Xiaomi gave an official explanation regarding the fact that Google applications and services can no longer be installed on the company’s smartphones in China.
A few days ago, Redmi K30 Ultra and Redmi 10x 5g users in China confirmed that the ability to install Google apps disappeared after updating to MIUI 12.5.
In its statement, Xiaomi clarified that many misunderstood the following policy change. Some sources report that now all Xiaomi smartphones do not support Google mobile services, but this is not the case.
According to an official statement, various Xiaomi and Redmi smartphone models sold in China provide Google Mobile Services infrastructure. Users of these models will not experience any changes. Only users of those smartphones that are initially delivered without the installed GMS infrastructure will now not be able to install Google applications and services.
Xiaomi also announced that it plans to release more models with the ability to install Google mobile services in the future to meet the needs of users. This information is useful for those who prefer to save money and order smartphones directly from China. Now you need to make sure that they provide the appropriate function.
Finally, the manufacturer confirmed that nothing has changed for the international versions of Xiaomi and Redmi smartphones.
