-With push notification I give full permission to the app you want push notification like Messenger, Gmail....
-Go to the Launch manager and select Manager manually then tick all the application items for which you want push notifications
-Battery setting : More battery setting >>> Stay connected while asleep
This is well known method, you can use it without GMS for applications not depending on services, we are talking about Gmail for example after you installed GMS....

I wonder, why it is so difficult to make push notifications working on HarmonyOS?
As far as I know, gbox, lighthouse and gspase might do that, so I suppose that it is possible not only on a virtual device, but also on a local one. It might be said that on a local device everything is difficult with system signature spoofing support and so on, but when I was using just microg only on HarmonyOS, push notifications surprizingly came flying sometimes! therefore, technically that is possible without changing ROM.
Is that clearly described somwhere:
1. What is the problem to make HarmonyOS working with GMS?
2. What does the app com.lzplay.helper from the video above?

A very good question. I get 2 errors:
Gmail does not announce the number of push notifications on the Gmail icon, but it still announces in the Status Bar that there is a new Gmail and a summary of the content. This problem is not serious for me because I still know there is a new Gmail.
- I can make calls on Messenger but can't receive Messenger calls. When there is an incoming caller, all is silent, the call screen is not turned on, there is no notification in the status bar, there is no notification sound... All are not but in Messenger, there is a missed call notification. This is my main problem.

Omg! Messenger call receiving issue has been resolved. I loaded an older version of Messenger on APKpure : 370.0.0.14.108 and it worked perfectly, I got the Messenger call
I think it is possible with other applications as well because it will be compatible with Google Services, Google Framework (Time Compatibility) that we made a toolkit to install Google on Harmony OS3.0.
Before Messenger I also downloaded Google map with an older version and it works better than the one available on Google Play.

Yeah... we have an outstanding hardware and OS, but with outdated software))) It's a pity..

Update : If you follow this method, don't install Device ID app and check it on Google Android device. Doing so google will check if your device is using pirated google and will lock your google.

*** No matter which method is used, the device cannot be checked on Google Android device

Could you please share how have you managed to do that?
I'm still experimenting
As you know google services and google services framework is to support google utilities mainly, but the manufacturers of applications available on the play store must also change according to these services.
We are using google services and google services framework before the legal battle between google and huawei took effect so it is old versions. That means it will not support the current applications on the play store
The method we already have, the remaining problem is how to find the latest version of google services and google services framework without being detected by google. This problem takes time to test.
To test it does not affect the device at all, because it is actually just apk software, it does not interfere with the boot loader so it is very safe >>> If you don't like it or don't, then we just remove it :D.

You say that is not entirely true, Google includes 3 main applications: Play Store, Google Services and Google Services Framework, these 3 applications are mainly to support native applications that belong to Google. In which the Play Store application still automatically updates to the new version, only Google Services and the Google service framework we have to use the version before the legal battle occurs.
So all other applications are still the latest versions of the software and google apps latest versions on the play store (Gmail, Map, Youtbe, Driver...) still work. built on Google Services and the old Google Services Framework.

Hi there, using a Mate 40 Pro. Recently just updated from HarmonyOS 2.0 to HarmonyOS 3.0. I've got my GMS installed on HarmonyOS 2.0. But when I updated to HarmonyOS 3.0, GMS doesn't work so well. Google Maps took a bit longer to locate my location. Youtube only works after opening several times but it also popped up "YouTube Keeps Stopping" if the app doesn't open. When I open a bus service app, it doesn't show the Google Map but only "Google Play services are updating". Anyone experiencing this issue?

Thanks! I tried that method for several times, but after installing "4 GSF Fix.apk", push notifications stop working. How have you managed to get over that?
I stopped at the following step after installing google services framework 4.1.2. The apps still run fine. However, at that time there will be a warning from Google Service that this device is not certified. You just need to go to the Google Service application and turn off the notification function is OK.
Maybe I will consider whether to install Google framework 10 or not.
I also did the last step before but push is not working like you.
But I think that google apps are still running fine, don't need to update Google Services Framework.
I'll test it out tonight if it's OK then that's a great thing, otherwise I'll go on and think why not as instructed to the last step.

    What model is it? Because the device must not only have HarmonyOS installed but must have Chinese firmware, on devices with HarmonyOS but global Google services can not be installed natively. If the model ends with 00, example (bal-al00), it should be the Chinese version

    Confirmed, I have it installed and it works on Huawei Mate 50 local version. Just keep calm and follow each step correctly
    During the installation process, you may not be able to run Google Play, but you just need to clear the data and run Google Paly to try again.

    *** Update : Running Gmail has an error that the application needs google services. After 6 hours, the Google applications are not running because of the error: Google does not support this device.
