In forced isolation from Google, Huawei did a really great job. She finally turned her AppGallery application kiosk into a real store, found something to replace most of the search giant's services, and even launched her voice assistant Celia, which turned out to be quite convenient and functional at the start. But this is all nonsense compared to the fact Huawei had to bypass the restrictions of the American government and give users of their smartphones access to applications that are not in AppGallery.
Huawei found a way to bypass US restrictions, albeit with compromises
To enable users to download apps from American developers who refuse to put them on AppGallery, Huawei has come up with a brand new app called Petal Search. Despite the fact that initially everyone thought that it would replace the Google search service on smartphones and tablets of the Chinese brand, the result was a little different. There is indeed a search function in the application, but here it is rather optional, if not a side effect. After all, the main focus of Petal Search is on finding 'forbidden' programs.
How to download Huawei Instagram
- Go to AppGallery and download the Petal Search application from the catalog;
This is the Petal Search service. It allows you to download anything
- Click on the search bar and enter the name of the application you are looking for;
Confirm download and use prohibited applications
- You will see a list of applications that match your request, and sites from where you can download them;
- Click on the required application and confirm its download.
Before downloading anything, pay attention to where the application is downloaded from. The name of the Internet site is indicated right under its icon. If these are resources like APKPure, APKMirror or DownloadAPK, be prepared for the fact that first the installation file will be downloaded, which you will have to install yourself, and then remove from the device so that it does not take up precious space. However, for those who do not like to pay for software, downloading software from the outside is quite a common practice.
How to download to Huawei apps from Google Play
Petal Search can even download Google apps
The database of applications that Petal Search offers is quite extensive. There is not only Instagram, Facebook, WhatsApp and other popular applications from American developers, but also Google Maps, Google Assistant, YouTube and even Google Pay. But if I, in general, do not worry about the performance of the cards, assistant and video hosting, then I do not know how the payment service will work on a device without Google Play Services. However, you can find them in Petal Search, so it is possible that there will still be no problems, however, I would not hope for a positive outcome, given that Google continually blocks its services on smartphones Huawei .
Should I download the APK to Android
Smartphones Huawei still shackled by restrictions
Is what Huawei offers safe? Well, frankly, yes. Anyway, all the sites I came across in Petal Search were familiar to me and, most likely, safe. About one of them – APKPure – we did come out with detailed material, be sure to read it, there are many interesting things. True, Huawei notes that it is not responsible for the content that you download, since Petal Search is only a link for those who want to download software that is not available in AppGallery. And according to the company, users themselves should be engaged in ensuring their own security.
Would I use Petal Search apps myself? Probably not. Still, downloading APK files is a rather compromise procedure. Not only does Huawei not give you any guarantees regarding their safety, they also take up extra space on the device. As a result, downloading two to three dozen APK files can rob you of up to one gigabyte of free memory. Therefore, I would prefer to download what is, and not try to find workarounds, which are also unsafe.
