You can no longer install Google apps on the Mate 30 Pro

MUNICH-Huawei launched a new flagship smartphone recently, but it comes without popular Google apps such as Chrome or YouTube after United States sanctions kicked in, limiting its appeal to consumers.

"This GMS (Google Mobile Services) installer is ad-free, well-designed, and ONLY works for Huawei devices", wrote a user. That sounds great in theory, but in practice, any Mate 30 Pro buyer from the USA (if you can get it) and Europe wants Google apps preinstalled, particularly the Play store, Google Maps, and YouTube.

It meant that anyone buying the new phones wouldn't have access to Google's Play Store or apps like Gmail, YouTube, and Google search.

Soon after the Mate 30 event, it was discovered that you only need 10 minutes to install all the Google Android apps you love, and turn the Mate 30 Pro into the flagship it should have been without the ban.

The now widespread method to install Google Services on newly released Huawei devices relies on undocumented Huawei specific MDM APIs. That's because Huawei has been on a United States trade blacklist since May, and isn't permitted to do business with Google.

What's more, in news that likely has the United States government rubbing its hands together in glee, Wu's research claims that in order to use these undocumented permissions, the anonymous developer of LZPlay would need to have received certification from Huawei.

Losing access to Google's mobile apps will make it harder for Huawei to battle Samsung for top spot in the mobile phone market, because it will be less attractive to wireless carriers, said Jean Baptiste Su, principal analyst at Atherton Research.

Hours after Wu reported his findings, LZPlay vanished, 9 to 5 Google reports. Only apps signed with Huawei's keys can access these functions.

The two devices that Huawei has released since the ban, the Honor 9X in China and the Mate 30 series, both ship without Google Play.

The US blacklisting of Chinese tech giant Huawei is starting to bite after a workaround that allowed its users of the flagship Mate 30 smartphone to download Google apps, was cut off. And Google no longer certifies Mate 30 devices as "safe" in its SafetyNet system, which protects users and apps from security threats. Those are the APIs LZPlay uses to get Google apps running correctly on the Mate 30 Pro.

While it was hard to recommend doing this anyway due to the unknown provenance of the files, the fact that there is now no way to make Google services work on the Mate 30 is a near-fatal blow to the device.
