  1. Update MIUI to latest version
  2. Open the browser (blue planet icon), go to apkmirror.com and install the latest versions of:
Allow installation of unknown sources when asked.
Google Services Framework [9-4832352] (noarch)
Google Account Manager (noarch)
Google Play Services (arm64)
Google Contacts Sync (noarch)

Enable Google Contacts / Calendar synchronization
  • Go to Settings → Manage apps → Google Contacts / Calendar Sync
  • Enable Autostart and give all possible permissions such as write and read permissions over your contacts / calendar events
  • Restart your phone
It may take some time to apply.

Configure Google Pay
  • Download Google Pay
  • Go to Settings → More and set Default wallet to Use HCE Wallet
  • Go to Settings → More → Tap & pay and set Payment default to Google Pay

Hope this helps

Hi all, the following link is a one-click installer for Google play store and it's framework. It's in English. Please enjoy!

https://google-installer.en.uptodown.com/android/download
I tried the Google Installer of the Mi App Store but it did not work.
I encountered this error for most apps: Can't downgrade apps.

That is why I have listed the apps above so you know what to install and you are sure to get the latest versions for each.

I see. I have found a few Google Installer apps that might help but they are all in Chinese.... So your method might be the best

you update to 10.3.8, then go to app store, download google play store directly, and enjoy.
I also try the google installer and got error, but then find out that app store can install google play. Google service is on be default.

I had the same problem. Try to reinstall it, enable autostart and disable any energy restrictions in App Infos. Restart your phone eventually.

Weird because as far as I remember, when typing Google in the App Store, the only result was Google Installer.

anyone has else issue setting up card for instore payment with google pay?
miui 10.3.11

Can't complete set up for contactless payment
To resolve this, you'll need to contact your bank. You can still pay with this card on Google and across other apps and sites, just like before.

i have no issue with setting up these cards on another phone though...

I had the problem too and I tried all your steps but none worked. I found a guide on google which actually works. It's here http://en.miui.com/thread-4843639-1-1.html

Basically it says to turn off the MIUI Optimization and get an app from the Play Store called "App Permission Info" to bring back the AOSP style permission UI and set the permission for Contact and ContactSync app from there since MIUI permission doesn't work well on this particular case.

Edit:
I just found a way to access AOSP style permission without additional app on MIUI 10. Just search "optimization" in the settings and click on "Battery Optimization". You have to open it from the search list otherwise it won't open the AOSP style app info.

in my quest to install google play i did something wrong.
In notification i get a warning: "Update Google Play services - Google play services wont run unless you update..." but when i press on the notification, google play opens, with Play services and the only option is "Deactivate".
Can anyone point out a solution?
