How to Install Google Play Store on Xiaomi MIUI (Steps & Screenshots)

As Xiaomi continues to develop its MIUI OS, older ways to install Google Play Store on a Xiaomi device become obsolete. In fact our how-to article on this very topic published less than half a year ago is already out of date.

In this article we share not one but two different tips for installing Google Play Store on 2 different versions of MIUI.

Note: devices sold by Xiaomi outside of China already come with Google apps pre-installed so this article doesn't apply to you.

1. Download the latest Google Play Store app from APKMirror in the form of an APK file (the file name ends with .apk)

2. Open the Explorer app, then go to the Download folder


3. Tap the APK file you've just downloaded. You will see a list of permissions the app needs, as well as a warning that the app is from an unknown source. This is normal when installing from an APK file. Tap Next to proceed.


4. That's it! When you launch Google Play Store for the first time, you'll have to enter your Google username and password (Gmail ones work too).


Once you have Google Play Store, we you can install many useful apps such as Chrome, YouTube and Google Maps.
