.

Now follow this steps below:
  • Launch the Mi App Store
  • Search for Google
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the list and select this option;
  • Just tap on the app with the google image as shown below


  • Select Install, then when it has downloaded tap Open
  • Select the big blue circular button to begin installing the various components



You will be prompted to allow the phone to install apps from unknown sources – select Settings, toggle on the slider, then proceed with the installation.


  • Allow any prompts for permissions that pop up
  • You will first be prompted to install the Google Services Framework. Click Install, then Done
  • Second is the Google Account Manager app. Click Install, then Done
  • Third is Google Play Services. Click Install, then Done

Even though at this point, installation begins to hang but don’t tamper with it… instead proceed with the next installation of Google Calendar by hitting the “Big Blue Button”.



Do the same for “Google Contact Sync”, and “Google Play” itself

Setting Up Your Google Account

  • Enter your gmail ID and password and hit the login button



  • Once you’ve logged in, go to your newly installed playstore and search for “Gboard”, hit the install button once and for all for the new keyboard to install

Setting Up Gboard as Default Keyboard

  • Click Enable in Settings, then toggle on Gboard. You should turn-off everyother option. Click Ok to the security prompt, then click Done.



  • Grant Permission and Synchronize Your Contacts
  • To display all of your contacts, you need to grant MIUI permission by doing the below
  • Go to Settings > Apps > Manage Apps
  • Scroll down to and select Google Contacts Sync



  • Turn on the slider next to Auto start
  • Open Permissions
  • Allow the following permissions: Modify and delete contacts; Read your contacts; Access accounts on device; Start in background



Exit the Permissions menu and open Battery Saver. Choose No Restrictions.


Next Option.

Google Calendar Settings

Go to Settings > Apps > Manage Apps > Google Calendar Sync

Again, allow it to Auto-Start and turn off the Battery Saver, then allow the following permissions: Read Calendar Events; Start in background

Finally, open Settings > Apps > Manage Apps > Google Account Manager

Toggle on Auto-Start and remove any Battery Saver options, then allow all permissions under the Privacy section

Delete All Chinese Apps on Your Home Screen

For your phone to be smooth and neat, i think this is the final step. Uninstall all Chinese apps on your home screen… press down and drag it up to an uninstall option. If you notice any of the app refusing to uninstall, just create a folder on your home screen and hide them all there.

You should also remove “Chinese search bar” from your home screen by using the Search option to find Home screen search bar, then toggle it off from your settings

That should be all for now Friends. If you encountered any problem with this tutorial, kindly indicate.

Thanks For Your Time...
