How To Install Google Play On A Xiaomi Phone


Adding Google services to a Xiaomi phone is easy when you know how. If your Xiaomi phone came without Google Play, here's how to add it.

If you didn't buy the Global version of your new Xiaomi phone, you may now be regretting your purchase. It's a great phone, yes, but if you don't speak Chinese you may be struggling without the software. Fortunately it's easy to add all the usual Google services with which you're familiar.

Note that we've installed Google Play on a Note 5A running MIUI 9.5. If you are running an older version of the OS you may not be able to install the necessary software, so it's worth checking you're running the latest version first.

How to update a Xiaomi phone
Update MIUI 8
  • Open the Settings app
  • Scroll down to and select 'About phone'
  • Tap the link at the bottom of the screen for 'System updates'
  • Follow the prompts to install any software that may be available
Update MIUI 9
  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap the top link for 'My device'
  • Tap MIUI version
  • Tap Check for updates
  • Follow the prompts to install any software that may be available
How to install Google Play on MIUI 9
Assuming you are now running the latest version of MIUI, you'll need to enable the installation of apps from unknown sources, then install the various Google services required to run Google apps on your phone.
  • Open the Settings app
  • Tap on 'Additional settings'
  • Tap on 'Privacy'
  • Toggle on the button for 'Unknown sources'
  • Open the Mi App Store
  • Search for 'Google'
  • Tap Install next to the top result - a 0.2MB file
  • Once installed press Open
  • Tap the large blue circular button on the next screen
  • The installer will run through the installation of the various services required: the Google Services Framework, Google Account Manager, Google Play Services, Google Calendar Sync, Google Contacts Sync, and finally the Google Play Store. Tap Install for each when prompted
  • Once the Play Store has been installed tap Open
  • Enter your Gmail address and password, and agree to the permissions
  • Google Play is now installed on your device, and you can install apps from here as you would on any other phone, including Gmail, YouTube and Google Drive

Dell XPS 13 9380 (2019) Review

Dell's flagship laptop returns to us in 2019 with refreshed specs, a brand new webcam design and a cheaper model. We review the XPS 13 9380 in full.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
The XPS 13 for 2019 ticks all the boxes. It looks great, the build quality is excellent, it’s nice and portable and has a wide range of specs to choose from.
While not a massive upgrade from last year's model, it’s had some solid refinement including getting the webcam back into the top bezel and also introduces a more affordable Core i3 edition.

Huawei P30 Pro Release Date, Price & Specs Rumours

Huawei's MWC press conference didn't include an announcement of the P30 range. Instead, it will hold a launch event in Paris at the end of March. We round up rumours, speculation and more on the new Huawei line-up, including the expected P30 release date, price and specifications.

Huawei Mate 20 X Review

The Huawei Mate 20 X is an obscenely large smartphone but it has many of the features of the Mate 20 Pro for less. Here’s our full review of the huge premium slab
Should I Buy The Huawei Mate 20 X?
With a bigger screen, bigger battery and smaller notch than the Mate 20 Pro, the Huawei Mate 20 X also has the same camera set up and adds a headphone jack. If you want the most screen possible, it might be for you. 
You lose the curved display, wireless charging, full water resistance and secure Face ID but for many that won’t matter if a huge display, outstanding camera and great performance are top of your list. If you want a normal size phone, get the Mate 20 Pro.

Samsung Galaxy S9 vs Samsung Galaxy S10e

Samsung's Galaxy S range has been updated and here we compare the S10e - the new 'lite' model - to last years' Galaxy S9 to help you decide which phone is best for you.
Should I Buy The Samsung Galaxy S10e Or Samsung Galaxy S9?
The S10e could be the sleeper hit of this year. It doesn’t have the embedded fingerprint sensor of the S10 and S10 Plus or their triple cameras, but it comes with the same processors, new screen design, ultra-wide camera, and all in a compact and comfortable format with a smaller price-tag.
That being said, the S9 is still an excellent device, and its new, lower price makes it a definite bargain.
