Core GMS Packages (GMS) – Google Mobile Services

The Core GMS Packages for Huawei Android phones. These packages refer to Google Mobile Services (GMS) core components that are typically pre-installed on Android devices that are certified by Google, including Huawei phones.

However, due to trade restrictions imposed by the US government, Huawei phones released after May 2019 do not have access to Google’s apps and services, including the GMS core components.

This means that users of these phones may not be able to access popular Google apps such as Gmail, Google Maps, and YouTube, among others, unless they install alternative apps or use workarounds such as sideloading.
