How to Install Google Apps on Xiaomi MIUI Devices [No Root]

In this guide, we will be telling you how to install Google Apps on Xiaomi MIUI devices. Xiaomi is known for its state of the art phones at affordable prices. The company has recently launched the Xiaomi Redmi 4X and some users are complaining about the Google Apps being missing from the phone. That is because the Chinese variant of the phone does not come with the Google Play Store app or any Google services.

Xiaomi phones used to have Google Apps before, but they had to remove them from the MIUI ROM to comply with policies in China. But that does not mean that you cannot install them on your Xiaomi phone. Plus, an Android phone is never complete without Google apps and its services. This is where Google Installer comes in.
