Google Sync on Huawei

Huawei phones have been struggling with the notifications and sync issue for a long time. Although, Huawei now stands with the best smartphone manufacturers in the world. Their fate changed when Google decided to let them produce Nexus 6P. Once unknown in the USA and most of the European markets, now Huawei is renowned all over the world for making exceptional smartphones. In this guide, we will talk about how to fix Google Sync on Huawei phone for a number of apps like Gmail, Calendar, Google Drive, Google docs, Google photos, and other services.

There are some pitfalls in the operating system of Huawei smartphones. These smartphones are running on EMUI which is AOSP (Android open source project) firmware of Android. Turns out, Huawei has some power saving features which triggers a bug that leads to now showing notification of some apps. Looking into the problem, I found many Huawei phones are facing the same Google sync issue. Even in the latest phones like Honor 6x, Mate 10, Mate 20 Pro, Huawei P20 Pro, P30 Pro, P40, P9 and Huawei Mate 8. The issue seems to be persistent.

Well, most people suffering from issues of Google sync on Huawei phones are using Chinese variant of EMUI. It does not come with Google services, even if you somehow manage to get the google services on your Huawei phone. The sync and notification from Gmail and other Google services do not work. Even if it somehow works, it will not display notifications of some app or won’t sync your phone to your Google Account.

Fix Google Sync on Huawei Phones for Gmail, Contacts and other Services:

Some of the phone versions come with a version of Google Contacts Sync that has issues. You just have to uninstall it and download the earlier version.

  1. First of all on your Huawei device, open Huawei App Store (HiApp)
  2. Search for Google Contact Sync. It would be version 6.0-XXXX. The other one which comes pre-installed is 7.1.2.
  3. Install it. You might have to uninstall the latest version to install the previous version.

Note: If you can’t find it in the HiApp. Download Google contacts sync APK from here.

  • Once installed, make sure you turn off auto-update for this app and don’t update it manually.

If you are facing issues with getting all the google services. You should reinstall google play services on your Huawei phone. It will fix all the issues. Here is a guide on how to install Google play services on Huawei phones.

A friend of mine had the same issue. He Installed Google contacts Sync from the APK above. It’s been 40 days, there isn’t an issue of Google contact sync on Huawei honor 6x. Once installed just don’t update it.

Huawei now stands with the tech giants of this era. It has improvised in all the fields in recent years. Huawei smartphones are known for their hardware quality. They are durable and long last. There are few things that Huawei need to improve, one of them is the operating system and software.

That’s all, I hope this guide helped you to fix issues with google sync on Huawei. If you have any questions or queries. You can ask me in the comments. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Google map Location history does not work. It doesn’t sync to Google account. Also, p10 plus doesn’t show up on the Google linked devices. Do when I need to send the searched map to cellphone. The p10 doesn’t show on the list of devices to send to. 🙁
