Several Android phones do not come with Google Play pre-installed, especially those released in China. Let’s take Xiaomi phones for example. Several variants of the phone are released in two editions: the International edition with MIUI Global build and the China edition with MIUI China build. However, the MIUI China build doesn’t have Google Play and any other Google apps installed due to certain reasons. Moreover, several custom Android ROMs also don’t have Play Store installed and hence third-party installation is needed.
Here in this page you can download essential Google Apps package including Play Store, Play Services, Account Manager, and Google Services Framework. The package is for ROM based on Android 7.0 Nougat like MIUI 8. The package has been tested to work perfectly on Mi 5 and Mi 5 Pro running MIUI 8.
It may be safer to flash Open Gapps package but you’ll need custom recovery like TWRP. This package will simplify the flashing process since you only need to download the package, extract it, transfer the APK files to your phone, and install them one by one.
The file is stored and mirrored in our Europe server available as direct download link. Use software like IDM, DAP, or Flashget to take advantage of resume-able connection.
Inside the package:
- Google Play Store (apk)
- Google Play Services (apk)
- Google Play Games (apk)
- Google Account Manager (apk)
- Google Services Framework (apk)
- Google Calendar Sync (apk)
How to use? Install each apk file one by one but never run any of them until you have installed them all.
This full Gapps installer is for MIUI 8 Android 7.0 but it may also be installed on most of devices running any Android N ROM. Feel free to leave feedback.
