According to my Mate 30 Pro and others, this is the status
  • Netflix ("Could not reach netflix service")
  • Google pay (works for some, not for others)
  • All Google apps (unless you installed before LZplay.net was taken down)
  • Google translate (usually works without other google services)
  • Facebook/Messenger (login error)
  • Instagram (login error)
  • Amazon appstore (Cannot pass login authentication test)
  • TD Canada (fails to install even from Huawei app store)
  • Pandora
  • Nord VPN
  • Galaxy Wearable (works when restored from backup?)
  • Uber


That said, all apps that have a mobile web interface work fine, like Netflix and Facebook you can load in a mobile browser.

If anyone knows more, please tell me and I can update the list.

In case you're wondering, every phone brand in China does not ship with Google services (google is blocked in China), but they all have their own installer programs to install it all for you.

I currently have a Mate 10 and all apps work fine, and since it's a Chinese model I had to install Google services manually anyway, like I will on the Chinese Mate 30.

Since I don't have the phone, I heard from reviewers what apps they said weren't working correctly:

  • Netflix
  • Google pay (woks for some, not for others)
  • Youtube (Picture in picture issues)

If anyone knows more, please tell me and I can update the list.

In London UK. Phone is lovely apart from Google. Its the best phone out now. And I've tried them all. I'm trying as we speak to see how I can live without Google

The huawei email app is set to my Google email
I'm using the huawei China app store, so much better than if set to UK. And the amazon app store
I've restored all other apps from the huawei backup

It's doable. But I'd so rather not have to

The one thing is battery life is so much better without Google. Much

The back door to install google play service has been closed ... If Huawei still doesn't allow to unlock bootloader, keep these wonderful phones in mainland China ... We have to choose another phone with google play service ! Or you can accept for web link to use google application !

Historically even before the mate 30 pro, Chinese variants wouldn't allow 3rd party launchers. So based on that I'd say no.
