Huawei phones offer amazing cameras, solid performance, and unique designs. Huawei’s AppGallery is one of the largest app marketplaces and it offers all the latest apps, games, and more for your devices. Now, it’s got a great trick up its sleeve – you can now install Google apps straight from the AppGallery onto any Huawei device! It’s quite straightforward and is better than most of the previous workarounds.
Check out the video below to find out how:
How to install Google apps from AppGallery
All you have to do is go to AppGallery and search for the app that you want and install them on your phone like you normally do. Almost all the popular Google apps, including Google Maps, YouTube, and Google Drive, are available for download.
Once installed, all these apps will appear on your phone’s home screen and function like any other app. You can even sign into your Google account on them. That means you can access the saved locations on the map and the videos you added to the Watch Later playlist on YouTube.
As these are proper apps and not web shortcuts. The issues users were facing while using the web shortcuts, such as YouTube videos not playing in full screen, are also a thing of the past. All these are possible thanks to a third-party app called GBox, which also works on other Android smartphones.
Non-Google apps that use Google services for some of their features will also work without hiccups using this method. Microsoft Teams, which used to experience reliability issues before, can now run smoothly. The results are just as promising for apps such as Uber that use in-app maps.
Moreover, you will be able to install these apps from AppGallery, and they will run smoothly. This method works on all the recent Huawei smartphones, including the Mate50 Pro, nova 10 Series, and P50 Series.
With the release of the Mate50 Pro, many users looking to upgrade their smartphones found themselves enticed by the phone’s features but were unable to make up their minds because of the lack of Google services. Now that almost any Google apps can be used on Huawei phones, the age-old problem can finally be put to rest.

Samsung and Google Cloud Bring Gen AI to Samsung Galaxy S24 Series
Samsung Electronics and Google Cloud have announced a new multi-year partnership to bring Google Cloud’s generative artificial intelligence(AI) technology to Samsung smartphone users around the globe. Starting with the Samsung Galaxy S24 series announced today at Galaxy Unpacked in San Jose, California, Samsung will be the first Google Cloud partner to deploy Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI via the cloud to their smartphone devices.

“Google and Samsung have long shared deeply held values around the importance of making technology more helpful and accessible for everyone. We’re thrilled that the Galaxy S24 series is the first smartphone equipped with Gemini Pro and Imagen 2 on Vertex AI,” said Janghyun Yoon, Corporate EVP and Head of Software Office of Mobile eXperience Business at Samsung Electronics. “After months of rigorous testing and competitive evaluation, the Google Cloud and Samsung teams worked together to deliver the best Gemini-powered AI experience on Galaxy.”
Samsung is the first Google Cloud partner to deploy Gemini Pro on Vertex AI to consumers. Built from the ground up to be multimodal, Gemini can generalize and seamlessly understand, operate across, and combine different types of information including text, code, images, and video. Starting with Samsung-native applications, users can take advantage of summarisation feature across Notes, Voice Recorder, and Keyboard. Gemini Pro on Vertex AI provides Samsung with critical Google Cloud features, including security, safety, privacy, and data compliance.
Galaxy S24 series users can also immediately benefit from Imagen 2, Google’s most advanced text-to-image diffusion technology from Google DeepMind to date. With Imagen 2 on Vertex AI Samsung can bring safe and intuitive photo-editing capabilities into the users’ hands. These features can be found in Generative Edit in S24’s Gallery application. As part of this partnership, Samsung is also one of the first customers to test Gemini Ultra, Google’s most capable and largest model for highly complex tasks. The S24 series will also use Gemini Nano, an on-device LLM delivered as part of the Android 14 operating system, the most efficient model of Gemini for on-device tasks.
“Together with Samsung, Google Cloud sees the tremendous opportunity for generative AI to create meaningful mobile experiences that stimulate and strengthen connection and communication for millions,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud. “With Gemini, Samsung’s developers can leverage Google Cloud’s world-class infrastructure, cutting-edge performance, and flexibility to deliver safe, reliable, and engaging generative AI-powered applications on Samsung smartphone devices.”
