Original article:

Working in technology related field teach me something good: always have a backup and mitigation plan in case things go the unexpected way – or in technical term: always have try-and-catch error implemented, so that when unexpected error comes, program doesn’t crashed. That’s exactly what happen to Huawei right now and what Huawei so far has been doing.

From recent news, we know that US government is banning Huawei. As a result, many US companies – if not all – already cut ties with Huawei. Google was one of the company who cut ties with Huawei. Though in the end US government gave extra time to Huawei to settle things with existing companies, but Huawei as one of the big player in Technology space – like me – they had to prepare for the worst. Huawei has prepared their try-and-catch error.

Google cut ties. Huawei has AppGallery

Not sure when Huawei really started the project, but today Huawei is ready with its own app store – in case it lost access to Google Play Store. Huawei has Huawei AppGallery.

Though at this moment, the app libraries and games selections are not as many as you can find on Google Play Store, but Huawei, for sure on their end, is pushing for more developers to join its App Store.

Huawei AppGallery apps and games selection may not be as huge as Google Play Store, but they are growing.

So in case Google really cut access to Google Play Store, you can always download Huawei owned app store, called the AppGallery here.

Here is how to install and use Huawei AppGallery.


In order to install Huawei AppGallery and apps or games belongs to the AppGallery, you have to first enable “unknown sources”.

Read here for details step by step on how to do it.

Disclaimer: By default, unknown sources is disabled. And there’s a reason for it. Google as the Android maker wants you to be protected and be safe from anything malicious while at the same time to keep people using Google’s own Google Play Store and not something else. By enabling unknown sources, you will have the ability to install 3rd party apps, including alternative app stores (such as Huawei AppGallery) other than Google Play Store.
