Hello, was anyone able to make Whatsapp work on Mate 40 Pro global ? I tried to install it but it keeps saying that "Google Services" are needed, then a circle keeps turning and I can't do anything....

Edit : Sorry, the reason for the issue is that I installed MicroG, once I uninstalled it, everything worked fine.

Hi,microg is needed for youtube vanced. So what happens if you install microg after you have installed WhatsApp ? Does WhatsApp still work ? Are you able to use both WhatsApp and youtube vanced ?

Also, any idea how to install google services on mate 40 pro?

Thank you ! Another question, I want to transfer my WhatsApp chats over from my Asus rog Phone 3 to the mate 40 pro, how can I do this seeing as I don't have google drive backup on the mate 40 pro? Normally I back up to goggle drive and download the WhatsApp chats from google drive , but the mate 40 doesn't have google.. so how can I download or move my WhatsApp chats backup over to the Huawei so I don't lose all my chats ?

Hi, just make a backup on the old device, on the new Huawei copy the entire WhatsApp directory to the internal memory. Install WhatsApp in Huawei, enter the number, dta restore that backup and you're done.
